So, is the answer for the West to quickly develop fuel altenatives to not only cut our dependency on foreign oil, but to also pull the rug out from under their claim of exploitation?

Good article Bot.

I doubt if anybody on the planet thinks fuel prices are ever going to decline significantly. If they do, it wont be for long.

Where is the price-break that makes alternatives competitive? I don't know but I hope it isn't much higher.

Try this:-

Let's assume the MAX, which is total B.S., but even so that amounts to 1,495 deaths per day and 62.3 deaths per hour. We lost over 3,000 people in less than one hour. Now that, my friend, is "gravitas!"

Don't believe everything you think

Isn't he the one who invented the internet?

Something about "Swift Boat Veterans for the Internet?"

Or am I confusing two different issues here
