    So why do we continue to try. I know Oil is the main reason . We as a country need to provide for ourselves. We have enough oil here , the gulf of mexico and with Canada we will should have enough to sustain ourselves. Let the middle east have their counties. We pull out do not provide aid for them since they all hate us and let them fight among themselves. Provide support for Israel because no one in the region will help them but us. Let the Arab nations have their land. Their Sharia Law and none of our money or our need for their oil and see how long they can last.:eusa_whistle:

    We are in the region to protect our assets, most specificially the oil. I do agree we need to start looking for our oil in other places, Canada would be good and the new country of South Sudan has oil, we can get them up and running and do business with them instead of these countries that hate us and wouldn't piss on us if we were on fire.

    It gives the Secretary of State purpose.

    Oil is not the main reason for the regions unrest.
    Oil is the reason we are there.

    You leave, your influence will be replaced.
    This region has existed long before the Brits/French and their successor the US came.

    You live in a dream-world, if you think Oil is going to become irrelevant for world-economy anytime soon. And even if it would, natural gas consumption is exploding exponentially over the world.
    And if "transition" to renewable-energy is achieved, than natural-gas fired power-plants are the most environment-friendly and cheapest combination to balance the problems which come with renewable energy. Natural gas power-plants can be run on-demand if there is a drought (water-power) or there is night (solar-power).

    No one said oil is going to become irrelevant anytime soon but there are other places to get oil besides the Middle East, I would suggest working on finding other sources for our oil and just cutting our ties with the region to be honest.

    Cheapest Oil is in Middle-East when it comes to production costs.
    With rising Oil prices the production in other areas of the world (especially off-shore) become economically more viable. But it doesn't change anything that other powers will try to "compete" for "control" of the cheapest Oil-source on the planet.
    If the USA departs from this game even better for those powers.

    You are correct which is why we won't be leaving there anytime soon.
