    He should support the Japanese and Norwegians as they deal with the attacks on their tankers.

    It may be cheaper for us to buy from SA than it is to produce our own.

    It may be that we export just enough to keep our Oil Workers employed. If we shut down Oil Exploration and production, then need to crank it up real quick (War, Embargo, whatev) we could be in a jam.

    We may be doing some smaller Countries a favor by exporting Oil to them.

    There are many reasons. Many. Some of them excellent reason, some them -- Not so much. But overall, we've finally gotten over the juvenile, infantile conservatism of the past.

    Energy IS civilization. Go without electricity and a Car for a Month. Go through Hurricane Irma, like I did and you'll appreciate energy more than ever.

    I trust businessmen more than I trust politicians.

    I trust businessmen to be greedy and self-serving. But they are more easily easily controlled than......

    ...politicians, who are greedy, power-mad, thoughtless dirtbag demagogues who couldn't organize a one-car-funeral.

    And they are not-so-easily controlled.

    When all else fails, lie huh?

    Which your post was. A lie. Not a simple lie. A GODDAMNED LIE. An ignorant lie. A stupid lie.

    You just talk shit and, like all dims, you do it with somewhere around ZERO knowledge of the topic.

    We spend an extraordinary amount of tax payer money on defense in the middle east, not to mention the lives of Americans, for that Saudi Oil....

    Why would we do that, when we have enough oil to be self sufficient, by using/buying our own oil and the oil of allies such as Canada and Mexico, INSTEAD OF Saudi Arabia's or Iraq's or whatever middle eastern country we import from?

    Sanctions. They work.

    But dims don't keep up with the real News. All they do is talk shit.

    Shit from DailyKooks or dummyunderground or some other juvenile bullshit site.

    Trump backed out of the deal so he COULD stop them.

    It's working.

    You're getting on my nerves. I ALREADY told you that we still use more than we produce and you go right back to "if we're self-sufficient'' when I told we're not totally. Especially at the cost of SA Oil

    You don't want to discuss, you want to argue.

    Go away

    Perhaps the oil business isn't quite so difficult to explain as Redfish would have us think. At least I found this helpful, a bit. It might be presented from the oil companies' perspective--I couldn't really find anything about who they are. But it explain things.
