It's sad that you take such an offhand attitude towards a very serious issue. There are no efficient alternatives to oil, nothing today moves without oil. And we are now retrograde in world oil supply, evidenced by the opening of the oil wars, covered by 'terrorist' pretexts
The rest of the world won't sit idle and allow the US to be the arbiter of the worlds remaining oil supplies. It's gonna get ugly, and 'terrorism' isn't the reason.
