The Gift of Life

The American military protects oil shipping lanes, protects many oil-producing countries, and fights to defend the U.S. and its allies from terrorist groups funded by oil money (source). Why? Because oil has a monopoly on transportation fuel, so it is vital to America's interests.

But fuel competition would change that. And it would put fewer servicemen and servicewomen in harm's way. It's something to think about on Veteran's Day.
