    That is one helluva long pipeline to build just to get your oil to market. Don't you think?

    Wouldn't it be much easier and cheaper just to go to the Atlantic Coast? Maybe even Seattle, Washington? There are already tankers going back and forth from Alaskan pipelines so why do we need some oil pipeline bisecting the continental United States in the first place? Gee, wouldn't it be just a wonderful target for terrorists if they allowed it? Why create it then? Maybe they would start smuggling Canadians across the border in the pipeline in little oil submarines! Call out the INS! We have "undocumented oil" coming through the pipe!

    The insanity of creating this pipeline is outweighed by the increased environmental damage it would likely cause. Not to mention to increased chance of a major oil spill occurring in middle of some pristine watershed for the midwest.

    So why even consider it?
