no more oil tragedies

oil development in the united states is one of the great american horatio alger success stories. oil development in the middle east has been one extended tragedy. as instability in that region reaches yet another crescendo, the developed world’s oil market looks elsewhere to satiate its appetites. In northern africa, the west has a chance to make a sincere effort to ensure that oil development doesn’t mean corruption, poverty and oppression for yet another region; there are better ways.
