    Because of new oil extraction techniques, the U.S. has the largest oil/natural gas reserves IN THE WORLD. Of course we can't drill for it because it is on Federal land, BUT WE HAVE IT! Is it any wonder that more and more of the world thinks we are idiots?

    If you think about it, in a way it's kind of funny. Viet Nam/The United States explore for oil in international waters, find a location, and before they can put a rig at the location to start drilling, the Chinese put their rig there first.

    Much of the contested area, particularly the Gulf of Tonkin is only around 70-meters deep.
    No sub commander in his right mind would want to operate in waters so shallow.

    I don't agree that we should develop our own oil reserves... not yet anyway. Our plan seems to be to use up the rest of the world's oil first. Once the rest of the world runs dry, we can tap ours and have something to sell at much higher prices.

    Gotta make it that far first and then be able to hang out to it as the other countries economies starve to death. Not that its not a bad plan i just dont think we can do it at current.

    Vietnam and China have clashed militarily for thousands of years.
    Vietnam has never lost.
    I'd rather be Vietnam's friend than enemy.
