Harper to U.S.: don’t forget who has the oil
This is precisely why spending $3 trillion on a war to keep us on this energy source is making us weaker, not stronger. The U.S. simply doesn't have the oil in the world. By staying dependent on it, we are making other nations richer, and making us subservient to their demands. If $3 trillion had been spent internally, to get us off this dependence, we'd be a stronger, more self-reliant nation.
