Bret Feels Safer, Others Wonder Why

Bret, please excuse my cheesy blog title - I couldn't resist. Attached is an article which quotes John Chipman of the International Institute for Strategic Studies:

"Over all, risks of terrorism to Westerners and Western assets in Arab countries appeared to increase after the Iraq war began."

In an earlier comments section, Bret said:

"As for Europeans and Saudis, I couldn't care less what they think. I think we should be working toward regime change in Saudi Arabia as well."

Well, Bret may get his wish -- regime change is looking more likely in Saudi, but not necessarily to an alternative we prefer. Are you ready for $100 per barrel oil? All the stimulative debt-financed spending and tax cuts would be rendered meaningless as the economy would plunge into recession. Is this the regime change you had in mind?
