Brilliant, if only Saddam would change his name to Megatron we could have these two duck it out against each other and no one else would get hurt.

Megatron's motto is "Peace through tyranny". That sounds more like Bush's style.

All the chickenhawks plan to "duck it out" on this war.

Of course the war's not JUST about oil. It's also about Bush Jr. trying to do what his dad didn't get the chance to. And about distracting people from how the war on terrorism is going. And about rallying the American people behind a president whom they formerly saw as an election-stealer. And about making Iraq safe for democracy (read: capitalism). And yes, it's partly about protecting America from the possibility that Saddam Hussein will use weapons of mass destruction against us.

Remind me again why this wasn't posted in the Fights Go Here forum?

But it all spins back to the middle. What was his dad trying to do? Discipline Saddam for slipping his leash. Why were we with Saddam in the first place? 1. Oil; 2. because he was fighting Iran. OK, so why were we against Iran? Because they deposed our guy the Shah and now they hate us. Why'd we impose the Shah's rule on them? Oil.

What are we doing over there at all? Oil oil oil.

But Sr. opposed the war. Anyway, W wouldn't be permitted to spend so much on resolving a family feud.

Even if it wasn't ridiculous to suggest that Iraq poses a threat to America, another terrorist attack would strengthen support for the government, so why would they want to prevent it? The US and its allies are still selling nuclear components to Iran, so it's pretty clear they're not bothered about their enemies possessing WMDs.

Actualy boorite, most of my influnce (100%) came from this book called The Threatening Storm by Kenneth Pollack. I know I shouldn't have started this argument because I've actualy only read one chapter, and it dealt mostly with the Twin Pillar polices that the US invested in Iran during the 70's or so. The regime did change, but it was like some internal coup, right?

I dunno. Like I said, I just thought there was some truth in there. The story sounded nice to me.

After all, I think we should tear the ground off Alaska and the west and pump our own oil out of our backyards.

Or better yet! How about hydro-electric/geo-thermal/harnessing-the-waves-on-the-sea-technology? Those would be awsome to have.

The US should really be more isolationist.

This war isn't ALL about oil, I agree. Bush is a sadist and a frightened child who wants to put the scary man down like he did so many quickly convicted black men in Texas.

But for Cheney it's the oil. And he and his kind are calling the shots.

That doesn't mean it's not part of Jr.'s motivation. I still strongly suspect that it is. I think he's just that type of person.


Not if he put it in those words, no.


If Osama bin Laden can pose a threat to America, so can Saddam Hussein. I don't think that makes it okay to invade Iraq before they've made any overt hostile act, of course. Anyway, even if Saddam doesn't pose a threat, I believe that some people in our government honestly think he does, and honestly think pre-emptive military action is a sensible way to address that threat. And probably don't spend much time pondering the question of how it came to pass that an Iraqi dictator would be threatening America.


Even I don't suspect them of being that sinister. Maybe I should, but I don't.

You mean Cheney's a real live person? I thought he'd died or something. He certainly looks dead to me when I see him on TV. :)

Nothing wrong with reading Pollack as long as you keep in mind where he came from: the CIA and the NSC.

For background on the CIA/MI6 coup toppling Mossadeq, you can go to the very "newspaper of record," the New York Times. They did a big article on it, heavily citing declassified CIA documents.

I pretty much agree, except that I think strip-mining Alaska is a little too exuberant. There are a couple of things you're not taking into account, though. One is that Washington is not grabbing the oil for your and my benefit. Another is that developing our own resources and leaving other people to develop theirs, though the decent thing to do, leads to something that free-market capitalists do not want: competition. "We" (meaning investors who are in a position to influence Washington) don't want France and Germany, much less a united Middle East, gearing up their production lines. It would be "bad for America."

But would it be bad for you and me? I happen to think that the best thing that could have happened to the American auto industry in the 1970s was getting its ass kicked by Japan. I think the competition has something to do with the fact that Detroit can no longer turn out crapmobiles, secure in the knowledge that we'll "buy American." Which makes me more of a free-market capitalist than George W. Bush, and I'm slightly to the left of Noam Chomsky.

The war kind of bothers me sometimes. They say Saddam is either dead or wounded, but what if they're feeding that to the media in a China-style news service? "Everything is all peaches and rose petals." I can't believe it until I see it.

And all those body doubles make it even harder...

I was wondering if, when Saddam was killed, one of the lookalikes would then take over as Saddam? That way, there would always be a Saddam. Like Mayor Richard Wilkins III, but without the business with the giant snake.

Maybe Saddam doesn't even exist and it's just a cabal of Illuminati-controlled clones.
