OPEC and Persian Gulf nations only produce about half the worlds 75 million barrels of oil a day. The US (and Canada) has plenty of its own oil and gas, the only issue is economics, much of it is sour, in oil sands, or otherwise expensive to access.
Do you think anyone really likes paying someone else for something they have locally? Of course, you can always make that resource local to you... the British did heaps of that in their golden age of sea power. The US by comparison is friendly to other states that have what it feels it needs and can't seem to live without.

so invading a country and killing many of it's people is friendly compared to invading a country and killing many of it's people?
and comparisions to the colonies isn't really valid. i mean it was a while ago. we could refuse to trade with white americans, just because they persecuted native americans. however, we don't, as it was a while ago.

It just goes to show that the real "thing" behind ALL of this, and I mean EVERYTHING that's going on in the world today is rooted in OIL and MONEY.
...I think, but then again all I know is how to blow things up (how American of me )

Them buildings two of them fell so perfectly which normaly takes controlled demolition it just seems a load of bull.
I think it was supposed to be something to do with the trusses that held the floors up, the building was basically a hollow frame and beams called trusses were put in between to hold the floor to the sides of the building. It also had a core where the lifts and stairs were, then when the fires started after the planes hit it started weakening the trusses so that when one gave way, the weight of it landing on the next was enough to bring that down too, so it fell in on its self which would explain why it didnt go sideways. I saw this on a documentary a year or 2 ago.
Not sure about conspiracy theories though... Think I will leave that up to other people to decide I dont want to cause an argument!
