    Default McCain Admits We're In Iraq for Oil

    "Suck a fat one, faggot."
    -MikeL, showing off that sharp wit of his.

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    -Derrick Jensen, "What We Leave Behind"

    "You know what's weird to me is Christians who are against the death penalty. After all, if it weren't for the death penalty, we wouldn't celebrate Easter!"

    Um, it's a video. Just sharing it. There's nothing you can really argue with, no room for interpretation. He straight up says it.

    lol! It certainly isn't reflected in gas prices. We have and have had plenty of crude oil, we don't have the refineries in our own country to convert it into useful sources of energy, or at least not enough of them. If we are at war for oil alone, then we need to start killing more people faster to get these prices down, hahaha!!! Janthraxx, give it a rest. I don't believe we're fighting for oil, but hypothetically speaking, let's say we are, what is this going to change? THINK MAN THINK!!!!!!

    If we are there for just the oil then why dont we just divert it all to US refineries? Isnt Iraq still a voting member of OPEC? If so how has Iraq voted the last several OPEC meetings with regards to production?

    Is there anyone who doesn't know that we're involved in the Middle East for oil? If there is, our education system has failed. It doesn't take much critical thinking to understand our presence there.

    And how fucked up is Chris Matthews? He's either an idiot (believe that we've been in the ME for decades because of something other than oil) or he's pandering to idiots. Either way it says nothing good about him or his "journalism."

    McCain was being honest and forthright there. Anyone who is against our involvement in the Middle East should be eating up what he said and asking for more. Removing our dependence upon foreign oil returns our strategic flexibility to us. We won't have to be involved there anymore.

    How come we invaded Iraq for oil? I think we should invade Canada, eh!

    I would still say front-line army training might be another reason.

    You've never served in the military. Training and deployments are two vastly different things. One builds your strength and the other wears it down.

    I didn't mean the immediate personnelle serving in Iraq - I've meant the tactics, weapons, communication, logictics. Same thing like Germany's involvement in Spanish civil war.
    Mind you, many politicians have never served in military either .
