The Case Of Oil Price Reduction As A Weapon In The War On Terror

Recently we are seeing the convergence of movements on the issue of oil usage in the US. On one side the environmentalists are pushing for reduction in green house gas emission and on the other the security hawks are preaching for reduction of the dependence on foreign oil for the sake of national security and particularly for the sake of a stable US economy. As encouraging as these developments are, they fall short in both scope and implementation timeline. It is not just about reduction of green house gas emission or becoming independent of foreign oil, rapid and dramatic reduction in oil price can become the primary weapon in the war on terror.
