Loxd4 said:If Venezuela cut off there oil supply to United States of America for no good reason (which there would be no good reason). The U.S. would have to buy more oil from another county or open up there reserves or use war as an option (as did Japan in WWII), because the U.S. need oil to fuel it's economy.
And I would like to say "It would not be morally right to invited Venezuela if this happen, but remember morally come last when the will to survive kicks in.”
I am try to say that when we cut off oil to Japan in WWII, we provoke them to attack us because they did have enough oil to fuel there war machine.
Dose this make more sense now?
Well as far as im concerned its up to the government of Venezuela who they do buissness with not the government of america. There would be plenty of reasons for Venezuela to cut off oil to america.
For one thing the C.I.A attempted to overthrow Chavez. A leader given a popular mandate to government by the people on Venezulea 7 times if i remember rightly. Like you said cutting a nations oil supply cuts the fuel to there "war machine" Therfore cutting americas oil supply would be an effective and justified method of self defence.
