We’re not free as long as we depend on foreign oil. Talk about pipelines or tweaking politics, it’s all really short sighted. The long view is that fossil fuel is FINITE anyway So all these things we’re fighting wars to keep going will be for nought, and it’s not millenia in the future, but in the forseeable future–our children/grandchildren’s lifetime. My uplifting thought for the fourth of July 2012. Cultural note: In the USA, traditional fuel is gasoline or gas for short. I’m not referring to natural gas in this comic, although some vehicles do run on that.
