The American Oil-Exploitation Congress (APEC) is so busy dodging the fuel/energy issue it can't be bothered to realize that our dependence on middle-eastern oil is a serious threat to national security. Any whim of the non-western world to screw around with our economy by diddling the oil price cannot be resisted. And yet we sit on the largest reserves on the globe. Doing nothing - by order of our federal policy makers.
The solution is blindingly obvious, yet in a movement of sudden mass stupidity, Congress fails to take any meaningful action at all.
