U.S. Military Uses More Oil per Day than the Entire Nation of Pakistan

The U.S. Department of Defense consumes more oil per day than 170 nations, including Pakistan, a country with 166 million people. Although the amount of fuel consumed by the military is not published, the quantity is estimated to be between 400,000 and 800,000 barrels a day.

Keeping America’s war machine moving has become increasingly expensive as the price of oil has gone up. A single barrel costs $80, but added to that is the cost of transporting the fuel to U.S. troops in such places as Afghanistan and Iraq. This means that maintaining a single soldier in a war zone can end up costing hundreds of dollars more a day. This rising cost explains why the armed services are investing in alternative energy and fuel sources, including the use of biofuels for ships and planes.

  1. Uhhh, I should hope so!

  2. Oh yeah,

    And don't forget about our POTUS & CO's trip to India in November;

    Elaborate security arrangements...

    The presidential entourage will have 40 aircraft, including the Air Force One that will ferry the president. There will be six armoured cars, including four Barack Mobiles and a Cadillac.

    Cadillac is equipped with a mini communication centre to enable Obama to be in touch with the White House, US vice president and the US strategic command. It also has the US nuke launch codes and it can withstand a chemical or germ warfare and a bomb attack.

    Two secret service command posts will be set up in Delhi and Mumbai to act as the communication nerve centres. These will monitor the president's movement with real time satellite monitoring.

    Three Marine One choppers will be reassembled in India to ferry the president and his family and to evacuate them in case of any emergency.

    link to article here:

    While Americans pare back on spending, B.O. spends, spends, spends! I wonder what the REAL REASON of having all of this equipment/personnel is?

  3. As a supporter of the military industrial complex and the technological revolution for providing lucid policies for the semi-monarchial system POTUS, I am shocked !

    Only one Cadillac?

    Where is the Cadillac for the real spokesperson for the Banksters and the CIA “intelligence” sector of the US.

    The Mighty Teleprompter.


    It's beneath the dignity of the semi-monarchial black face actor representing the US, and even more to the point, the dignity of the Teleprompter tasked by the US ruling elite to provide the official POTUS with policies ,if he has to carry his teleprompter TMTUS on his lap like the queen of England carries her handbag.

    What will the Hindu Brahmin Aryan ruling caste think?

    They are sure to feel slighted by indignity imposed on the Teleprompters system .

    This Brahmins caste are America’s great nuclear allies in the war for free trade and against terrorism on the sub-continent.

    Especialy for expanding any war against Muslim Pakistan where it is said the dead Osama Bin Laden still hangs out!
    So ,after all The POTUS has Armaments and other important outsourcing of jobs stuff to sell to India, in order to increase US exports , the key for the promised “recovery of the economy and employment” in the US.

    India contains the largest population of Muslims.
    And a huge Black "untouchable" Dalit caste.

    The US black liberation actor will of course never have to meet those poor Black Caste people , only the aristocratic Brahmin ruling caste.

    The US needs to develop a new competitive cheap labor commodity supplier as the Chinese “Communists” are getting uppity about the value of the dollar and the dollar hegemony system lately.
    Obama cannot be trusted to do the job without a telepromter, treated with the Cadillac dignity it deserves.

  4. If the Oil #s are even right at the low amounts we are so beyond screwed...Have any of you given thought what would happen to the US, the soldiars and the families of the soldiars if the system/dollar collapses?

    Whole bases may get left...Soldiars may get stuck...Equipment just left to be stolen or blown up on our way outa la Vietnam...Jeeeeeesus and lets not even touch the issue of what would happen here with probably 250 million unprepared citizens looting and hiding waiting for the government to help.

    This is soooooo like some sort of bad sci-fi novel...Check out "The Day The Dollar Died" on line great short story by some guy that gives a blueprint of what might happen after a crash...Spooky good.

  5. Oct 30 7:43, you do know this is standard Presidential movement.
    You want the presidentt dead right? post your name here so the SS can monitor your movement because think you wish the President harm.

  6. 3:18 - You better watch it. You're making a VERY serious and false accusation against 7:43 and you're the one the Secret Service may want to talk with.

  7. The main industry in the US today, is the US Military Industrial Complex. After the draft, spawned by the next major war that we will lose (against a real- non camel riding country), will hit the fan. Most ID10ts don't see this, cause they are too busy watching stupid Dancing with the stars like crap....

  8. the military will be the death of this country, economically, and militarily as china can crush us with either dumping the dollar or dumping bombs on us, either way we lose, get used to it.

  9. The cost of militarism for control of oil and other resources adds at least $30 to each barrel of oil for Americans to pay.
    americans are willing to die for that!
    And future costs for veteran care added on means that america will be paying the costs of the wars and militarism for years to come .Costs that will add to that current $30 a barrel price slug they will pay today .
    The oil companies promote hysteria about America needing necessary wars because of "Peak Oil'
    But wars for cheap oil supply are really then not so cheap as you think!
    Another part of the reason for these wars is a last ditch to try and enforce the dollar hegemony in oil prices.
    When Saddam stopped pricing Iraq oil in dollars war very quickly followed .
    Iran will not price its oil in dollars now, the criminals!
    So war is being threatened.Israel stirs the pot for its own colonialist reasons and to get free military aid subsidies from america.
    So its just endless wars un till America wakes up the dollar hegemony is finished already.

  10. @10/31/10 @ 3:18AM;

    You need to wake up from your coma. Go to and

    cue up The End of Liberty to 59:30, watch it to 1:00:40...and get a much needed dose of reality for yourself.

    It's no wonder our country is in the shitter with backwards-thinking shills like you around!

  11. I'm sure this oil is supplied for free by their Gulf-Arab allies!
