Do you remember the board game Risk? I always thought it was a governmental strategy to capture land mass with that comes their natural resources. Certainly has been known especially during WWI & II that capturing their oil supply was a major objective. Was it worth it than? Yes. Is it worth it now? What really is our policy in the Middle East. I don't think we have one and to think of all the young men and women that have lost their lives for oil. I will bet it will be in vain for the mind set of this administration. We are either into something for oil or humanitarian reasons and each plays off each other and we are losing on both front's. Let's dig ourselves further in the hole listening to these alternative fuel people.
