Having to spend billions to defense to defend the likes of the Saudis, just to ensure the free flow of oil, when we have enough here to supply us and our allies, is insane.
Our top national security priority should be to have total energy independence.
Time for us to withdraw from the Middle East. We need to get the Canadian pipeline built and frack and drill some more but were well on the way to energy independence. Let the Yurps and China pay the price in blood and treasure to keep middle eastern oil flowing.
