    Good Morning Family,

    I was thinking, again ... about how the Iraq war was about oil ... okay ... Bush said we won the war MONTHS ago ... so ... if we won the war, got the oil, why is gas so high?

    :heart:

    truly thunked!

    on the other hand, that is the "cost" of using war as an economic tool - every thing you were after got so messed up - you have to raise prices to get back on track!!

    Yeah, U.S. will never win this war. Hell, those idiots don't even know who they're fighting. They're flying blind over there. The only time they know who the "terrorist" are is after the "terrorists" already blew something up. The gas is still high because people are still driving. They act as if they can do nothing about it, but it's all B/S. This war will never be over, so the U.S. might as well pack it up now and leave.

    Well, since the Sunnis are split on whether they even like Iraq's new constitution, they will probably step up their efforts to support the Iraqi insurgency (some think that they are behind the entire insurgency since Saddam was Sunni). If that happens, then you can completely forget about Iraq and every drop of its oil, as well as forget about leaving Iraq any time within the next decade...

    Gas is till high because george bush (papa, son is just a mentally challenged puppet) has secured and taken control Iraq's Oil. In cahouts with the saudi roayal family (WHO CONSIDER SADDAM AN ENEMEY) and their oil tycoon friends. They have cornered the market, suppressed alternative fuel, and have reeped rediculous benefits on gas. This was planned.

    Bush was right they won the war meaning the oil companies. Saddam had been trading in euros, now the u.s. oil billionaires have won what they coveted saddams oil.

    so that the world ruling Rothchilds, Rockerfella & the other 11 families can keep stackin' their paper by making us think that oil tankers were destroyed and that there is a shortage........

    This is an old game that they continue too use on us!

    THis is the same trick they used to get Japan to attack Pearl Harbor..............

    I think the problem is we don’t got the oil.
    Iraq oil is still theirs that they sell for their country. They did not give us any. And with the war their production is way down. So supply down prices went up. Since we are paying billions of U.S. money to rebuild Iraq I think we should be repaid in oil. But they get to keep the oil revenue. But I guess if we did get the oil then the rest of the world would say we just went in to steal the oil. I think the whole idea for the States is to have the region stable for the long term and we must have friends in the region. Otherwise they could charge us more or completely cut us off. Let’s face it; the oil countries have a great deal of power over the states since we have to have the oil. What if we paid $5 a gallon for gas like some countries? We complained when gas went up to $3 a gallon. If they decided to cut us off or cut back on production what would we do when gas hit $50.00 a gallon?
