It Was the Oil, Stupid

By Cindy Sheehan
Day 25
The Peaceful Occupation of Crawford

"If Zarqawi and bin Laden gain control of Iraq, they would create a new training ground for future terrorist attacks," Bush said. "They'd seize oil fields to fund their ambitions. They could recruit more terrorists by claiming a historic victory over the United States and our coalition."(George Bush, August 30, 2005 in San Diego.)

So it is official, Casey had his blood shed in Iraq for OIL. He died so we could pay over 3.00/gallon for gas. Like I suspected all along, my dear, sweet son: almost 1900 others; and tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis died so the oil fields wouldn't "fall into the hands of terrorists" and so George and his immoral band of greedy robber barons could become wealthier. Like I have said all along: how can these people sleep at night and how can they choke down their food knowing it is purchased off of the flesh and blood of others? We have found our "Noble Cause." And it is OIL. This man and his handlers need to be stopped.

Well, George and I are leaving Crawford today. George is finished playing golf and telling his fables in San Diego , so he will be heading to Louisiana to see the devastation that his environmental policies and his killing policies have caused. Recovery would be easier and much quicker if almost ½ of the three states involved National Guard were not in Iraq. All of the National Guard's equipment is in Iraq also. Plus, with the 2 billion dollars a week that the private contractors are siphoning from our treasury, how are we going to pay for helping our own citizens in Louisiana , Mississippi, and Alabama? And, should I dare say "global warming?" and be branded as a "conspiracy theorist" on top of everything else the reich-wingers say about me.

We are now packing up Camp Casey and leaving Crawford and heading to George's place of employment. He wouldn't talk to us, his employers, while we were here to give him his "job evaluation," so we must go to him to have our little chat.

I just want to thank a few people and groups for their support, help, and love while we have been here in Crawford. So many people made the Camp Casey experience possible and so successful. If I miss someone, I am so sorry: that is the difficult thing about thanking people. I love you all, even if I don't remember to thank you!!

My sister: Dede Miller: My kids' second mom who is always by my side and supports me 100% in whatever I do. My cause is her cause, and I couldn't do what I do without her.

Carly, Andy, and Janey: Who would love to see more of their mom, but who understand that we are trying to save their future by what we do. I love you guys, and I will see you very, very soon (yea!!) I couldn't do what I do without their love and support.

The Crawford Peace House: I got an email from Hadi Jawad the day that I decided to come and camp in Crawford and he pledged the help and support of the Peace House. At that time, they only had a few bucks in their checking account and the phone was turned off. Now, thanks to America, they have been able to keep Camp Casey going and they will be able to continue their good works indefinitely. Thanks to John Wolf who had the vision for peace in Crawford and I think that Camp Casey was a fulfillment of his vision. They are going to make a garden and call it "The Casey Sheehan Memorial Peace Garden." What a tribute to my son.

Code Pink: Jodie Evans and Tiffany and Alicia were the first ones here on Monday 08/08 to jump in and save me from going crazy and hopping on one of the trains that runs past the Peace House and pulling an "Agatha Christie." Code Pink also worked tirelessly (and I mean tirelessly) outside of Camp Casey.

MoveOn: For organizing the highly successful candlelight vigils.

Lisa Fithian: For all the organizing work she did behind the scenes.

GSFP, IVAW, MFSO, AND VFP: Our organizations with "skin in the game" for all of their support, presence, love, and help.

Bill Mitchell: Bill's son Mike, was KIA in the same battle as Casey and he was the first GSFP member to come to Camp Casey and take some of the heat off of me. He found a new love at Camp Casey (one of our miracles) and I am sooo happy about that. Plus, Bill is one of my most ardent supporters and he just gets in the middle of things, digs in, and helps wherever. I love him and he and his family will be parts of our family forever.

Fred Mattlage: For donating the amazing piece of land for our use that allowed Camp Casey to expand to include thousands.

Air America: The Morning Sedition, Randi Rhodes, Mike Malloy, and Laura Flanders. Thank you for your support . Ed Schultz belongs there, too, although he is not affiliated with Air America Radio. Amy Goodman was here, too!

The bloggers on The Daily Kos (and most bloggers in general): I would read their comments everyday after I posted my diary and I was always heartened and encouraged by their remarks. After all of the negativity, their positivity gave me strength to go on. In addition, the first night we were in Crawford, and being harassed by the SS, they were posting things and getting the word out that we were there alone and defenseless, which may have saved our lives, or saved us from being injured, or harassed out of there.

