CargoCult

No, they are war criminals who are responsible for the unnecessary deaths of about a million people, all so that Exxon, Chevron, BP and Shell could get access to Iraq's 200 billion+ barrels of sweet light crude.

200 billion barrels at $100-$200 a barrel is a net value of $20-$40 Trillion dollars. At an expected production rate of 5 million barrels a day, that is income of $180-$360 billion dollars a year.

The entire goal of the Iraq war was to remove Saddam from power, put a corrupt dictator on the throne, tear up all the old oil contracts, and make sure that the dictator granted Exxon and Chevron and BP and Shell first rights to Iraqi oil.

That's what the press won't talk about - becuase the press in the U.S. is owned and controlled by the same investors who also own and control the fossil fuel industry - the richest people on the planet, not more than a few thousand all told, are happy to see the planet fry as long as they've got unlimited air conditioning and endless retinues of servants to carry out their orders.

Democracy? What a sham.

I agree, the men who control the oil hold more power than any president. cutting off the oil supply is far worse than any nuke.

Of course they are war criminals, but for some reason the American people don't have the will to bring them to justice.

We don't have the will to bring them to justice? That's probably true. But we elected this sad lot. And you can say that you voted against them... or even that regardless of who you vote for you end up with the same corrupt politician in office but it's no excuse. The fact is it has gotten a hell of a lot harder to make sense of this government and this country in these times. Especially with the media's ever growing influence and widening gap between rich and poor. And we've all gone a bit lethargic just when we needed to be on our toes.

The sad thing is that Bush and his colleagues have actually done us all a favor over the last 8 years. They actually have the average American asking important questions for a change. Some of us are actually cleaning the sleep out of our eyes and looking at ourselves in the mirror.

" It is forbidden to kill: therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets. "

"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities."

Don't worry, everything will work itself out: we all die someday. But unfortunately for these ass clowns all the money they made off war isn't going buy their way out of hell.
