As I sit here in my office I can hear rolling thunder in the distance. The dark clouds are not too far away, hopefully bringing much needed rain to the area. Southeast Texas, where I live has been in a drought for several months.
There is another storm brewing in the distance. This storm is over ideology and resources.
Ask yourself, why has the United States only gone into conflicts that involved oil producing nations? It is not that we are lacking resources, the conflicts are to seize control of those resources.
