Abstract : There is a growing realization that the United States is incapable of meeting its crude oil requirements through conventional domestic production. A review of current literature sources leads to the inescapable conclusion that at least part of this deficiency must be met by the importation of foreign crude oil. Reliance on foreign sources for so vital a resource as crude oil has many drawbacks, economic as well as political. In the years to come, these conditions may well force upon the US some very difficult decisions. The author conjectures about these decisions, as well as their implications for US military forces.
