Freeworld_Esq.: Great thread, but don't ever rely on people reading your links.

Defending the USA's actions in Iraq are so much easier when people use no facts. In fact, it's the only way to defend it, to turn a blind eye to everything but the most simplistic views.

USA good, Iraq bad.

It IS all about OIL, but it's almost impossible to get anyone spoonfed FOX and CNN to even consider it.

That first article was all the opinion of the writer. He did not state any facts, just his theories on why the US is going after Iraq.

Here is the thing my friends, we are now closer than ever to having those electrical and hybrid cars, Someone is going to make a lot of money off of those and Bush and the gang know it.

Just last year, Bush was discussing the possiblities of the hybrid car and the elelctrical and alcahol burning cars with engineers and scientists, he even requested that they invest more (the companies) into creating this technology. We are less than 15 years away from independence from oil.
Within 10 years many people will have the hybrids. This doesn't seem to me to be great motivation to grab the last of the oil reserves, especially when we have our own.

Besides that, with the major crush and increased prices of gasoline in America right now. If all that you say is true, if Bush was only after the oil right now, don't you think that Bush would ask the Iraqis for some of their oil that we fought for.

He hasn't and he won't because that is not why we went in.

That's Funny. The people who are really behind why we went in, don't ask for anything. They never have, probably never will. Oil has many more uses than just to fuel vehicles. The collapse of oil as we know it, would me the collapse of many nations who depend on the transportation of it for their economies. Both through pipelines, and on the seas. There couldn't be enough Hybrids made, purchased, and ran to eliminate the need for oil.


In regards to the any of the articles I made mention of being the authors opinion. I beg to disagree. Maybe the words of those interviewed for the article are opinion, but in most cases they are people in the know, peoples who opinions matter.

In your signature superkile it says "I am totally shocked at how many people don't know what is really going on in Iraq!" With that I would assume you do. Please take a moment to set the record straight for those of us who care to know.
