From Facebook (a comment on Juan Cole)

Waqaas's observation that fossil fuel rich are populated by Moslems is simply coincidental is exquisitely accurate... If the world was stealing Spanish oil, paying native Spaniards' leaders and oppressing the Spanish poor, we'd be ass deep in matadors wearing sequined bomb vests...


I'd cut out the middle man of arguing about how we dmad them hate us and write

"If most of the worlds remaining oil were in Spain we'd be ass deep in matadors wearing sequined bomb vests."

I don't think the claim is strictly true, but it does focus the mind.
