    It's more efficient to make business deals than conquering whole nations. Better yet, rather than fight expensive wars for resources, use current developing technology to not need those resources in the first place, and create tons of badly needed American jobs to boot.
    Why should I keep up with hired liars whose assignment is to keep us down? Paying extortionist prices to OPEC has cost us far more than defeating their 3d World armies would cost. The pipe dreams of the Green jihad can't compete with the quick takeover of Muslim oil pipelines. In fact, we'll never be able to finance alternative-energy research as long as OPEC is draining our wealth. We've been tricked by this mantra of waiting for science-fiction fuels since 1973. Since oil is only worth about $5 a barrel, our whole national debt would be non-existent if we had immediately used our military to punish price-gougers when this economic jihad first started.

    Hey, richboys! Imagine the boot of democracy stomping on your faces, forever.

    Twenty to thirty times what it cost them. In order to cover up their own extortion, the Texxon peckerwoods created the OPECkers' cartel so they could blame foreigners for our economic problems. They are of the same ilk as the Bankensteins on Wall Street. The government bails them out too, by starting wars to protect their Arab allies. These real-life J.R Ewings are nothing but Saudis in Stetsons.

    We don't belong to OPEC and most of our foreign imports are from non-OPEC nations.

    Venezuela and Iran were the first countries to move towards the establishment of OPEC in the 1960s by approaching Iraq, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia in 1949, suggesting that they exchange views and explore avenues for regular and closer communication among petroleum-producing nations.[citation needed] The founding members are Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela. Later members include Algeria, Ecuador, Gabon, Indonesia, Libya, Qatar, Nigeria, and the United Arab Emirates.

    Our OWN oil doesn't flow from the ground right to the pumps, but must be shipped to refineries where it is processed into usable forms. Not all of it is sweet light crude, which by itself takes significant processing. We have our share of bitter heavy crude which takes much longer to process.

    There's been "talk" about alternative fuels for a long time, but very little "doing." Only recently is anyone "doing" anything about it. We haven't been "trying" at all until recently when the price of oil is becoming untenable. Now we are "trying" and what you are suggesting would only "delay trying" just like people who had other excuses since 1973. It hasn't been so much a lack of technology, it's been a lack of willpower to "try," that has failed to produce a result.
