As oil prices surge, Trump says he has ordered use of emergency supplies

President Donald J. Trump has approved the use of the US emergency oil supply after prices rose as much as 18 percent following air strikes on Saudi oil facilities


Yes, keep using up the world entire oil supply. I mean, it’s not like an oil war is what caused the collapse of society in Mad Max or anything. If we’re on the trend of bringing dystopian fantasies into reality like has already been done with Orwell’s 1984, we might as well make sure the last gasp leads to vehicular gladiatorial combat.

But being serious, why not at least TRY alternative fuel sources? We’re killing the planet with fossil fuels and if you think a global shortage won’t lead to further war then you’re insane. Seeing as his party loves profiting off of foreign conflicts I wouldn’t doubt this was all part of the plan. Crisis precipitates change.

Now Donald Trump has tweeted that "the US is locked and loaded to respond to whomever attacked the Saudi oil fields in whatever way the Kingdom deems necessary."

So let me get this straight . . . Someone attacks a country who directly helped with the 9/11 attacks, and a country we are not allies with, gets attacked, and the US is going to attack another country because of it??? That's absolutely ridiculous and Congress needs to find a way to put a stop to it.
Besides, this administration is saying that will cause us to have to dip into our oil reserves, but if that's the case, how can they spout all the time about the US being completely energy independent??
