Protecting the Oil Revenues

The U.S. Marine Corps will start recalling thousands of inactive service members in the coming months to counter a steady decline in the number of non-active troops volunteering for duty, the service said on Tuesday.

This is wrong. We need to bring our boys home NOW. One can only shake their head in bewilderment when 60% of Americans want out of Iraq and our idiot president is involuntarily sending more.

Crooks and Liars has the video of Sen. Hagel stating "Don't Feed More Troops to Iraq."

And if that news isn't enough, we have Joe Lieberman agreeing, not once but SIX times with ultra-Conservative radio host Glenn Beck that the real reason we invaded Iraq wasn't over WMD but because we wanted to "pop the head of the snake in Iran." Lieberman simply agreed, which makes one wonder if he has any thoughts of his own. Is this what Lieberman means by unity of the parties? He is a democrat (in name only) and is distancing himself more and more from True Progressive Democrats when he goes on a show like this and agrees with this right wingnut. All I can say is that it seems Lieberman fits in nicely with his own kind now.

So now, we didn't invade Iraq for WMD's, nor because it was connected to 9/11 according to the idiot president yesterday.

The terrorists attacked us and killed 3,000 of our citizens before we started the freedom agenda in the Middle East.

Except for it’s part of — and nobody’s ever suggested in this administration that Saddam Hussein ordered the attack. Iraq was a — Iraq — the lesson of September the 11th is: Take threats before they fully materialize.

"I hear a lot of talk about civil war. I'm concerned about that, of course," Bush said, citing Iraq as part of what he called "a global war on terror."

"A failed Iraq in the heart of the Middle East will provide safe haven for terrorists and extremists. It will embolden those who are trying to thwart the ambitions of reformers.

"In this case, it would give the terrorists and extremists an additional tool besides safe haven, and that is revenues from oil sales."

I am truly ashamed to be an American when our President tells us that he went on a "freedom agenda" and in doing so he used shock and awe. But even worse is when our President lies in using the words "Take threats before they fully materialize . . ."

Afterall, we all know that North Korea was and still is the genuine threat that is materializing before our eyes, but our idiot president does nothing...could it be because N. Korea has no oil. Instead, he sends more young men to Iraq to protect oil revenues.
