    Is there anyone left who denies oil was at minimum part of the reason why we went to war?



    Hopefully soon enough people learn how important it is in our wars in Afghanistan and Libya, but Iraq is a good start.

    Yeah, all that OIL we are getting from Iraq, sure seems it WAS FOR OIL.

    of course it couldn't be for Humanitarian reason or to dispose a evil Dictator like the Obama's war on Libya.

    of course the war was over oil... only meth addicted rednecks believed we actually cared about the plight of the iraqs and wanted to 'free' them

    Neither wars are for humanitarian reasons, you really have to be living in another world to have faith in the morals of american bureacrats.



    Just seems the "poor people" in oil-rich areas have a lot better chance of being "saved" by our military than poor people living on land without texas tea underneath them.

    Our intelligence saw a town full of homes in Iraq using propane tanks to heat them and just mistakenly took them for nukes.


    Honest mistake.....................................
