    I learned yesterday that 2 oil men that gave Bush millions for his presidential library are getting oil deals with the Kurds in Northern Iraq. The deals are not going to Al Malaki, so basically the central government means shit. Now the Shiites have oil, but the Sunni's do not have very much. So basically the Sunni's, in the future, are going to be very bitter and so expect many Sunni's to join the terrorists and cause a lot of trouble in the future. Most of the 9-11 terrorists were Saudi Sunni's. George Bush and his oil men are breeding terrorists and making things worse. The deal should have included the Iraqi government, which represents Sunni's, shiites and Kurds.

    I thought we wanted one iraq, not 3 different countries?

    If the media is liberal Charles, why aren't they telling these stories? Doing this is going to ruin the idea of having one Iraq and it is going to cause rage within the Sunni population, not to mention undermine the Iraqi central government, because they aren't going to get the revenue. The revenue will go straight to the Kurds. So expect terrorism to come from this move. Why haven't you heard this? And I am sure you will make excuses and downplay how bad of a move this is, because you don't understand what is going on.

    So again, if you really want to know what is going on in politics, you should tune into Air America and/or Nova M radio. Rachel Maddow, Randi Rhodes, Bill Press, Ed Schultz. They don't hide what's going on, they tell you what the mainstream and corporate media are hiding from you.

    USA today is not a liberal mag Charles because if they were, they would have reported this. Wake up.

    Sorry yesterday I said Barrack is winning every poll 47 to 41 percent. Boy, you sure busted me...:lol:

    And if I post something I heard, then I can't very well include a link to my brain. I heard it. Luckily you can find almost everything on the internet. So if you come back with why you don't think this is a big deal, please provide a link to some article defending these conflicts of interest and/or moves that could create more trouble in the future for both us and Iraq.

    At one point our Sunni allies were fighting us. They got sick of Al Queda so they helped our cause yes, but we also paid them and armed them. So now that we are fucking them with oil revenues, don't expect them to stay buddies forever.

    Our sunni allies. :lol:

    Maybe if the central government could pull it's shit together all three factions in Iraq could benefit form oil deals. Something wrong with doing business with them before they pull it together?

    It makes the central government even more irrelivent. If the Kurds can strike seperate deals and the Shiites can strike their own deals, then why would they want to be a part of a central government? So now don't expect the Kurds to want to be a part of Iraq.

    So basically you don't see a problem with the Sunni's getting screwed from here going forward, because their part of Iraq has very little oil.

    We are creating terrorists. Watch and see.

    Now I said a long time ago that iraq should just be broken up into three countries. But the consensus was that was a bad idea. Bush said so, and so did everyone else. But it looks like we are moving in that direction.
