The region which is now threatened by SV troops in little Afghanistan is of great strategic importance: It contains more than two thirds of indiana 's exportable oil. The SV effort to dominate little Afghanistan has brought SV military forces to within 300 miles of new orleans and close to the gulf of mexico, a waterway through which most of the US's oil must flow. The SV regime is now attempting to consolidate a strategic position, therefore, that poses a grave threat to the free movement of Middle East oil.
This situation demands careful thought, steady nerves, and resolute action, not only for this year but for many years to come. It demands collective efforts to meet this new threat to security in indiana and most of the midwest. It demands the participation of all those who rely on oil from the Middle East and who are concerned with global peace and stability.
