All gave some, some gave all
To the haters on here that always want to scream "Blood for oil!' Please do your friggin homework!
America gets less thatn 2% of its oil from Iraq, the largest majority of our oil comes from Canada, South America, and right here in the Godd Ole USA.
In fact within the next 2 years America will become the largest non OPEC oil producing nation on earth. Last year America's biggest export was natural
gas and 58% of our oil consumption was domestic oil.
I know this because I work in the oilfields of the Bakken everyday and I see many of the reports and I have spent the last 9 years of my life working
in the oil industry all over the world. I worked in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and all around the Persian gulf in the oil industry and can tell you that
about 90% of middle eastern oil goes to the European Union.
The motto of ATS used to be "Deny Ignorance" but of late I am starting to think that it needs to be changed to "We embrace ignorance".
Really people get your facts straight before you go typing a bunch of babbling BS and dishonor people that have given their lives in an attempt to
make this country safe. I've seen kids 19, 20, 21 years old with their arms and legs blown off or their bodies mangled beyond recognition all in an
attempt to stop the spread of the radical groups like the Taliban and others that want to destroy America because we are the "Great Infidels" and
don't subscribe to their religious teachings. It really gets my blood boiling when I see ignorant people and their "Blood for oil" comments.
Let me say this, to all of you who think this country is so evil and terrible and that we invade other countries for oil when we have more oil in ND,
SD, and MT than Saudi Arabia.....you do realize no one is forcing you to stay here right?
You are more than free to pack your # and leave.
