How many nations are using there oil as an economic and diplomatic tool to control us? Look around we share a Southern border with one. Latin American countries, Africian States and of course the countries in the Middle East. Agree or dissagree
I'll like your opinions.

Iran already tried that and it was quite effective. After that event the national oil storage reserve was created to prevent such a thing from happening again.

Its more then enough to allow our military to operate if another country ever tried something like that. They might not publicly state it but the US has a policy that it will go to war to protect strategic oil supplies around the world.

You mention Latin American countries Im sure you are talking about Venezuela. President Chavez talks alot but hasnt done anything Venezuela only supplies about 15% of US oil imports. The largest amount of oil we import by far from any country comes from Canada, which I dont think we have to worry about them holding us hostage with their oil supplies.

Oil supplies can be a Achilles’ heel for any country. But you try to negate that weakness with reserves a strong military and friendly suppliers like Canada.
