The Russians are Coming!

During the past few years Russian oil revenues have generated a surplus of $500 billion, and Russia is using this money to rebuild and expand its military after many years of neglect. We are in the midst of a resurgence of Russia and its totalitarian machinations. The foray into Georgia is an example of the mentality of the Russian leadership, and Russia might be rekindling a close relationship with Cuba. Russia has conducted talks with Cuba, Syria and Vietnam on the use of naval bases, and has promised to help Venezuela develop a nuclear “energy” program.

As the largest consumer of oil in the world we have to continue to reduce our oil consumption, which will help our economy and the environment, exert downward pressure on oil prices, and decrease the revenue going to Russia and other foreign countries.
