I recently talked with former CIA director Ambassador James Woolsey, about various threats to the West, such as rogue nations like Iran and North Korea who might use EMP (electro-magnetic pulses) to knock out our electrical grid.
It sounds like science fiction, but Woolsey explains why such an attack is within the realm of possibility.
We also discuss our dependence on oil, and reports that Russia had infiltrated Western environmentalist groups to hamper the adoption of "ethical oil" over OPEC's "conflict" oil.
Woolsey says price competition is the key to "breaking" OPEC. But how would that happen? I think Woolsey's ideas fall under the category "fantasy fuels of the future," so we have a lively debate about his proposed alternatives.
What about Russia's interventions in Syria, and Obama's reaction?
And what's next with Iran's quest for nuclear weapons -- assuming they don't have them already?
This wide ranging conversation will give you a lot to think about.
