    Are you talking about Nationalizing US oil and withdrawing from the world market??? How would we make up the difference for the 60% of oil that we consume beyond our production capability???

    You are aware that Canada imports more oil than they export, right?

    We should end the sanctions.Not because of some oil nonsense but because sanctions do not hurt those in power.Those who live high off the hog will not starve and I doubt they would lift a finger to help those on the bottom.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    the sanctions are not doing anything to stop the nuclear program, why keep them in place?

    Sanctions are actually an act of war. It's one of the reasons why Japan attacked the US. Sanctions are only hurting the poorest Iranians, the well-off are doing just fine. It's stupid, really.

    i don't support ending the sanctions to lower gas prices.

    i support ending the sanctions because they only hurt the people of Iran.

    replacing oil as our primary transportation fuel is the only policy that will yield results.

    That will result in disaster. The road of good intentions is littered with the corpses of millions.

    If oil goes away it means people stop buying it. Why would people stop buying it? Too much money. Why would it cost too much money? If the supply dwindled, or if government somehow came in and banned it. That would be a disaster.

    If you ogt rid of oil then the alternative has to be at a reasonable price, or else we will go back to wagons. Oil should be fully exploited in order to provide an abundance of it at a very cheap price. This benefits everyone, especially the poor at the pump

    Re: Obama should end Iranian Sanctions to Reduce Oil Prices

    i think the government should do absolutely nothing to discourage the use of oil.

    instead, innovating a replacement fuel / transportation model and upgrading our electrical grid with emphasis on nuclear and renewable energy should be made a top tier national priority.

    NO!...the alternative is warfare...seems to me a bit less pleasant than a couple bucks a week. I really don't want any more dead people.


    By the way...Obama does not decide wht the EU does...but I'msure you have some reasoning behind this opinion.

    Re: Obama should end Iranian Sanctions to Reduce Oil Prices

    Ending the sanctions only increases the likelihood that Israel attacks Iran on its own. So in a way, Obama is already taking the course of action that will have the least impact on oil prices. That said, I dont think there is any guarantee that sanctions wont actually propel Iran into hostile action.
