    Good morrow, all!
    The US is in Iraq for one reason: to achieve, and maintain, control of Iraq’s petroleum resources. Democracy? The War on Terorism? The stabilizing of the Middle East? What am I bid for this excellent bridge? Cash only, and small bills, please.
    What’s a few thousand American lives, and a few tens of thousands of Iraqi lives, compared with profits for Big Oil?
    As Richard Dreyfuss, channeling Dick Cheney in that chilling portrayal in W, said: No exit. We are not leaving. Not as long as there is a dollar or two to be made.

    CTZen – That’s about the size of it — most of the money that there was to be stolen, err “made”, in Iraq has come and gone. The days of millions of dollars vanishing into thin air are over now, too much oversight with a new government in charge.

    Amazing though — everything Will says in that article is stuff the anti-war people were saying 5 years ago, the only difference is the number of bodies and the amount of money wasted. I seem to remember people being called “traitors” for saying that kind of thing 🙄

    Good morrow, all!
    Traitors? In whose estimation, and by what standard of measurement?
    The Anti-Christ is not a person. The Anti-Christ is a philosophy. This philosophy says simply: Love money. Use people. Someone once said: Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
    Correction: It is the LUST for power which corrupts. It is that lust for power which instigates all wars, which causes governments to abuse its own citizenry, which places the pursuit of more power above the benefit of one’s fellow human, which makes one’s fellow human a mere playing piece in the game of money and power.
    Lust, greed, gluttony, envy, anger (can’t include sloth, since these monsters work REALLY HARD at what they do)…sound familiar?
