The United States has a long history of protecting its access to oil supplies from the Middle East. In fact it has been concrete policy by every American president since the early Twentieth Century, even the hapless and weak Jimmy Carter, to protect, by military force if necessary, the oil that keeps the U.S. economy humming. The U.S. today keeps a sizable strike force in the Persian Gulf and Mediterranean with the explicit purpose of keeping oil routes safe. Keep this in mind when you hear the "No blood for oil" mantras of the anti-American Left. Any president that doesn't keep America's supply of oil safe from our adversaries should be impeached.
