The primary reason W. Bush was correct...

Oil. We need it, they have it, we must have more control in the new demand age with China and India breathing down our necks. We have the world's most potent arsenal, why not use what we have? Is it so bad to be the bully and push our way in order to make the world more habitable for 2nd and 1rst world economies? Is it so bad to try to desperately remain number one when sometimes blatant grabs work? Diplomacy only goes so far. What if history proves W. was correct?

Have you been trying to outurinate your wolves?
Are you actually saying that those ragheads are living, oops let me correct this-- are squatting on a land that holds "our" oil?

With that theory, why not invade Canada? There is just as much oil, if not more, less travel time, and only 30 million very polite people to deal with.
Just remember to bring a tuque.

1973 Lyrics
Artist(Band):James Blunt

Simona
You're getting older
Your journey's been
Etched on your skin

Simona
Wish I had known that
What seemed so strong
Has been and gone

I would call you up every Saturday night
And we both stayed out 'til the morning light
And we sang, "Here we go again"
And though time goes by
I will always be
In a club with you
In 1973
Singing "Here we go again"

Simona
Wish I was sober
So I could see clearly now
The rain has gone

Simona
I guess it's over
My memory plays our tune
The same old song

I would call you up every Saturday night
And we both stayed out 'til the morning light
And we sang, "Here we go again"
And though time goes by
I will always be
In a club with you
In 1973
Singing "Here we go again"

I would call you up every Saturday night
And we both stayed out 'til the morning light
And we sang, "Here we go again"
And though time goes by
I will always be
In a club with you
In 1973
Singing "Here we go again"

I would call you up every Saturday night
And we both stayed out 'til the morning light
And we sang, "Here we go again"
And though time goes by
I will always be
In a club with you
In 1973
Singing "Here we go again"

And though time goes by
I will always be
In a club with you
In 1973

We've already tried that. Twice. Got our butts kicked. Twice.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.
