    Not strictly true. They have a fetish for white people, and they are particularly enamoured with Canada and Canadians. They have a lot of baggage associated with China and Korea, and an inferiority complex toward the US, but they don’t go beyond moderate dislike of almost anybody. Just like Americans, negative preconceptions abound among people who have had little contact wth foreigners, but even the least travelled tend to have a broader view.

    As the article in the OP says, the focus is currently on the best way to extract them. I suspect that there is sufficient motivation to propel them to a solution sooner rather than later.

    I agree. I kind of expand on my thinking in another post. i experienced a bit of the same myself being a Latino in rural America for years. It is in amazing place and I was sure I met my future wife when I lived there.

    Haven't seen such a delicious feast of crows since OPEC's shenanigans directly lead to the advent of fracking technology in the U.S.

    Yea, I guess there have been a few examples recently. You control/cut supply off and the market will find alternatives or other supplies.
