  •  China has used up their oil (0+ / 0-)

    but finds it very difficult to import from the Middle East.

    That is probably one reason we are in Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Iraq, Iran and the rest of the mideast, so that China can't beg borrow or steal access to the refineries of the Gulf by fomenting revolution with the shia down around Basra and then rigging a pipeline across Iran.

    China is also shut out of the Pacific Rim and SE Asia by Japan, and has been negotiating like hell with Russia for a pipeline to run to the Pacific.

    Most of the oil that remains is in Canada and Russia, we have about 600-700 Million barrels in reserve in the US which is enough with conservation and rationing to hold us for about 2 weeks if every other source dried up.
