As far as Israel is concerned you're not telling me something I don't already know. Israel's military is the most efficient military in the world. The US has the most powerful military but it is grossly inefficient. The huge costs notwithstanding, campaigns are prolonged and collateral damage is too extensive. You're swatting flies with sledgehammers.

Talk radio "conservatives" really need to get their talking-points to align with TRUE conservative principles, because right now they clash. This drill-here-drill-now mantra only works in a SOCIALIZED society.

I'm not disputing the amount of oil that is under your soil. It is indeed abundant, but PRIVATE companies are in control of that industry. It's not nationalized. They're in the business of making as much money as they can possibly make - that is selling what they already produce at world spot prices. They have no interest in selling cheap oil to Americans. That is free market principles. So, unless the US pulls off some kind of socialized move like Chavez did with Venezuela and take control of their domestic oil industry, nothing will change.

    Israel isn't just a country, or a race - it's both, and then some. And about half of her actual population lives in the United States. We have enough oil here in the United States to supply all of... more
