Blood and Oil

Blood and Oil.

his book, Blood and oil, Michael T. Klare tells us that toward the end
of World War II, FDR made a deal with Saudi Arabia: Saudi Arabia would
keep oil flowing to the States and America would militarily protect
Saudi Arabia – our blood for their oil. This pact has since been
sustained by all American presidents, Democrats and Republicans alike.
Klare says that this unfortunate obssession with oil has been
substantially responsible for many of our wars – including the Iraq
morass. Now that oil supplies are shrinking while oil demand is zooming
we must develop a strategy for living in a post-petroleum world. The
first step is to break the pact of blood for oil  [Democrats & Liberals:]
