Here we go again.

While on Facebook today, one of my so-called friends wrote some smack about Rush Limbaugh, and him being unpatriotic due to hypocrisy, and he may have a point. Whatever. I just pointed out that he doesn't like Democrats, and the next thing I know I'm brandishing my "Fuck the Middle East" sword and spewing hate allllll over the damned place. Well, I've already discussed my aggresive attitude, and this lines up nicely. But I realized that I'm still pissed.

I'm pissed about Israel, the Palestinians, the fanatical Muslims, the ignorant Christians... everybody. See, lately I've been mulling over what to do about this here blog, and I still don't have an answer, but I wanted to tone things down a bit, change direction, something. But I can't, because it's not that easy. It's things like the War in Iraq that get my blood boiling, and I have to write. Crap. So much for the "play nice" theory.

So today's point? I fucking hate the "Oil is the reason for going to Iraq" argument. It's the lamest wannabe conspiracy bullshit theory. If it truly IS the ONLY reason we're in the Middle East? Then I'm moving to Canada. Someone has to prove to me that Oil is why the Muslims hate America, and why we put Israel back on the map, and whatever. For people to think that singlemindedly about why we're in Iraq, is just stupid. Yes, I understand that oil is a resource. There happens to be oil in Viet Nam too, right? There's also oil in Venezuela! Chavez is a dick anyway. We should totally take it over.

There are lots of good reasons why we're in Iraq. We've installed a free government system there, and with hope it'll stay that way. Maybe even spark the rest of those countries to like, oh, I dunno, stop killing each other and vote in some schmuck to bitch about for 4 years or something. Then they can vote in a different schmuck later. That's what democracy is all about, the next best schmuck.

Regardless, it isn't just about oil. I mean, the genocide, the violating the UN sanctions, the not allowing WMD inspectors to see any sites whenever they would surprise inspect, I mean, the list is endless. Yet there are still the left wing folk who think the only reason we went in is because of the oil. Hell, you might as well believe we went in because George Sr. was supposed to do it the first time around.

However, I guess this oil theory explains why we're in Afghanistan then... we need cheap heroin!

You've installed a free government system there?

That is the most complete bullshit I've read in a while. The reason violence is down in Iraq, and the reason "The Surge" worked is because the American government, WITH YOUR TAX DOLLARS, made an agreement with Sunni Muslims to stop shooting at them. They effectively paid off their enemies. Period.

Read this:

The "free government" you have installed in Iraq is maddeningly corrupt, and Iraq is basically a satellite state of Iran. You know, the country just about ready to make a nuclear bomb and wipe Israel off the face of the earth. You know, the country that continues to trumpet a leader who says that Israel does not exist, that the USA is the enemy, and that capitalism has failed.

Many reasons for Iraq violating UN sanctions and such is because the U.S., for all intents and purposes, fucked them with their sanctions. They bled Iraq dry. They cut Iraq off from the rest of the world.

It was the USA who told Iraqis in the North, back in 91, to fight along with them, and take down Saddam. When Saddam started to quash the uprising that the USA called for, the USA left the Iraqis on their own. And Saddam slaughtered them. Why do you think there is so much hatred towards Americans in Iraq? The Americans betrayed the same Iraqis they said they would help liberate.

And if you don't understand that the world is heading towards one incredibly serious energy crisis, you are sorely, sorely mistaken. Iraqi oil is now for sale. It never was until America "took over." It may not only be about oil, but oil is certainly a VERY LARGE factor in all of this. There's a reason why pipelines are being built all over Afghanistan and Iraq. American understands that unless they can get their hands on oil, they are fucked. And, unfortunately, oil is largely found in countries led by some psycho mother fuckers.

The time has come to fuck all this "fuck the Democrats," and/or "fuck the Republicans," bullshit. Your country is in serious economic turmoil. As a result, the entire world is. America needs to sort its shit out, because the world needs America.

If you're looking for a great read on Middle East issues and great Middle East history, I suggest this:

It's by Robert Fisk, a writer for The Independent over in Britain, and a guy who has covered every major conflict in the region. It is phenomenal. It's over 1200 pages, but a book that you will not regret reading, no matter how long it takes.

Sorry for the chapter I wrote here. I love politics.

Enjoy your blog.
