Bush gives new reason for Iraq war
By Jennifer Loven, Associated Press | August 31, 2005
Says US must prevent oil fields from falling into hands of terrorists
The president, standing against a backdrop of the USS Ronald Reagan, the newest aircraft carrier in the Navy's fleet, said terrorists would be denied their goal of making Iraq a base from which to recruit followers, train them, and finance attacks.
''We will defeat the terrorists," Bush said. ''We will build a free Iraq that will fight terrorists instead of giving them aid and sanctuary."
''If Zarqawi and [Osama] bin Laden gain control of Iraq, they would create a new training ground for future terrorist attacks," Bush said. ''They'd seize oil fields to fund their ambitions. They could recruit more terrorists by claiming a historic victory over the United States and our coalition."

Next Bush will be claiming the terrorist where responsible for the Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf Coast.

Mind games are just so easy to used to manipulate public opinion.

No, actually it was the terrorists [having a host of implied references here] who claimed that Bush was responsible for Hurricane Katrina, the Indonesian tsunami, among other devasting world events and tragedies.....

If you replace some Words with OIL things become much clearer...
"We will not rest until OIL is America's and our OIL is secure"
