British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Sunday he believed that oil-rich Gulf states would be willing to help bail out countries stricken by the global credit crisis.
The British leader has said that he wants "hundreds of billions" of extra dollars pledged to the International Monetary Fund, noting that the Middle East has significant foreign exchange reserves fueled by previous surges in the oil price.
What makes Brown think the people of the Middle East are as complacent and unmotivated as American tax payers?
How is he going to wrestle the money away from them? They know what happened in the US. They aren't stupid.
It was easy with the American tax payers. They didn't even resist. Ignorant American taxpayers still don't realize what happened.
