    Turn it into ethynol, then plead your case. Hmmm, might change the dynamics, as corn/soybeans is causing unacceptable costs for food. Pull back to borders, make hemp your cause and make a killing.

    No one said TAKE. We merely prevented Iraq from initiating an oil bourse.

    Let's start with nuclear, and hemp, and go from there.

    You misread what I posted. We DO have an interest in who controls the oil. You response is not to that.

    Okay. Explain the statements that are direct quotes from Paul's mouth in the original post.

    If you admit that though, and you also realize that there are other OPEC nations that would certainly entertain the idea of switching to a different currency for trade, namely Iran, then why do you buy into the terrorism card, and all the other fear mongering?

    It's not like we're going to publicly admit "We can't let this nation sell their own oil in a different currency, we must invade and change regimes".

    And if I was using the source as a reference you might have an argument. Since I commented only on a quote from Ron Paul that is contained within the blog, you don't have one at all.

    Served. Again. Shut up and go away retard.

    Neither choice is viable.

    Oil was a secondary consideration to invading Iraq. I know there are those of you who believe otherwise, but you're just wrong. Invading Iraq was about Saddam Hussein.

    No. You take a simple statement and start running for the wrong goalposts with it.

    Having an interest in who controls the oil is simply smart since we are dependent on it. Making arguments otherwise is unrealistic.

    That statement also does NOT say we invaded Iraq to control the oil. There's a lot of reading into shit going on here.

    We can support certain regimes and not others without lifting a finger. An interest in who controls the oil is not mutually inclusive with invasion and regime change.

    HAHA, look at Eots the Ronbot apologist spin machine. Ron Paul alleges that Bush never takes accountability for the screw ups in the government, yet Ron Paul can't even take credit for his own newsletter. This is a fucking newsletter we're talking about, not some big shit like Ron Paul the Magazine. It's not like this was a full fledged operation with a team of editors and writers.

    Seriously, how hard is it to read a couple of pages in a leaflet? If Ron Paul can't even proofread his own rinky dink bullshit, how can anyone trust him to read something like "Bin Laden determined to strike in US"?
