None of them is a friendly democracy, and the only place left to buy oil from would be Alaska. They would keep suppressing, torturing and killing their own people with or without us. I see the root cause in the Balfour declaration and the unkept promises that preceded it. When it comes to US dependence on oil, a comical footnote,: There is an extra tax on Ethanol from Brazil to protect US farm interest, but no such tax is levied on imported oil. Europe is happy about it. They buy all the Brazilian ethanol they can get.
