Well things are out of control in the Middle East. This time it is Libya, which has proven, at least thus far, to be the bloodiest of the "revolutions" that have and will sweep the region. It is now high time that good Colonel be displaced, probably by any means necessary. It would be a very tricky thing to get involved militarily in that region though and perhaps it should not be done so at this time for the sole purpose of ousting Gaddafi (Khaddify, Quadaffi, Whatever). The time may well come that military intervention is necessary in the Middle East for a purpose much more important than promoting democracy, (which is the pipe dream of fools anyway). That more important reason for intervention would be to secure our energy supply. For this Hellish scenario one must thank those among us who have been standing in the way of becoming energy self sufficient. It is long past time to secure our own energy supply by beginning an aggressive exploration and drilling program frankly regardless of any short term adverse environmental impact. Even beginning tomorrow I fear is to late to do any real good. What about alternative energy? Research, explore or do whatever, but do not throw the baby out with the bathwater. That baby is oil.
I must say that those who have hampered and perhaps hamstrung our nation by their obstinacy on becoming energy independent are traitors of the worst kind. There is really no room here for discussion. If one willfully damages our nation, which the anti energy crowd has willfully done, then they have committed treason and perhaps may be the architects of calamity. This is an issue that is non debatable. It is not mere politics to damage one's nation. It is treason. The radical environmentalist crowd may well cost American lives.
