ABSTRACT
This article discusses how the U.S. war against terrorism can affect its relations with the oil producing countries in the Middle East. According to the author, the war on terrorism should seek to diminish the influence of, and perhaps destroy, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). The OPEC can not cut off the oil supply to the West. As the Cato Institute's Jerry Taylor said that it is impossible for the organization. Although the OPEC may be able to sell oil that would have been sold to the U.S. to someone else and there is nothing stopping that third party from reselling it to the U.S.
