What the fuck do you think we are doing in Iraq?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

What do you think will happen? You think the politicians in the US are going to watch their power slip away on 10$ a gallon gas?

All I am saying is what will happen if they suddenly cut us off?
What if this happens tomorrow?
It matters a lot. Especialy if it was an internal cause that spiked the price.
We need more of this spikes to bring forward technology that exists and will break the oil monopoly.
Can you imagine a car, a vehicle that can run 15 yrs with no refill?
Technology exists.

If YOU belive that Iraq oil is STOLEN then you are out of touch with reality.
Yes, there are many people out of touch.

So naive.
They will starve.
They are more dependent on our $ then we are on their oil.

Actually, we are not stealing the oil, we are stealing the faucet. There's a lot of money to be made in the oil business in a lot of ways. Tell me, I wonder how many non-US companies will be getting contracts to rebuild oil infrastructure? And I'll let you guess who the largest oil-infrastructure firm is. And who will get the facilities management contracts to help those poor Iraqis manage all that oil they own?

If YOU are convinced of that then you live in a CUCU world of your own.

1. One step to honesty.
2. One more lie. Unless you know somebody steeling a faucet from Iraq.
3. There is a lot of money to be made anywhere work is done.
4. I do not work in that field and I do not have the info. Do you?

Yes, as a matter of fact I do. I'm a petroleum market analyst, and you're not.
