[quote:Fred 24737670:MV8yMDEyMjEzXzMzODI5NDU2X0MxQzhDRENC] This is why I find the opposition to solar and electric cars so odd. Why pay terrorists and dictators with money and the blood of our youth, when we can produce all the energy we need off a patch of desert the size of a moderate city? [/quote]
Five months before September 11 2001, the US advocated using force against Iraq Ö to secure control of its oil.
The Afghanistan war was planned before 9/11

According to French intelligence officers, the U.S. wanted to run an oil pipeline through Afghanistan to transport Central Asian oil more easily and cheaply. And so the U.S. told the Taliban shortly before 9/11 that they would either get ďa carpet of gold or a carpet of bombsĒ, the former if they greenlighted the pipeline, the second if they didnít.
Congressman Ed Markey said:
Well, weíre in Libya because of oil.
Senator Graham agreed.
And the U.S. and UK overthrew the democratically-elected leader of Iran because he announced that he would nationalize the oil industry in that country.
Itís a War for GAS
But itís about gas as much as oil
As key war architect John Bolton said last year:
The critical oil and natural gas producing region that we fought so many wars to try and protect our economy from the adverse impact of losing that supply or having it available only at very high prices.
For example, the pipeline which the U.S. wanted to run through Afghanistan prior to 9/11 was to transport gas as much as oil.
