    Here's an interesting question - how many Europeans do you think either have, or are currently training under, fighting with, or traveling to meet ISIL, ANF, and like groups?

    How's that keystone pipeline approval process coming? The administration still planning on shutting down the coal industry? What about fracking - lots of allies in our current political leadership?


    Gosh, sure would be nice to have the infrastructure up there to easily produce and utilize all the energy produced on the north american continent in the north american continent, eh?

    Oh really, then to stop all us from buying oil from who you think we are funding then we need to drill on our own land and be independent of foreign oil. But that is not want you really want to do. You're only goal is to go totally green and you use the excuse that we use oil and that is the only reason for terrorist attack. What BS

    Multiple sources, and oil money is just a fraction of that.

    I had family that fought in that conflict, and Arabs hating on Arabs is nothing new. The continued infighting about seemingly arcane differences between the major branches of islam is an example. Of course, these Islamists hate everyone else as well.

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.
    I've NEVER read any of those charges "you" made at the "poster" you quoted--engaging in the "you liberals" card. It's a wonder any of "them" even bother engaging with those of "you" who toss out these B.I.L.s .

    Well then why don't you engage in the fact that those that have posted that we not not buy foreign oil will stop terrorism against the US. I await your response.

    if we were to transition from oil as a transportation fuel, then a lot fewer of our dollars would go to those who seek to funnel money to extremists.
