If you have to import oil from the Saudis, you have to secure the region in any case and that costs money. A lot of money. If you need to secure oil fields in Iraq, that costs money. We're involved in that region despite being a NET EXPORTER. That's the point. We're hardly independent of the middle east despite being a NET EXPORTER. I import 1000 barrels of oil, export 1001. Voila, I'm a NET EXPORTER. EXPORT MORE, IMPORT LESS, extricate the US from the quagmire of the middle east.
