    Not really, there are many reasons why they hate the west, and a presence for purchasing oil is pretty far down the list.

    The rest of your post is meaningless. You solved nothing regarding terrorist attacking us. Do you not know these terrorist have an ideology that has noting to do with our use of oil or any other supply of our energy. This thread has nothing to do with our clean air act. Nothing.

    Re: Back to Iraq?

    For all the bluster coming from a certain side of the aisle, I don't notice a rush to have a vote from either the House or Senate. As for relying on Mideast oil, I'd like to hear estimates of how soon we can be free of that monster .

    I would say stealing their oil at rock-bottom prices is more like it--there's a reason WW2 had a North African theatre also. And then there was that thing about dissolving Palestine .

    Im fairly certain we buy their oil, along with much of the world. And there are plenty of states that export no oil, who also dont like the US.

    Its more an arab thing, than an oil thing.

    It's a combination war/oil thing, as we saw in the 1973 Arab/Israeli War. I know you've studied on this since you weren't born yet. We support Israel, the Arabs hate Israel, and now the Arabs are hating on each other. Let's see what happens to oil when the ISIL blow up Iraqi refineries

    Oh really, how did we fund the ideology to kill the West. More how does us using oil wanting terrorist to kill us. You're ideology is naive to think if we stop using foreign oil terrorist will stop terrorist to attack us. To solve that problem how about drilling oil on our own land to be independent from foreign oil. But of course that is not the liberal way as you are against any drilling of oil in this country and further you are against the Canadian pipeline. The fact is you don't care about terrorist but want us to go clean energy. That is your only solution to terrorist ideology not wanting to kill us. Gee if you're solution to ward off terrorist that hate us for our values is not to use oil. Really You have to be kidding me.
