The person that did in fact resurrect the thread had a whole different intention for doing so.

Only ONE can resurrect an old thread. Afterward, it is current again. See how simple that is.

Check YOUR writing. YOU said "resurrects a two year old thread...". not "resurrects a two year old argument..." Note the syntactic difference.
You can't read all that well can you.....

Or is it that you only read what you want to?

What a shame there wasn't an opportunity, as far back as the 70s to start down a path toward fuel economy and divorcing ourselves from middle east oil. But then again, all that government intrusion on our lives would have been too much against the Libertarian philosophy.

Better to kill brown people for cheap oil.
Most wars are fought over access to key resources. That isn't going to change any time soon. We like to kid ourselves that we've evolved beyond the law of the jungle as a species, but we haven't. If a group of lions encounters a group of cheetahs with a killed antelope, they'll force the cheetahs off the antelope and eat it themselves. They could always run an antelope down themselves, but taking it is just plain easier.
