    Rock - get over it, transnationals don't have a country, only self interest. They only pretend to be linked to a country because then they suck money out of gullible national/regional governments.

    This is in response to the liberal turds on this board that keep insisting we invaded to steal all the oil , the claim now being we force the Iraq Government to make deals with just our oil companies.

    Rock - this a left wing turd speaking (the difference between a right wing turd and a left wing turd is that we talk sense, the right wing turds only talk shit).

    That's what happened. But the oil wasn't supposed to be liberated. That would make it s-o-c-i-a-l-i-s-t. BIg oil grabbed it to hold onto it to make sure the price went sky high.

    Over and out.

    Bush and Cheney can expect fat cheques. But I don't think they'll get "Mission Accomplished" banners, that would be a bit too revealing.

    Hey, retired, did you see where one of the NeoCons that was in on the war planning is negotiating with Iraq for an oil contract. I don't think he is Chinese.:eek:

    And pleasse quit speaking for the left. You don't even truly represent the right except for the extreme.

    Show me the quote where all the lefties said what you stated.

    You make up more shit than a Christmas goose. Hmmm, maybe that't what you need. I will check with Craig to see if he's busy.:lol:

    Deflection and bullshit, you think that will work? Sorry but anyone that was not off hiding on another board knows full well that HAS been the claim around here.

    Just what I thought. You can't show it. You are the ultimate of deflection and partisan bullshit.

    And I haven't been hiding on another board. The day I hide from an intellectual giant like you, I will have become a republicant:lol:

    Your hatred for the left is really sad. I may disagree with some of the right's positions, but I don't hate the other party like you seem to.

    Some people get older and wiser. Some just get older. Have a great life.

    Hey Gunny, if we DIDN'T invade Iraq for the oil, then please (as a retired military man, of which I'm one from the Navy), explain to me why in the hell we went into Iraq, when the real perpetrators of 9/11 were a full country away over in Afghanistan/Pakistan? Afghanistan/Pakistan DON'T have oil, yet Iraq does. The idiot in the White House used 9/11 as an excuse to avenge his father's reputation and make some money in the process.

    Remember how we were told that the Iraq war would "pay for itself in the oil revenue we will save", and how RumsFAILED said that the war would only last 6 months? Several years and over 4,000 of my fellow brothers and sisters in arms later, we're STILL there, the oil market is screwed, Iraq is screwed, and Bin Laden is still running free.

    Oh yeah....Greenspan (who I think knows a thing or two) even said that the war in Iraq was strictly for oil.

    Buckle up devil dog, and fly right.
