I really just wanna get our own oil tell the hippies to shut it and leave this whole freaking part of the world to the isrealis. Love to see the oil lillionairs lose everything.

egypt and pakistan are also about retaining a balance of power in the region... these people have no love for us and they have no reason to so to expect loyalty from them outside (and even inside) of our "arrangements" is a bit over the top... We go behind their backs, they go behind ours. I'm not saying I like it and egypt is shifting and it's going to be interesting to see what happens...

Unfortunately, pakistan has nukes and is one of the craziest f*cking countries in the world so... that situation can really only get worse.

As far as oil goes, my understanding is that we can't really get our own oil unless we nationalize the industry which everyone would have a poo-fit over. Oil is fungible... there really isn't any way to only use american oil without dramatically changing the infrastructure (and even then i'm not sure it's possible.)

I'm sure someone smarter than me can expand on this further.

yeah they are and it keeps getting worse and worse. Some new things out that include: 1 Eygpts Top state department officail refused to let US MArines on US soil (the embassy) carry live rounds. Thats right folks our jarheads were not incompetent (which would have blown my mind if true) instead the state department told them to point their guns at the protesters and say bang bang bang.

2 In lybia the bodies were missing for 12 hours and they dint die quick. Reports state they were freaking SODOMIZED.

3 The state department issed an all clear stand down threat level 5 days before citing "no threat" on 9/11

(So Eygpt new the protest were going to happen 5 days before but we didnt?)

4 When they were missing in Lybia Obama went to bed.

5 Apparently our pres hasnt been attending the intel breifings for the past week.

4&5 havent been confirmed by 2 scources yet so I pray that is not true. Wait 24 -48 on those and we should get more info on em. So there I just saved you from having to watch the media tonight. Do i get paid for this?+

It was our Ambassador to Egypt that would not allow the Marines to have live ammo.

idk about that sodomy report, I hope that's not true.

Also idk about the SD issuing an all clear... if true, I don't see how that makes any sense... security should automatically be higher on 9/11.

Meh... could be any # of reasons for this... if there wasn't anything going on, I can see him going to bed with orders to be awakened if something came up.

Not attending briefings could be a problem... depends on the reason. I would think that's pretty much one of the president's main jobs, to stay apprised of what's going on around the world and be ready to act and make decisions.

Of course a lot of that could be pure speculation, and like you said, unless there is complete confirmation, hard to say what's true...

Here's links about the ammo thing... no idea how legit these sites are, never heard of them... they do appear right leaning.

She did not permit US Marine guards to carry live ammunition, according to USMC blogs. Thus she neutralized any US military capability that was dedicated to preserve her life and protect the US Embassy.

eeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Kinda last i saw was that it was that we would have to redo all the transport routes to our existing reefineries and do a rework of the transport routes to get the amounts out but if you combined that with the keystone pipeline you could get the oil indepence (not sustanability) in 8 years. To get out of the me you would have to do keystone anwar and a massive investment in South America. Oh and build about 10 more refineries. You would also have to deal with green peace and their legal guys fighting every inch of the way.

So yeah allost impossable.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me that is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can't get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
