    Then why would 80% of Vietnamese have voted for Ho Chi Minh if we had actually let them practice democracy?

    And they cut back drilling to push prices higher. High prices will naturally lead to increased drilling and when prices drop they will cut back production. Oil companies don't like surpluses.
    Believe it or not oil companies like high prices. They are in the business to make money not supply us with cheap gas.

    The South Vietnamese government was one of the most corrupt on earth and the French and US helped create it.

    Because he was the only one running, perhaps? Whatcha think?

    I doubt with all the murders that he ordered, over the years, that he could get 80% of the vote, unless he was the only candidate.

    After he was elected, nearly a million Vietnamese immigrated south, not a good sign.

    BTW, the election held in North Vietnam, only.

    The South Vietnamese could have migrated north, yet the opposite took place.

    What about the innocent civillians that may be killed in such a strike? I mean you hold US troops responsible, why are you willing to send them to kill in this instance?

    No, they cut back production to raise prices. Production and drilling are two different animals.

    Drilling a well costs money. The oil companies have to see a return on the money they spent drilling that well. You understand how that works, right?

    That was due to the fact that many of thosewho stayed in the South were catholic and wanted to avoid religious persecution (Ngo was a very devout catholic)

    I know and an increase in drilling now will do nothing to effect current prices or make up for Libyan oil.
    When prices are low drilling is curtailed. When prices are high excess profits are used to increase drilling.
    Oil companies do not increase drilling to reduce prices. That's what you guys seem to ignor.
