    Just out of curiosity: do you own a car; and if so, how big is the gas tank and how often do you fill it up?

    Good point but for many that very queston doesn't matter, like the principle really. This is alot more than just oil but also respect from the world regarding a people who have been used for the very thing that made them important, thus a war from every direction and it is beyond the highest bidder!

    I live 25 miles from my place of employment, I do not own a motorcycle. There is no public trans from here to there, and if there were, I'd probably not want to take that bus.

    I agree...Why are all those Muslims killing other Muslims? I could be wrong, but it appears your saying America is committing genocide to get oil. I believe most the murders going on are being committed by Muslims on Muslims. Not Americans killing Muslims. We are not over there shooting people up. We are basically a police force right now. We are just making sure the Iraqi Government isn't overthrown. If we were there to commit genocide, then this operation would have been completed one year after it started.

    What, pray tell, genocide would that be? Let's be real. If the US was willing to go to any means -- including genocide -- to take another nation's oil, we'd already have easily done so.

    Wouldn't have taken THAT long. Six months, tops. No Nation on Earth could stand up to the US military completely unleashed.

    SHOCK & AWE come to mind.......ohhhh right.....we were only targeting military targets. LOL!!!!

    After "mission accomplished" we draft IRAQI laws that would effectively PRIVITIZE IRAQ'S oil (which does not belong to the US). Pretty slick if you ask me. Stealing without making it look like stealing.
