Energy and the War on Terrorists

January 8, 2009

The events in Gaza and the Ukraine this week highlight the relationship between oil and the war on terror.

T. Boone Pickens does a good job of describing that relationship in an “Oil Price Wars” email he sent to Pickens Plan members today. If you haven’t been to his site and read the plan, you need to. It’s not just about wind energy–it’s about ending our dependency on Middle East oil.

If you were fighting for your life and you had a weapon to use, would you use it? Of course you would. Radical Islam thinks it is fighting for its life and is even willing use its members to blow themselves up to achieve their goals. Why would they not use our dependency on their oil? They will and they have.

Gas got down to $1.39 in Colorado the other day; it’s on the way back up. At the same time, the Democratic governor and state legislature passed a bill to make new exploration and drilling almost impossible. Who are they working for: us or Al Qaeda?

Consider that every time you fill your gas tank, 70% of the money is going to people who hate us. Do you think the Washington Democrats are going to do anything different than the Colorado Democrats?
