In news today one of the big headlines on DrudgeReport is “Iran Cuts Oil To UK, France”. At first glance, it looks like a severe measure taken by a nation that is constantly in the news demonizing and threatening other nations around the globe, particularly our own and our long-time ally, Israel. But what about this…

What if we let them stick a cork right in their Strait of Hormuz, as they keep threatening to do, and just say “fine”.

What if America said, “Okie-dokie. Don’t really need you and we also don’t appreciate your hate-mongering. We can refine our own resources. Good luck financing the nuclear projects we and other countries you export oil to are paying for.”

Two things wrong with that approach. The first, we currently have a president who has little interest in America relying on itself for its own natural resources. His alternative energy companies he invested in with our tax dollars are going belly-up monthly (I think it was four in the past one or two months) and his decision to turn down the Keystone pipeline speaks for itself. And, secondly, that is way to simple of a solution. Decisions need to make as little sense as possible to at least fifty-percent of our nation in order to pass in Washington.

Here is why Iran’s decision to cut oil to UK and France is hardly newsworthy. In a story from Reuters, “The European Union in January decided to stop importing crude from Iran from July 1 over its disputed nuclear program, which the West says is aimed at building bombs. Iran denies this.”

Iran chose to cut off UK and France but the entire European Union was planning to cut Iran off in July. Iran has been in the process of getting phased out due to their controversial nuclear research and they simply cut the cord early out of spite. EU’s sanctions on Iran far exceed the U.N.’s including a ban on dealing with Iranian banks and insurance companies.

Why isn’t America leading this effort with the most extreme sanctions and bans? Our largest obstacle is a president who has so little interest in domestic oil and so much in failed green companies.

427.9 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day174.
