This thread got me thinking.

My take on Iraq

They just want to be left alone to tend to their society. The rest of the world should just stop Piss-ing off the Arabs (Turks, Moors, Ottomans etc. - and they are not "aye-rabs!"). They would have no reason to attack the west and the west would have no reason to be there.

If it wasn't for the oil.

We need to agree that pillaging (corporate or otherwise) is not a pretext for war and make both governments and markets conform to that principle.

This is a Peak Oil War. How much killing on both sides per barrel?

This is the root of terrorism that western governments need to come to grips with in my opinion.

I see no political action from my government on this front other than half-hearted attempts at finding new green technology to wean us off our oil, maybe in 20 years.

What to do?

I agree, we need new ways for energy, cause oil isn't cutting it anymore. But the government has showed clearly that they ain't interested in developing anything new.

The only thing we are currently doing over there is Iraq is adding ingredients to the soil to produce oil in several billion years.

I have recently taken interest in the peak oil theroy and I am very surprised that it is not mentioned in mainstream press more. Regardless of how you view the Iraq war (terrorism vs. oil) is is obvious to me that very little will be done untill our backs are to the wall. Much like the impending train wreck that is social security in the US, nobody will do anything untill it is an overwhelming problem

I find it interesting that despite an end to an oil workers strike (I forget the country name) and the new flow of Iraqi oil that the price of oil the other day was near $41 a barrel. With those two changes the price should be down quite a bit and not at record levels.

Blood for oil, boys, this is the real deal.

It's unconscionable that people continue to ignore the remaining levels of the resource upon which we depend so greatly.

Apparently, the peak of production was a few years ago, in 2000, but we may not actually know for a few more (after it's too late?).

There is much info on peak oil and the topic has been discussed a lot on ATS. For a good thread that includes many links, check this out.

The strike was is Norway I believe. As for Iraqi oil it is not flowing as the Neocons predicted it would. The pipelines are attacked regularly and the oil supply is interrupted. This problem will not go away until the occupation is over (if ever) and even then, there will be a war over control of the trillions of dollars in potential oil revenues.
