It’s funny that China is already Saudi Arabia’s biggest customer, because it was the United States who first convinced the Saudis to guarantee oil  with the Chinese in order to gain China’s support for economic sanctions against Iran.

This one sentence was just in a list of unfinished drafts I have for the blog; no links present. Occasionally I’ll start something and never finish, coming back to it months later to find the tidbit was actually interesting.
