And if Russia wants to stay and support Assad, that’s fine with me, Assad is the best of all the bad alternatives there. At least Assad is not executing Christians. And he is not plotting attacks on the West in his spare time.

Why? They’d be striking his rebel buddies.

So we should engage in wars just to keep the price of oil down? Better to drill here, and turn our backs on foreign oil.
What targets were hit?

Unfortunately in the context of the system that’s been constructed it goes way beyond just keeping the price of oil down.
If the petrodollar ceases to be the requisite currency for oil trade (OPEC) - the price of EVERYTHING in the economic scope of the dollar will be affected... and guess what that means for American consumers at, among other places, the grocery store.
Better to continue what Nixon started before the miscreants riding the military industrial jackwagon hijacked the Republic.
