Russian oil will never belong to the West as far as Putin is concerned and right now he holds all the Aces.

Short of a total invasion of Russia which will annihilate the world, we are now in a multi-polar energy world with chilling implication for western economies.

Energy is the economy and the only country that can come close to self-sustaining energy production is US and Canada and we import 1.2 million barrels a day and no we can't ramp up our shale production anymore. (net imports after exports of refined crude). Although Canadians are nice, their economy is tiny on a global scale and their tar sands are dirty beyond belief. No EU nation is energy secure, neither is Japan, SK or any other of our "allies'. The dark clouds on the horizon are there because a storm is brewing.