So many other people: The Camp Casey volunteers…literally hundreds. The more than 10,000 people who came through CC. Ann Wright who kept CC going. Arianna Huffington for her advice and support. Joan Baez who kept CC's spirits alive while I was in California attending to my sick mother. George Bush for not meeting with me on August 6th. Martin Sheen for his support and presence. A.I.M for Dennis Banks and Russell Means. Gary Hart, John Conyers, Maxine Waters, Barbara Lee, Sheila Jackson Lee, Jan Schakowsky, Dennis Kucinich, Frank Pallone, Lynn Woolsey, Chuck Hagel, Ralph Nader, Jim McDermott, Walter Jones, Charlie Rangel and the other politicos who either came to CC, or called me to offer their support and love. I know I am forgetting some, but thanks to you all. Joe Wilson and his family for paving the way for me to be able to ignore and dismiss the reich-wing smear machine who always tried to marginalize and discredit me by exaggerating or twisting my words and lying about me. The clergy who were there with their love and support: Rabbi Arthur Waskow, Rabbi Dennis Shulman; Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev. Bob Edgars, Rev. Jesse Jackson (who prayed bed time prayers with me), Rita Brock, etc.

There were so many good people who donated money, goods, or services who want to be kept anonymous.

But especially to Americans who resonated with Camp Casey and gave us prayers, support, money, love and most of all hope for the future.

We will take our country back. And it will be a country that we want back.

God Bless America!!!!

Well, I guess you did not read what I wrote. It was not
just all the qualifiers that I base my opinion on. There is data that contradicts the prediction from global warming peolple. There are many scientists who do not agree with the theory. The computer program uses econmic prognostications for the next 100 years. Doesn't that bother anyone

So no, the report itself is not the only reason why I do not
give the credence to theory as so many others. While I do think it is something that needs to be studied, I am not a "believer" and certainly would not want to enact the Kyoto treaty. BTW: If global is such a slam dunk, why did the senate reject the treaty 95-0.

Yes, scientific reports do contain qualifiers. However, it is the number
and the context of the qualifiers. If you are familiar with the process
by which the report submitted to the President was prepared, then I assume
you are also aware that some of scientists on the panel were not allowed
to present a dissenting opinion: i.e., they stopped an opposing

Is this good science?

As far as the conclusion and judgements of others (e.g., Ms. Sheehan) is concerned,
I do respect the right of people to speak, and to discuss scientific theories. But
Ms. Sheehan states -- as a fact -- that President Bush's policies are direcetly responsible
for Katrina.

This is not an assetion supported by science. Period.

That is what I object to.

Its not here later, its here RIGHT NOW!!!!!

And sorry buddy, but this ain't no realm of INTELLIGENT DESIGN!!!!!

This is what our thirst for oil has done to the world, and the oil gas emissions CREATE in YOUR atmosphere and the weather thats killing thousands and can kill you also!!!!

Do you like the RESULT of these policies, moron!????!?!? The entire war in IRAQ was done to get and control oil, weather real terrorists stopped them or not. The entire GUTTING of the FEMA funding for disasters was done for oil companies.

All those people DEAD, because FEMA didn't have the supplies they needed. Are you happy punks? OIL HAS BEEN WRECKING OUR WORLD, GLOBAL WARMING IS A REALITY!!!!


Global warming is nothing but a cycle that the Earth goes through every 10,000ish years. Look in a science book and read up on the ice ages we've had (16 known) and then look at what happened in between them....the Earth warmed at that. Yes, there is the possibility that gas emissions are going into the atmosphere but also realize that the gases aren't going to effect you or your children (this is an assumption that you have or will have children) and I don't think that they will care given the way parents are currently raising their kids. Anyways, when you get offline go read a book and then come back and realize just how stupid you are.

Of High SCHOOL!?!???

I can't believe you buy that creationist BULLSHIT!!!!! My dad also is a scientist, Global Warming is a REALITY!!!!! It is not just some TREND you moron, its causing horrific weather all over the place.

In the south its destructive holocaust hurricaines and more. Out in the west its desert stretched drenching heat!!!

110 degrees here!!!! ONE HUNDRED AND TEN DEGREES!!!!! Its not a joke, this isn't intelligent design.

Please get the facts for your own sake, oil emissions cause and have accelerated warming. Watch a movie sometime too....called day after tomorrow.


It's 110 because it's SUMMER, asshole!


What about when it is 120?

What about the GOLF BALL sized snow falling in australia right now?

Christ, this is what is wrong with you people. Not reading the science. Yeah, we can't just boycott OIL but we can sure move away from it to energy independence.

Hydrogen fuels and other alternatives have been around for over 10 years, and because of the oil company greed we haven't even taken advantage of it. Cars could be running on pure electricity within a year or less.


