    You're not seriously suggesting he was in Pakistan the whole time are you?

    Sure, but without the demand, it will be like having a corner on the market for buggy wheels. Think coal today: there are still coal users, but coal is not where the future of energy is at. Bottom line though is it comes back to this: you start this war and it costs us trillions of dollars, increases our risk level as a nation, and accomplishes absolutely jack shit at the end of the day. I'd rather spend it on the fucking Space Force. At least we'd be looking to the future. Pew pew, I'm in the space force!
    I don't use Lich. If you want to do business with me, contact me via PM, IG, or on AIM. Or maybe use smoke signals. Don't like it, get off of my lawn.

    But there is always going to be a demand, especially as the amount shrinks. Electric isn't going to be good enough to put out the power and range needed for military vehicles and even most freight vehicles for quite some time. I can't even imagine how many and how big the batteries for a 40t armored vehicle would have to be that would allow for it to operate at least 300 miles and have quick recharging. Lets not even get to Fighters and even just commercial airliners.

    You're concentrating on civilian vehicles, but only 25% of petroleum is even used for transportation, period. That includes cars and air travel.

    I see the media has done their spin on you regarding the Space Force. The US military already does a lot of shit in space, mostly the Air Force, dealing with satellites and the like and developing ways to protect our assets in space from nations like China and Russia. The problem is there are so many different branches and organizations doing this stuff so there is no one agency leading these efforts. The proposed Space Force would just create a consolidated leading authority that makes all decisions regarding space. But the media would have you believe Trump is calling for putting Marines inside of a space suit and having them shoot at aliens or something. Because the media sucks.

    I wish it were true though. I want to be a Space Marine instead of just some Earth Marine.

    Oil is outdated. More trouble than its worth. People fight over it. It pollutes our planet. It got us through the industrial age into the information age. Now we need to put it to rest in the new age of sustainability.
