The funny and sad part is that Obama has been wanting the USA to get off of fossil fuels from the get go, promoting and wanting the US to move to more green and renewable energy sources. And all of the Republicans thought it was a bad idea.
Funny how Trump seems to think that he can do the same thing, and yet did not either see or want to see the problems that Obama had trying to get this idea out, that the country does not need fossil fuels to operate. Nor does it appear to him that if he does do as he states, the Saudi's could go to OPEC and ultimately cause a massive oil shortage in the USA by getting other countries in OPEC to join in and put the proverbial screws to the USA, in ways that I don't think that Trump is prepared for and the country is not prepared for either.

I am pretty sure the tech they have was bought.
If we destroy all that then steal everything. That would qualify as burning and looting and deserving of the repercussions that would surely follow such tyrant-like behavior.
However we probably wouldn't dare to do that because US intelligence thinks they may have acquired nukes from Pakistan. Nuclear deterrents and all.
Look up the history of OIL production in saudi arabia. I f i am not mistaken the saudis LEASE all the equipment from the oil companies.

The USA is beyond arms race with Quantum tech.
In fact guns verse money is just stupid different now.
We can create backholes and quantum bubbles specifically for new contingency plans. This is the only reason we owned nukes before, was to nuke the world if we were attacked. Now we can destroy the entire planet instead. You cannot hide in a cave from a Quantum Bubble. It destroys the entire universe.
The US also is working on a computer that causes nuclear reactions at a distance, when you just enter coordinates. If the enemy really wants to own cake, they're going to have to live with the fact we can remote detonate it.

NATO undermines the UN.
I am seeing signs of a possible massive shift coming here, if Trump wins, and Obama also get his spot as UN general secretary, and do a "deal" where all NATO's power is transfered to the UN, the UN could gain tremendous power under this scenario. 2017 will be an interesting year
