I understand your point on this and many people share your view, and so do i to a degree, but I also think about all the idiots we have made rich enough to think they are gods to the point of terrorizing the rest of the western world and financing that terror with the money we give them for that oil, we pay them big money so they can start trouble then we send our young men & women over there so they can kill them, without their oil we would be just fine but without our money they would be camel ranchers & farmers of some type and would not be a threat to our way of life and the future of our kids and grandkids.
We have unintentionally given them the power to destroy our way of life and wreck our economy if we're not real careful.
Just my thoughts on this matter, I'm not a hater but I hate what I see happening to my country for the sake of this oil we actually dont need from them, once again it's all about money and the people pulling all the strings dont give a rats butt about our future they just care about lining their own pocket and then what ever happens just happens as long as they get what they want, we are digging our own grave by supporting these people, their belief system and values are nothing like ours and ours are what made us the greatest nation in the history of the world not theirs, they've been doing the same thing for 1000's of years with very little progress then the west comes along and makes them rich and how do they repay us, Jihad or supporters of it.........
Just my opinions nothing more nothing less.....

sucks for the time being, but long term i don't think it's a bad thing.
