An idea to defend oil infrastructure in the Middle East may need to take into consideration some of the available close at hand opportunities. For instance creating a mote like perimeter and filling it with oily, seawater and chemical polymer chains or “Goo” and then covering the mote with a layer of sand. This can be done easily by digging the mote, 100 feet wide and 10 feet deep and lining it with a plastic bottom. Then increase the underground pressure and drilling down and allowing the salt-water, which has been pumped in, to flow out into the newly dug lined mote.
Once the mote is completely filled and before any of the oily water moisture evaporates, create a dust storm to cover the “goo” with a layer of sand. Thus you have created a gooey mess, which not able to be penetrated by surface movement such as Camels, walking insurgents or suicide car bombers. It will be necessary for oil companies to defend their assets and it is also necessary that the United States stick to protecting Americans, due to costs and readiness to defend against future threats without over extending our resources.
If the Oil Companies are able to defend their own assets and secure the perimeters of their facilities against International Terrorists without such things which have been determined to be inhuman such as landmines or the outright shooting any trespasser for fear they might have hostile intentions, the human race is better served.