Hey moron... know why snow is falling in Australia? There's this thing called the equator... it flips the seasons. When it's spring here, it's fall there... which means if it's summer here then...

It's winter there.

do the math, moron. Oh and snow falls in flakes, not balls. You're thinking hail. And if hydrogen and other fuels have been around since '95, how come Clinton didn't do something? He's your hero, and friend of the environment... where was he?

Oh, and writing in caps makes you look like a 5-year old, by the way.

At least they dumped millions of dollars into alternative energy conservation, something your hero never even CONSIDERED doing jayz.

You're a real laugh buddy when a disaster plows through destroying the southern states, which could have been prevented had the assholes not thrown it away in Iraq.


Now Iraq caused the hurricane? How could we have prevented or stopped the Hurricane? After all, if we can make it, we can stop it, right?

You're fun to mess with.

It says the FEMA Federal Army program funding was GUTTED!!!!!

Gutted and poured into IRAQ, when they were begging for it to replace all the LEEVYS!!!!

The LEEVYS preventing the water from spilling everywhere and flooding! The disaster could have been prevented, had we used that money there and had the national GUARD!!!! HOLY SHIT this is amazing.

Doug E

You spelled "LEEVYS" incorrectly. It's levee.

Tom (the one from High School)

You wonder why it hits 120 degrees in the damn desert? It's summer, you piss-ignorant jackass!

Can you pick another argument other than "OIL" because it seems to be the only argument you have against everybody elses completly different topics? And to nag a bit more please get your CAPS Lock fixed (aka removed) to use it like you are is unprofessional and immature. Yes, we realize in cyber space it is meant to put more emphasis on a point but to use it en-masse is just a waste of time since everyone already realizes that you're very involved in this topic. By the way the most inexpensive way to make hydrogen is using natural gas or fossil fuels in general, and by inexpensive I mean ridiculous enough that companies don't want to invest in it just like solar power. Solar power can do it but it too is incredibly expensive for companies to invest in. And then the vehicles themselves are incredibly expensive (roughly 10x the cost of a typical car now) so the "common man" would not be able to afford it.

Also: "A simple chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen generates energy, which can be used to power a car producing only water, not exhaust fumes. With a new national commitment, our scientists and engineers will overcome obstacles to taking these cars from laboratory to showroom so that the first car driven by a child born today could be powered by hydrogen, and pollution-free. Join me in this important innovation to make our air significantly cleaner, and our country much less dependent on foreign sources of energy."

— President Bush, State of the Union Address, January 28, 2003

And here's a quote from National Geographic that re-enforces what I said: "Scientists have known for a long time how to split water into its two elements, oxygen and hydrogen. But the problem is that the process requires electricity—typically derived from fossil fuels—which makes the process counterproductive and expensive."

BTW: Telling me to go watch a Hollywood movie taken way out of control to fix what I have learned in the Public School system, you are just digging yourself into a rut Doug

Tom B. (High School Graduate)

That fact that your comments are laced with profanities automatically calls into question your credibility. And I have not read anything related to creationism or intelligent design. So I do not know where you are coming from. One person posted that there have been ice ages in the past and you say "I can't believe you buy that creationist ...!!!"

Excuse me! I thought that ice ages occuring millions of years ago was contraty to creationism. So it seems your ignorance is showing.

And as far as the "Day After Tomorrow" is concerned: cool special effects -- bad science. Ask any scienctist.

You called that one man, hit the nail right on the head, I am just out of high school and now I'm in my first year of college, would you like to know what I'm studying? I'll give you a hint it starts with Forestry and ends in Technology. I'm doing a 2 year degree, I'm going for an Associates Degree but plan on continuing my work afterwards. I'll sum up my course schedule for you, Year 1: Learn about trees and how to regenerate them properly to maintain them as a renewable resource. Year 2: Cut them down.
I never said my father was a scientist but I'm going to assume (again) that you, at some point, mentioned you were, and I now know your father is so I congratulate both of you on your accomplishments. I also never said that emissions weren't accelerating the process or Global Warming and yes Global Warming is a reality because of that "trend" of the Ice Ages. I also noticed the amount of time between your other posts, it seems as though you never got offline like I suggested, you obviously feel greatly for the subject at hand and would most likely be better off in this situation if you made yourself knowledgeable of both sides of it. I am shocked at your continued effort to break others of their opinions and feel that, you, as a professional should look at the situation as a whole rather than your aspect. I am not trying to convince you that my thoughts should be yours exactly, I'm just trying to give you another way of thinking about whatever it is you think about.

