Tells of our relationship with SA going back to the 1930s

2. I never understood our nation's coziness with the Saudis

After September 11th our nation should have given the entire region a collective middle finger and completely removed ourselves from involvement there. Instead of squandering trillions of dollars in our military adventures and propping up regimes such as the Saudi's, we should have invested that money in renewable energy here at home and left the region to sort its own mess out.

We could tell all the nations in the region "keep your damn oil, we don't need it and you aren't getting anymore support from us."

3. The oil lobbyist here want us dependent on oil that's why we are. There had been the means of

transportation with oil for a long time. It's the rich running Washington. We have not needed oil for years, but they just keep pushing it because it's how they make their money

Dow Chemical, Chevron, ExxonMobil.
