About the person above saying it is about oil, you are looking at proven crude oil estimates. These depend on discovered oil reserves that are fully
functional. ANWAR and the Gulf of Mexico don't count in these figures, neither does heavy oil, which is just oil and sand mixed together. Add these
figures in and the Western Hemishphere is a lot richer. There are also very promising oil fields in Central and South America that haven't been
But for the point of your arguement, let's consider that the Saudis have more oil there than here. Do you want us to believe that we did this just
for oil, and that oil is so important if we run out we will starve?
Tell any scientist this and you will get laughed out of the room. We might see a hiccup for about three months, but we will transition into other

But I bet what we see happen is a switch to ethanol. Diesel engines can already run on this no problem. They were actually designed to run on hemp and
Oh, and I'm a mechanical engineer that works freelance. I will never go into the army because I don't follow orders well.
I would go into the army but people don't realize it is one of the biggest beuracies in the world. It is full of backstabbers that will sell you out

It is a good thing I'm not in there because once I go in you will see the death toll skyrocket. If I ever got my finger on the button, I wouldn't
hesitate turning Iran, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia into a giant parking lot.
If some Arab threw crap at me, I will walk into the cell and cut his face off, and then beat him to death. I don't walk away from fights and I don't
care about spending time in jail.