Tom B. signing off with a High School Education

If you and your neo-coM friends would just take a deep breath and not exhale, think of how much greenhouse gases would no longe be released into the atmosphere.


If oil is the problem, then I suggest you stop using gasoline. Stop buying plastics.
Stop using any product that is based on petroleum.

If you believe that our thirst for oil is the root cause for all problems in the world,
then you must stop using petroleum based products.

Othewise, you are part of the problem.

For those who worship before the altar of enviromentalism, I have two simple questions for your simple minds.
1. If the Kyoto Protocols are so damned important, why is it that Bill Clinton refused to sign on the dotted line?
2. Why is it the US Senate voted 99-0 to reject bringing those same protocols to a ratification vote?

Have you ever heard the term "God's Green Earth"? If you are a Christian, then you probably believe that God gave us our earth and all that we have. So if you worship at the Altar of Environmentalism, doesn't that mean that you are worshiping a gift from God? When you respect "Mother Nature" aren't you showing your respect and gratitude to God? And if you are NOT a "tree hugger" and "Environmental Wacko", does that mean that you are a devil worshiper who hates God and hates our planet which is the foundation of the gift of life that God has given us?

I believe that people who hate those that love God, and love and repect our planet, are evil. They thrive on hate. They love to call people hate-filled names. They love hate. They pollute the very planet that gives them life and try to hurt people who have opposite views. It's kind of psychotic.

Doug is right, folks. Too bad the right wingers live in their fantasy world. Wonder what it will take for them to wake up?

I guess Ms Sheehan's 15 minutes of fame are fading fast. It is too bad you shamed the honor of your hero son. Hopefully the only thing anyone remembers about this useless display is how her son defended his mom's right to trash the military and his honor.

I guess I'll start by listing what John Gibson pointed out in a recent "My Word" statement about Iraq and Al-Qaeda:

"The 9/11 commission reported that bin Laden was willing to explore possibilities of cooperation with Iraq.
Bin Laden met with a senior Iraqi intelligence officer in the Sudan in 1994 or 1995.
Bin Laden sent out a number of feelers to Iraq offering cooperation.
In 1998, Iraq took the initiative and in support of bin Laden's fatwa against the U.S., two Al Qaeda members went to Iraq for meetings.
Same year and Iraqi delegation went to Afghanistan to meet with bin Laden.
More meetings in 1999 and Iraqi officials offered bin Laden a safe haven.
This is all from the 9/11 commission report, mind you.
And in late June 2004, a member of the commission said new information suggested a lieutenant colonel in Saddam's Fedayeen was a prominent member of Al Qaeda.
Not to mention that Zarqawi (search) was operating in Iraq well before the U.S. invasion."

The war was not about oil. We had multiple reasons for going into Iraq, including Saddam's terrorism connections (he also paid money to Palestinian suicide bombers), his slaughter and persecution of non-Sunni's, his incomplete cooperation with weapons inspections, and the impact on surrounding countries.

Next, on the hurricane: this is not a global warming issue. This is a natural pattern of the Atlantic Ocean. Over decades, the temperatures go through a warming and cooling cycle, and currently they are naturally warming. Don't believe me? I'm not surprised. However, I'm quoting scientists in The New York Times; I hope you'll believe them.

Finally, on your protest. I'm sorry for your loss. My cousin spent a year in Iraq with the Army, and I don't want to think of how I'd feel if he didn't make it back. When I first heard of your protest, I didn't agree with you, but I respected your right to protest. However, I now know the full story. You did not suddenly turn against the war; you were against it all along. You did get a meeting with the President before your protest (and according to your newspaper quote, did not have any complaints). Finally, you are not acting on your own accord. There are too many people and groups involved in this event to continue to call it a mother's protest.

President Bush lied to us? No, he told us the truth as he, and the world, knew it. If you want to meet the President who lied about the conditions in Iraq, protest to meet with Saddam Hussein.

However, you have lied to us by portraying yourself as a sympathetic figure while hiding your past actions. Now people are calling you on it. In fact, you even cut off an NPR interview when your past was brought up.

Lastly, I want to call you on your support of the troops. The last thing most troops want to hear is that you want to support them by bringing them home (I know, I recently graduated from a senior military college). If you want to support the troops, support their mission, for that is what they ask of us. I see you don't support the mission, so please stop saying you support the troops.

If you actually read this far, thank you.

