Title: Iraq question, only one-way out, via oil shipments
-
-
RAIN

The President hit on the question of oil resources during
one of his post-election, get-to-know-the-new-Congress,
press conferences. During that Presidential punch & joke
question and questionable-comment period, the President
noted that it would be a mistake to leave the Iraqi oil field
reserves unguarded by Americans. Adding that, terrorists
would be free to seize-control, and thus, use then against
the free world. So now, it appears, that Bush's war plan is
no longer about building a democracy, but instead, about
protecting Iraq's oil-reserves. What many predicted was a
primary reason in the run-up to the start of this war, or the
primary reason for going in the first place. Why else glean
as much false-intel and fast-track the whole war operation?
-
With no active Generals complaining, and why should they?
-
The Department of Defense, along with the Pentagon, have
both died and gone to the federal version of, budget-heaven.
-
To the tune of billions & billions of dollars for defense staff,
projects and military funding. Why would they want to give
that up for a peace-time pay-scale of just millions of dollars?
-
After all the present military budget certainly isn't getting any
additional pressures for overspending on troop equipment and
for the training, or equipping, of Iraqi security forces. Just the
opposite in-fact. But, billions more keep falling into that dark
black-hole called US defense. Less for veterans. Even less for
domestic programs for the poor and homeless. Here & abroad.
-
Have a Happy Thanksgiving Mr. President. I can't wait till the
ghost-of-Christmas past drops by the White House. Respectful
in all of it's glory mind you. God Bless each & every one of us.
