All of you folks who hate Bush should pay attention. We have no need to take Fallujah in order to pump oil if that was our aim. It is not.

Violent suppression of civilian rebellion, which is what this actually is, is the only method to ensure that the current government will survive to allow the pumping of that oil.

I hate couch patriots. If you are so eager to kill terrorists and to support Bush's mindless drive to war, then by all means, join up and "serve" your country...

No one wants to see people being killed in wartime, and oil probably is a factor in this iraq conflict but what people seem to forget is that Saddam Hussain murdered tens if not hundreds of thousands of his own people and breached 3 UN reslolutions. We may not be able to find the WMD but he was still in breach, what did he have to hide ? All you anti-war protesters need to have a reality check and rememeber what happened in NY a few years ago. What kind of message would leaving iraq now give, terrorists would see that as an open invitation.
