It's about bad energy policy

At it's root, the Iraq war is about access to the world's dwindling oil reserves. Everyone knows it, but no one in government will say that. There is a better way -- redirect the energy we expend trying to "secure access" into American innovation. Lets develop and SELL the energy technology of the future to the rest of the world.

Is it really an answer to SELL any thing ?

Are you a worshipper of Ayn Rand also ?
Are you a conservative, that relates society issues to class and money ?
Every thing for me and nothing for you ?

Can we get some s-muck from no wheres ville to buy more of our stuff ? What does that really serve ?

I disagree.

It's not about access, it's about control. Big difference. The U.S. doesn't need Iraq's oil, but China and India certainly do.

Good point.
The U.S. does not need China`s oil.
It is about control.

Imperial America.
Globalism is desired to be controlled, by Global Corporations.

Control of oil is it... Control is power. Power is money.

They go hand in hand

The enemy of the next phase of a good culture for America, is the Price System method.

The military/industrial/congressional complex is the enforcer, and backward entity that controls our societal template.

While there are elements in the military that understand the current dynamic, and what an alternative system would look like, it remains to be seen who will come out on top, and how that may be achieved in the coming break down of American society.

The only hope for our land area, may lie in the military wresting control from the Political Religious special interest Global system, and instituting a different type of society here.
If that does not happen, our ship of state will crash on the rocks, and sink to the bottom.
Countdown to chaos.
