    Let’s bomb them and take their oil. That should bring peace to the Middle East.

    ^ More importantly, we’ll corner the market on pistachios, too.

    “The Iranian nation, with its unity and God’s grace, will punch the arrogance [Western powers] on the 22nd of Bahman [Feb. 11] in a way that will leave them stunned,” Ayatollah Khamenei was quoted as saying by Agence France-Presse.

    Ken - we should have taken our OWN oil back in 2001 BEFORE 911 happened, but the vastly minority greenies kept us from ANWR and the Gulf, and from building new refineries. Then, just maybe, history would be entirely different. By the way, we haven’t taken anybody’s oil, we have paid an outrageous price.

    Radish, thanks for the info. We can hope and pray for another failure of their attacks.

    Loco80 said, 25 minutes ago ”Ken - we should have taken our OWN oil back in 2001 BEFORE 911 happened, …Then, just maybe, history would be entirely different.” So it was all about oil?

    By the way, we haven’t taken anybody’s oil, we have paid an outrageous price.

    So it was all about oil but you paid the wrong price?

    omQ R - what you inferred is not what I implied. I was saying that we did not go to war to take anybody’s oil. “Take” means that you pay nothing for it. We could have taken what is ours, but the environmentalists thought that would be “wrong.” Instead, we are buying from foreign lands who want nothing more than to kill us. And they are charging us dearly, to kill us economically if they cannot do it by violence.

    fennec: here’s two of many articles about US reserves:

    from http://www.anwr.org/case.htm

    Studies of the ANWR coastal plain indicate it may contain between 6 and 16 billion barrels of recoverable oil (between 11.6 and 31.5 billion barrels in-place). With enhanced recovery technology, ANWR oil could provide an additional 30 to 50 years of reliable supply. Natural gas, produced with the oil, could be reinjected or added to a new gas pipeline originating in Prudhoe Bay. Petroleum development at Prudhoe Bay has not negatively affected wildlife. For instance, the Central Arctic caribou herd is at home with pipeline facilities and has grown from 3,000 to as high as 27,100 in the last 20 years. Drilling activity in ANWR would be limited to winter months when wildlife does not frequent the coastal plain.

    from the washington post:

    Oil analysts and company executives said newly released test results from a well 175 miles off the coast of Louisiana indicate that the oil industry will be able to recover well more than 3 billion barrels, and perhaps as much as 15 billion barrels, of oil from a geological area known as the lower tertiary trend, making it the biggest addition to U.S. petroleum reserves in decades. The upper end of the estimate could boost U.S. reserves by 50 percent.

    And if the US doesn’t go get it, then China is snooping around Cuba and they will.

    It is not just Alaska that has oil. There are enormous reserves off shore - of both coasts and the Gulf.

    Interestingly, Chinese and Norwegians are drilling in the Gulf and the Atlantic, pretty close to US …

    The Democrats have very effectively castrated the provision of our domestic energy - Carter’s windfall tax, together with phony environmentalism …just to name a few . ..

    d_legendary1: So let’s “drill baby drill” now and while we use our own supplies we develope alternative energy. We CAN create energy (electricity) using nuclear power plants. We CAN develope vehicles and run on electricity. The faster you do that, the more oil is available for things like trains to move consumer goods. We could spend to make every building in the US a solar energy well. BUT we must use the current tech to build the new.

    If you start NOW you have time to accomplish the desired goal.

    D_leg -actually, our biggest supplier currently is Canada.

    Bruce, well spoken.

    And Petergrt,you are right.It really does annoy me that we cannot drill in the Gulf due to Greenie Weenies, but 10 miles away, in Cuba’s territory, China will drill. So, not only will the environment be touched, but then WE can buy that same oil FROM China. Thanks, weenies.

    we’ve got our own oils and the ocean is not snowbound

    @Bruce Its not feasible. First it will take us years to “drill baby drill” since they have to build the oil wells on site. By that time they build it, take the oil out of the ground, refine it, and bring it into the market we could already have converted our vehicles into clean air vehicles.

    @Loco I know that Dr.Canuck is the person to go for a fix. But what happens when the doc runs out of juice? We’ll have to go and get it somewhere else. Face it dude, we’re junkies.

    Israel scares me a lot more than Iran.

    Peter and Loco- they ARE drilling and extracting in the Gulf, and thanks to “manipulation” of leases, they are NOT paying the taxpayer any royalties!!! Most leasable federal lands ARE under lease, but those companies whining about being cut out have been holding those leases for ages with no exploration or drilling. Even the Alaskan National Petroleum Reserve, right next to the ANWR they want to screw up, has barely been touched.

    “Energy” companies have been running a much bigger con than either AIG or Goldman - Sachs, for many more years, and from many more angles. That includes the phony “denier” fraud, as they now are saying it’s true and THEY are the “good guys”. Conning morons is really easy.

    “not feasible”. same thing you hear when people are ready to just give up. If you want to do it you can. But, you really have to want to and Legend I don’t care where the oil comes from you just stay out of the way….got it? :0))
