JWV Proposes New Oil Resources

Spring 2008

The Jewish War Veterans of the USA (JWV) condemns the unwillingness of Saudi Arabia to increase its oil production despite a personal plea from the President of the United States. This marks the second rebuff to a plea from the President this year and is a slap in the face to this country that has provided special arms deals and other concessions to the Saudis.

Despite the U.S. support and friendship to this totalitarian regime, the Saudi government sees no reason to return the favor and contribute to a strengthening of this important sector of the U.S. and world economies which are faltering in the face of rapidly increasing fuel prices.

Given the recalcitrance of the Saudis to help increase oil production, the United States should spur its NAFTA partners, Canada and Mexico, to double their oil production at this time. While NAFTA was negotiated and intended as an economic advantage to all three countries, the United States is not getting its due from its partners, who are capable of doubling their oil production to protect the economic interests of all three of the NAFTA partners.

Canada and Mexico must be made to shoulder their responsibilities under NAFTA and double their oil production. U.S. oil supplies cannot be held hostage to the whim of the Saudis, who are friends neither to the U.S. nor to Israel.
