What oil wells were drilled in China. There was no China at that time.

Hey, nice to see you again, honey.

Do yo know how your own country came into being?

There was no such thing as India before the Britons came to the subcontinent to screw up the warring teeny-weeny kingdoms there and bond them together into a state, so India owes its existence to the UK's brutality towards the land's inhabitants. You guys should be proud of that.
Believe it or not, it's true.

It makes no economic sense for India to import oil from the US when it can get it more cheaply from nearer oil producers such as Iran and Saudi Arabia.  Here I coin this expression "To carry American oil to India" with the following meanings:

(a)  To waste money on a project that can be accomplished cheaply by other means, that is, to do something at an unnecessary cost.

(b)  To take something to a place where its kind can be obtained more cheaply elsewhere.

Good points.
Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured. Mark Twain
