    Protecting oil perhaps, taking control of it, no. There maybe a war, if in words only brewing over oil:

    If we wanted oil, we'd have gone to Mexico or Venezuela. They're both countries that have an excess of both oil and attitude.

    Okay, to those who think we went in to control the oil -

    We're there nearly 3 years and we're not in total and complete control of it yet because....?

    Obviously, it's President Bush's fault. They'll figure out why later. Or not.

    So now he's a miserable failure at gaining control of the oil for which he went to war for - got it.

    Ok, back to the thesis of the original post, my 'title' sucked and got us off topic. Here is another, related post:

    Well, you have to admire the liberals for their tenacity if nothing else, mainly because they have nothing else. Like a pit bull without teeth, their growl and demeanor is enough to still scare some, but in fact, they have nothing of substance.

    They have stoodfast to two different lines, despite thier own apparent contradictions. In spite of the lack of logic, reason or intelligence, they have been screaming "We went into Iraq for cheap oil" while at the same time foaming from the mouths they scream, "Were wasting 47 zillion dollars a minute in IRaq, the war is costing too much"

    Things that make you go HMMMMMMMMMMMMM
