Iraq looked like a 10-birds-with-one-stone deal: For some it helped Israel and the second coming of Christ. For others it was about oil and arm sales. Apparently, the stone missed and the birds flew away. Israel is non content with the invasion of Iraq and, instead of fighting its own wars, wants Uncle Sam to do it again for them in Iran (and who knows where else.. It'll take some time to wean Israel off its newly-acquired bad habit). I'm fighting myself so that I don't offend anybody with comments on the next coming of Christ but I can't.. A god (son of God/one third of God, whatever.. who was crucified because someone ate an apple and needs lunatics to pave the way for his next coming with blood and chaos) is way too weak to find his way back. So, forget about this one for a while. Oil went all wrong.. unless the plan was to control Iraqi oil not to ease the prices for consumers but to also benefit from high prices.

You'll have to ask the Botnst about that one, since he's got it all planned out how this benefits us, or someone, or something...somewhere...somehow. Apparently, it all works out in the end, but the rest of us are all just too dumb to figure it out, so he'll reveal the true measure of his wisdom at a later undefined date. Bottom line is that Arabs and Persians can't be trusted with our oil...or maybe Israelis can't trust them with our oil...or the baby jesus needs blood. Whatever, I'm not smart or patriotic enough to ascend the oily towers where this stuff is divined and parsed by the learned sages of Neocondria

No because next is Iran then Syria then Jordan then Saudi Arabia then Egypt on and on and on until Jesus shows up and all the heathens are really dead if they don't repent.
