I don't get it.
Why are you people in here talking this point to death still?

Isn't it a moot point now that we are creating our own evolution? I think the more important question that most scientists fail to ask themselves and answer is should we do it?!

Likewise. Since you are not English, English language is still not your strong suit.
Celtic English is strange to English English. It is vernacullar.

<quoted text>yes, but since they make up less than 1/20th of our oil use, you claim that most of the raw materials used for the development of the US doesn't even come close in this particular raw material, does it? not even close...
not only has it been disproven that MOST of the Raw mkaterials used to build the US came from Africa, you have yet to find even ONE category in which that is true. not even one. not one.
your big flappy mouth wrote a check you brain, and the facts, couldn't cash.
The US is a nation rich in many natural resources, but Africa is a continent that contributed to the development of US and more to Europe.
Now answer my question, why do you import oils instead of exporting, when you have it in abundance?

You are the one that needs proper education on linguistics.
All languages have one or more influences from other languages, English is not the only language with that form, Latin, Greek, French, German, etc, are also part of that.
Germanic language is not German, but includes English, German, Dutch, Danish, etc.

That is called being smart. When others run out we will still have reserves.

So, English is not owned by England.

What makes you think that the US doesn't export oil? In fact in 2010, we exported more oil than we imported.

Depending upon the global price of oil, and amount of domestic usage, sometimes it's more profitable to buy foreign oil, and export domestic oil, other times, vice versa.

Lets face reality, are your oils more marketable than that of Africa and Middle East?

Yes and stupidity belongs to you. I guess the French own all french kisses and french fries. Only Dutch people can go Dutch, Mexico owns all Mexican restaurants. The Spanish own a flu and a fly. Morse owns a code and the Scot's own free. Duck's own tape unless it's cheap tape then it belongs to Scotch. You don't have to guess who owns Brandy. I can only guess you used to live under London bridge, and when it fell , it hit you on your big ole doofus head.

Yes. Lets DO face reality.

I provided evidence that the US in fact DOES export oil.

No twisting of the facts. We DO EXPORT OIL.

Deal with it.
