Senator Schumer Prefers Conflict Oil To Canadian Oil

Presses Clinton to pressure Saudis:

“While Iran plays games with oil production to punish the international community for holding them accountable for their rush to develop nuclear weapons, Saudi Arabia has the capacity to blunt Iran’s influence by increasing its production levels to capacity,” said Schumer. “If there is one thing that the United States and Saudi Arabia have in common, it’s the understanding that Iran is a destabilizing influence in the Middle East and the world. We can calm markets and lower gas prices, while at the same time curtailing Iranian influence, by increasing Saudi production. I am urging the State Department to work with the Saudi’s and press them to bring their oil production to capacity to replace Iranian losses.”

Sure, because it’s not like we have anything in common with Canada, or anything.
