    If we did it right, we wouldn't need a drop from the Middle East. But we wouldn't want to disrupt the mating habit of the caribou or get in the way of all the other countries drilling in our gulf.

    What do you think an invasion doe to a country. Make it a utopian paradise, where unicorns are abundant, peace and love abound.

    It causes havoc, chaos, especially when the people of the invaded country decide to fight back against the invasion, and seek to become the dominate group when the dust settles. That and disbanding the Iraqi armed forces after then invasion didnt help with preventing the havoc.

    and yes the US did shoot Iraqis, and bomb them and kill a fair number of them

    There is not enough oil in Alaska to make the US energy independant, nor oil in the dakotas. The US might have enough oil far off shore (deep water) but has not found the reserves yet. The US has two sources of energy that are in abundance (other then coal) shale gas and oil shale. Oil shale is not currently economically viable, while shale gas is. Shale gas is one reason for the very cheap price of natural gas currently. Conveting it to liquified gasonline products is most likely not economically viable at this moment in time, but might be in the future.

    Geologists have determined, at present US oil consumption rates, there is only enough oil in ANWR to last us about 1 year, and that is if 100% of the oil went to the US rather than the world market which is the usual way the oil companies do business.

    If shale oil becomes economically viable (which it might if the Suez Canal is compromised at some point) we have a virtually endless supply sitting underneath the Rocky Mountains.

    We're the only country in the world that refuses to use its own resources. The world laughs at us for this.

    There was no insurgency initially. The people did decide to fight back, but they not only fought us, they killed innocent Iraqis by the thousands. They also sought sectarian violence and started a civil war. The blood is on their hands, predominantly, not ours. So statements such that we killed tens of thousands of Iraqis is complete bull****.

    With support from the US!

    "The provision of chemical precursors from United States companies to Iraq was enabled by a Ronald Reagan administration policy that removed Iraq from the State Department's list of State Sponsors of Terrorism."
    U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix faults Bush Administration for lack of "critical thinking" in Iraq

    "Washington, D.C., 25 February 2003 - The National Security Archive at George Washington University today published on the Web a series of declassified U.S. documents detailing the U.S. embrace of Saddam Hussein in the early 1980's, including the renewal of diplomatic relations that had been suspended since 1967. The documents show that during this period of renewed U.S. support for Saddam, he had invaded his neighbor (Iran), had long-range nuclear aspirations that would "probably" include "an eventual nuclear weapon capability," harbored known terrorists in Baghdad, abused the human rights of his citizens, and possessed and used chemical weapons on Iranians and his own people. The U.S. response was to renew ties, to provide intelligence and aid to ensure Iraq would not be defeated by Iran, and to send a high-level presidential envoy named Donald Rumsfeld to shake hands with Saddam (20 December 1983)."
