In the past, largely in part to the United States' dependency on imported oil from troubled areas throughout the world, our nation has been drawn into conflicts because of our energy needs.Its should give all of us some great relief that future presidents will not have deal with petro-politics
so directly. For instance, oil producing nations relied almost exclusively on the US for protection. Their turmoils whip sawed the price of gasoline at the pump. Well it is very refreshing to be in a position to let the oil producing nations do the fighting to resolve their own quite twisted differences. And so I am extremely happy that the US can be in the background instead of having to be in the foreground of the latest war on the Arabian Peninsula. Go USA!
