The US gets most of it's oil from Canada.<quoted text>
No need to go to Saudi Arabia. The Saudi oil lobby has already bought and paid for both the Democrats and Republicans in Washington. It is no surprise that the radical Saudi monarchy's enemies in the Middle East are targeted and toppled one by one.
From Hussein to Assad to Ahmedinejad...
See a dark conspiracy there?
Oil is a commodity. Somebody wants to sell it. Somebody else want to buy it. A simple business deal.
Europe is FAR more dependent upon Mideastern and North African oil than the USA.
By the middle of the next decade (an possibly sooner) the US will not need to purchase oil from the mideast.
