Energy Independence? Perhaps.
Posted January 29, 2011on:
I am watching the happenings in the Middle East very closely for one reason: this may be the event that will force our government to finally allow the United States to use our own energy resources and become energy independent. The day of the United States, or any other country for that matter, controlling the Middle East is long over. First the West controlled the Middle East by taking them over, then the West bought them off and backed the tyrants who were in power all for oil. That day is gone because the people are now aware of the rest of the world: the nasty voice of the people again called the Internet! We can no longer own, buy, back or beg, borrow and steal their oil. We will have to deal for it and the dealing will not be to our liking. The dealing will most likely be with a Muslim leadership. If the United States is to survive then we must rely on our own resources. We have enough oil and coal to carry us into the next century when I feel sure our advances in knowledge will have advanced to the point of giving us a stable alternate source of energy.
This may bee one of the most important historic turning points in history. Interesting. BB
