So you’ll happily let Gazprom and Sinopec replace ExxonMobil and ChevronTexaco in Saudi Arabia.

You might have no problem with that, but the power brokers in America wont.

America is a trading nation, understand that. The last time you could comfortably shut out the rest of the World and live happily was 1946.

Oil is fungible, and it doesn’t matter were you drill it from, if the Saudi’s manipulate the prices - it affects everyone.

So what?

Oil is fungible. and there is supply and demand to consider.

Once we are allowed to get to the resources over here, this will have a significant impact on the global marketplace.

And yes, the US is a trading nation. Better to trade from a position of strength than a position of weakness.
