Cindy Sheehan along with all of you who think you are bettering our country by protesting the War in Iraq are absolute idiots. You, your sons and daughters and anyone else who is fighting in this war or any other war made that ADULT decision to do so. Being an adult and making adult decisions also means that all the great American soldiers know the consequences of war as well. My brother, who is serving as we speak, knows he may die for his country excuse me...OUR country, but that was the decision he made and he stands by it firmly! You have the God given freedom to live in this great country we call America and that is because of the great men and women who died before you. If you are so against the war then why don't you go live somewhere like Iraq and fight another battle like not having the right to speak, no air conditioning, no car for transportation, no food, no house just to name a few. What you should be protesting since you keep bringing up the number of lives killed is a more noble cause like producing safer cars. In 2003 there were 6328 automobile accidents, 2.9 million injuries and 42643 people killed. Maybe should help fund the American Heart Society since the number 1 killer in America is heart disease. Each year 250,000 die from heart disease. Or maybe just maybe you could help America fight the war against gang violence in our teens. In LA alone there were 7288 homicides resulting from gang violence. Cindy Sheehan you are a disgrace to this country and we the proud people of America will not let you get our moral down. I love this country and so do our soldiers!

Hey there Christ
you might want to educate yourself.....I think if your BROTHER really knew (saw the written documented proof) why he was there for the all mighty DOLLAR = OIL....he will not be so willing to see friends of his BLOW UP!

SURF UP on the net:


Do you realize that at present we BUY ALL of IRAQ OIL everyday. Did you realize that NOW they are fourth largest IMPORTER! Geepers I wonder why that is?

Were you invested in the STOCK MARKET on 3/10/2000?

The USA use to be the WORLD RESERVE CURRENCY not anymore check the IMF site.

This enabled the USA to finance the great big DEFICITS!

We the USA print dollars and IT costs USA nothing.

Years ago the PETRODOLLAR was created....for OIL. (breton woods)

on 11/2000 SADDAM decided no more OIL unless it was sold in EUROS.

first barrel shipped out of IRAQ last year 2004 was shipped in DOLLARS not EUROS. The BUSH puppets switched the currency from EUROS back to USA DOLLARS.

all of the EU's countries USE MORE oil than the entire USA.

EU countries start dumping the US DOLLAR as their reserve currency (the currency to buy and sale for international trade). They start buying EUROS to build their reserves.

Inflation starts the more the dollar falls. Dollar buys LESS and LESS!
US Government doesn't include FOOD AND ENGERY in the Consumer Price Index. Shhhh don't ttell the american public that!

Smell the INFLATION for the past 4 years in your grocery bill and your energy bill.

Uncle Al removes ability of issuing any 30 year bond 3 years ago. The 30 year bond is always used a HEAD read for INFLATION. US TREASURY called in past issued 30 year BONDS with HIGH interest rates. (the bonds that have call options). Make the deficit look pretty!

Iran dumps USA DOLLAR

Venezula dumps USA DOLLAR

North Korea dumps USA DOLLAR

China dumps the USA DOLLAR (pegs their currency to a basket of float, NOT USA DOLLAR)

MORE and MORE countries dumping the USA DOLLAR

My ..MY.....even SAUDI ARABIA starts holding less and less US DOLLARS, limiting investments in the USA.


IRAN announces NEW OIL COMMODITIES exchange to open in 3/2006....only EUROS for OIL no DOLLARS.......hmmmm......View all the WHITE HOUSE negative media about IRAN lately past 1 year. Wonder if BUSH will invade IRAN before the exchange opens?

Bush was warned by Buffett and EX_FED Volvker about using the dollar as a weapon.

At present IRAQ is our 4th largest importer of oil NOW! Geee I wonder why they are blowing up the oil wells over in IRAQ?

Why are the military bases located around the pipelines in IRAQ and the newly created TAPS Afghanistan pipeline project? Hope your TAPS AFHGANISTAN pipeline (1000 ft of pipeline quicker road to export more economical) from the Caspian Sea basin gets done soon. This pipeline plan was available years ago but no country could manage to build it. Why? Because of the on going fighting in AFGHANISTAN with the Taliban. And infact our US government had many meetings with the Taliban prior to 9/11 regarding the unrest and the pipeline project.


And if you think your job is SAFE well check back in 2 years? Oh yeah and after you drop off the unemployment time frame they don't count YOU as unemployed even if you HAVE NOT FOUND A JOB. You aren't included in the governemnts unemployment numbers. These oil prices will stop the US ECONOMY dead in the tracks. 66 dollars a barrel was the inflation HIGH of the 70's at todays current prices........

Interest how about 9 percert on a 30 year bond coming to a venue near you....

SO YOU PRO BUSH SUPPORTERS ...don't forget to send him a little thank you card for all is great finance venues.
Maybe it would be less costly if the troops would have stayed AT HOME?

PS....Bush "needs" DEMOCRACY in IRAQ and AFGHANISTAN for the OIL and the safety of the Pipelines not for the people of any flavor! Think he will ever get his IRAQ democracy .....maybe if you bring back the draft add 800000 more troops. Add senators and congress individuals ship them over too. Laura Bush's skills are much needed at the Baghdad Lirary !

It's the status of the U.S. dollar and related macro-economic impacts (not merely oil per se) that's at the heart of the "noble cause" in the Middle East and elsewhere.

Sadaam's big sin had nothing whatever to do with any (purely imaginary) military threat. It was his threat to base the sale of Iraq oil resources on the Euro or a "basket" of currencies rather than on the U.S. dollar. In that respect at least, the war is already a lost cause unless they move on to "nuke" Iran as Cheney threatens to do.

The really SAD part is the so
Submitted by CALLING MILITARYT MOMS! (not verified) on Sat, 2005-08-27 15:15.
The really SAD part is the soldier who calls home speaks with his mother about all the GREAT THINGS he is DOING in IRAQ. I'm building a school and giving candy out. Soldier then belives in his duty. The mom feels proud. The mom doesn't realize that behind the CURRENCY CURTAINS what is really going on....only what the son is telling her. Most americans can't even invest their own 401K correctly let alone figure out the currency international market. They don't understand that ALL exchanges are marrried to one another. SO BUSH gets away with using these soldiers any way he wants too. As for Cheney the little red devil ....he belongs in the CASPIEN SEA burried under his oil finds!

Wait till these american military moms spent time and invest hours in to the real truth! They will realize their loved ones have been used as pawns "to try" to protect the american dollar verses euros = oil!

This reminds me of the WIZARD OF OZ!

YOU are the disgrace. Sign up and serve. They need more soldiers. Your points have no relation to this cause, and you are ill informed. Learn about the documentation that shows Americans and their Congress were lied to by this administration. So, sign up and go fight this war you love and support.

I should send you copies of international XXXXX trades from different foreign countries and then maybe your eyes would OPEN UP!


How is it that all these OTHER NATIONS SEE what is going on but you can't? Do all these nations lie? I think you best realize that you have USED as a PAWN in a financial CHESS GAME!

Love Iraqis.

Why aren't you in Iraq?

Everyone that is able bodied and supports this war should volunteer to go. Not just once but as many times as it takes to bring an end to little georges war.

It's his ego folks. He's going to go down in history as a great war preznitwit.
