“Evil will come from the north.” The Soviet Union is a clear manifestation of this prophecy. At the same time, G-d bestowed the United States with the mission and the moral and material might to counter this evil. To succeed, however, America must be free of economic pressure from immoral dictatorships. If we rely on them for oil, this nation’s strength and influence is compromised.

“Evil will come from the north.” The Soviet Union is a clear manifestation of this prophecy. At the same time, G-d bestowed the United States with the mission and the moral and material might to counter this evil. To succeed, however, America must be free of economic pressure from immoral dictatorships. If we rely on them for oil, this nation’s strength and influence is compromised.

G-d would never allow America to be manipulated by small hostile states simply because they have some natural resource. America need only leverage its ability to produce domestic oil, which, in truth, it does have in abundance.

This is not in order to wield US strength, or increase US power. G-d placed these resources in this nation’s soil, only so that, ultimately, it will be able to spread Torah’s justice throughout the world.
