"oil be going? Us... I don't think so "
and what drives industry??? OIL
when was the United States the most prosperous in its History??
When gas was .10 cents a GALLON!!!!!!!!!
and that is what fueled America's Recovery,, for the first time in History,,
GAS was cheaper than dirt.
Then the Congress of the United States decided,, "We can't have that MR. ROCKEFELLER. "
So the Corporation was born.
There is no market like the Chinese and Indian market over time for oil, in a modern world everyone wants cars, as China and India modernize that's
2.5 Billion automobiles to fuel, even cents on the dollar from the oil assures another American century. All i'm saying is our involvement in the
quest to control energy isn't for what we ourselves need to hold, we can go decades with existing supplies, obviously we want a piece of the supply
to the east, The West moves slowly to natural forms of energy even as the population declines, China and India have a heck of a lot of internal
modernization to do and it will take fossil fuels to do it, heck China is struggling to move past Coal
Even without any "back door" deals with China....
One still has to ponder, what happens to the region when these wars end? Lets say this flares up... Iran and Ukraine, let's say the USA looses, has
to beat a retreat economy collapses... we end up in a position not unlike the soviets 20 years ago when the wall fell
The whole energy belt.... then sits there, it's infra structure kaput, it's modern defenses ravaged a void... to be filled
China borders Afghanistan and has a huge population, they CAN actually occupy,it's a straight walk to Siberia and Europe when we are done.... aligned
with them or not... we are handing them the region most likely
