The map has updated news about the protests and uprisings in each reagion in the Middle East and North Africa.
The reason why I ask if you are prepared is because our government isn't. Instead of increasing oil drilling in this country, he has shut it down. Since the Deep Water Horizon disaster the Obama admin. has only given out one,yes just one, permit to drill in the Gulf of Mexico. Does that sound like they are preparing for a possable energy crisis in the Middle East? If Saudi Arabia falls we are looking at a gas crisis bigger then the 70's. Other then sitting on their hands what is the Obama admin. doing about protecting our energy needs? Electric cars,wind mills, solar power? Those are distant and hopeful pipe dreams. Alt-energy is a long way away from being able to supply our energy needs. What is Obama doing to keep our economy going? Stopping drilling? Not giving permits for drilling?
It is painfully obvious that we can not count on our government to protect our interests and national security. With illegal protests,it's illegal to protest in Saudi Arabia, being scheduled this week and next, a revolution is starting to look like a possibility. None of us know if it will happen of not. But it would be foolish to not prepare.
You better have your back because this government doesn't.
