Food for thought

Saddam Hussein was toppled three years after he replaced the US dollar in oil sales with the Euro. Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown shortly after he replaced the US dollar in oil sales with the dinar and urged other African nations to do the same. Saudi Arabia supports the dollar denomination of oil sales and dutifully recycles the dollars it earns from oil sales into purchases of US weapons and US debt. That is probably why President Obama will veto a bill to allow the Saudi government to be sued by 9/11 victims.
