Well a tale of two pipelines now and America's energy security the keystone XL pipeline were brought oil from Alberta Canada.
All the way down to Texas.
Been in the news a lot as you know the Obama administration has block to the project to this point.
So now Canada says it wants to build another pipeline to its West Coast.
Take most of that oil and ship it to China.
Are there are some national security implications here let's talk about it with KT McFarland a Fox News.
National security expert TT what do you think I mean that a lot of people of the sad.
-- it seems a little crazy to take you know.
Oil and and jobs and so for the -- obviously could use from our good neighbor to the north and and since it.
And it it's crazy and you know time for the last hundred years.
Access to energy in possession of energy.
Has been -- major factor in world events if -- had energy whether it was Britain.
In the nineteenth century or the air or countries in the twentieth century -- -- beyond the mansion if you didn't have a he went to war.
So the 21 century is going to be the same way but the difference is it's our turn now we've got in Canada.
And in the United States oil and natural gas we didn't realize we had before and in the last few years.
Our engineers have told us we can get out of the ground cheaply and securely so why we're not taking advantage of this Canadian oil.
Which is a silver bought for all of us is -- -- Stephen Harper -- the Canadian prime minister has said he is profoundly disappointed with our administration's decision not to build the pipeline down to the Gulf Coast.
Out of -- so if they if they build it to connect Canada's west -- -- and ship it to China from their what's the net effect.
OK I was -- it -- Canadian cancer of the nicest last month that he said the same thing he said according to build a pipeline we got this news source of -- We want a bill that pipeline south they wanna sell their oil we want -- sell -- -- you he'll be a great partner and America and Canada can be the energy superstars that if you don't wanna -- that pipeline south.
We're gonna build out west and we're gonna export our energy.
To China that China and India both.
Need access to a lot of energy.
Really quickly to sustain their economic growth they're gonna get it wherever they can.
And if we're willing to walk away from the deal of the century and give it to the Chinese I think that's a major political mistake and the you know it's truly terrible for the -- And they don't -- or how Canadian are on American or on -- for -- they're silver bullet.
They're great for jobs -- create millions of jobs from that it'll give us a secure.
And cheap source of energy for generations.
And it'll last a semi independent.
A Middle East oil and all the turmoil in the Middle East.
Well one of the arguments one of the arguments and there are many that the administration has trotted out against this thing but one of the arguments is we need to -- this country off of oil.
Not good for you know.
Global warming or whatever.
But if you send it to China it's not like they're going to eat it I mean they're gonna burn it anyway.
Right well the world is not gonna turn on Windmills and solar panels of the the fact of the matter is for transportation fuel.
Or industrial fields were still using oil and coal.
And natural gas is built into our infrastructure -- I can't change -- two years so the fact that we have access to cheap and secure energy and were walking away from it.
It's just a huge mistake and apparently -- States and perhaps.
Sending it to a country China that we have a lot of questions about right well and we're going to allow the Chinese buildup that our own expense their economic filled up and potentially their military's don't.
