Does that make it right? Yes.
Oil drives our economy. We need it. We need to have an ample supply of the slick stuff to keep our engine running. Without it, we are a third world nation.
Until we develop a new fuel source or tap our ground - if we ever quit bowing down to the tree huggers - we are dependent on oil from the Middle East.
Who controls all this oil? A bunch of fanatics that don't like us. So we do what we have to do to ensure OUR survival and way of life. If this pisses off the rest of the world, so be it. Is it right? Maybe not. But what choice do we have?
Is it possible that Bush allowed 911? Sure it is, but i don't beeleeve it. They were attacking us YEARS before he became Prez and will continue to do so until they have defeated or until we wipe em out.
