Our president messed up his message with the WMD argument. Hingsight being 20-20. The reason for the attack on Afghanistan, Iraq, and then anyother OPEC nation is very simply when you tie 911 with mideast terrorism, at all points back to oil. Oil is the reason any of the terrorist has an avenue into our country to do what they did. Whether directly tied to a terrorist group or not, all are indirectly tethered. From EVERY dollar of mideast oil a piece of that dollar finds its way into a terrorist organization. Either from directly funding them (Jordan) or as a means of protection (Saudi) from the terrorist group itself. But it is all about oil. What we began to do in Iraq is turn off the spigot. Without oil revenues, there are no means for these acts. It takes money to do what they did. Without oil revenues, our borders are suddenly safer 1000 times over. THIS is the message we should be preaching (for the benefit of other OPEC nations). This is the case the American people will understand, accept and support because 911 was so close to us. Without oil revenues, the peoples of the mideast, kings, princes, paupers would soon return to sheep herding and bedoins. They have no other natural resources. It would be as biblical times once again. Friends, its all about oil. It is the lifeblood of terrorism of this type. Remove it, and it dies.