Every single lie you have ever stated has been proven, documentarily FALSE:



Dougie, Dougie, Dougie,

Quit saying "proven false" because it makes you look so silly, especially when you insist on ALL CAPS and !!!! marks that seem to make you feel like it makes the point true. You are wrong (can I put that in all CAPS so as to make it correct?). Your "proof" is wrong, and just because some far-left-has-a-bag-of-crap-to-carry wonk makes a statement does not mean "proof". You must not have done well in logic in college--oh I'm sorry you probably couldn't go to college because Bush and Rove conspired to make you smoke dope and snort coke through high school so you missed class and tests and weren't able to get in anywhere so now you write these rants on the extra computer at the coffee house where you work. I will agree we need to end the war, we need to end it by kicking out the media and letting the military do what it needs to do, how it needs to do it to whom it needs doing to without looking over their shoulder. Find them, kill them and let the millions of Iraqis still in fear of the "insurgents" get on with running their country---and selling us oil.





Or is he coming to Iraq to take our OIL from the USA?

Or does that mean its all BULLSHIT???!

Perhaps you should read this:

Proof its a lie, you are a total TOOL to not recognize it was a LIE buddy!!!!! A total tool and a fool!


The whole world thought that Saddam had this sort of stuff because he had it before and he postured that he still had it. Was the whole world wrong? We may never know for sure. Read my original post again, and look at the connections laid out there, then tell me Saddam had no interest in terrorism.

That post proves nothing. All it says is that Bush knew that Iraq was a threat well before the war. That is what he, and the world, knew.

On the point about oil, I'll defer to the person who said, "This does not say they'd seize oil we want, this says they would seize oil and use the funds to train people to kill us. Get a grip!" Make sure you read the quote itself, not what you want it to say.

In the meantime, what proves all my "lies" as such?

"If Zarqawi and bin Laden gain control of Iraq, they would create a new training ground for future terrorist attacks," Bush said. "They'd seize oil fields to fund their ambitions. They could recruit more terrorists by claiming a historic victory over the United States and our coalition."(George Bush, August 30, 2005 in San Diego.) So it is official,....etc
This does not say they'd seize oil we want, this says they would seize oil and use the funds to train people to kill us. Get a grip!


and it works wonders, Cindy.

I am very sorry for your loss, ma'am, but your son Casey was an adult, and he made an adult decision. He chose to reenlist knowing he would almost certainly be stationed in Iraq, and furthermore volunteered for the mission during which he was killed. For that he is a true hero, and deserving of everyone's respect. Surely he discussed his decision with you beforehand. During that discussion, did he happen to mention that there are some things worth risking one's life for? Certainly if he did not believe the war in Iraq was one of them, he never would have reenlisted. Or do you think so little of your son that you believe he was duped?

Again, you have my condolences for your loss. Though I strongly disagree with your actions, I hope this past month has helped you to get closure.

As a health care professional, I would suggest that Mrs. Sheehan's family try very hard to get her some professional help as soon as possbile.

Of course it was for oil, IDIOT!!!!

The whole speech is online. He gave it to the veterans in San Diego trying to grin inbetween. "Oh no, the terrorists would get the oil"

Aka: Even if there were any terrorists at all there, which was all bullshit, they were protecting oil period. They were there to protect the oil, PROTECT ALL THE OIL FIELDS!!!!!

DOES IT SINK IN YET? Fucking morons.

Doug E.

Doug E., I would recommend you seek some help as well. I believe that your ranting at me and calling us that do not subscribe to your conspiracy theories F****** Morons is seriously at the root of your disorder -- displacement based on anger. What a shame to waste one's time and energy to vent over tired and proven lies.

Why don't you wake the hell up yourself and look in the mirror!????!??




So why did we go into IRAQ?

Well you moron, if you read the latest speech you see the president admit he wanted the OIL FIELDS!!!! AMAZING!!!! And he believes sincerely "im sure" that the terrorists will take "his" oil fields.

The terrorists that aren't in Iraq? The civilians? Oh right, YOU'RE DEAD WRONG!!!!




Yea, Mike, didn't you watch the movie? Michael Moore said you and Bush are a liar, so it must be true.

She abandoned them to take up permanent residence in the Leftisphere.

to m hudson, you obviously are an idiot, I hope you are never my health care professional--grow up!

your son died a hero, in a war against terrorism that HE volunteered for. let it go, your only making yourself look less and less credible and more stupid.
just because %100 percent of the severe left is behind you does not mean that %100 percent of the country is. everyone i know dislikes you as a person, and i personally think you are doing more to hurt my country than you think.



Any terror had NOTHING TO DO WITH BIN LADEN!!!!HE WAS NEVER THERE!!! BIN LADEN MIGHT BE DEAD!! It was all a world of BULLSHIT, period!!

And the greenhouse gas emissions brought on by oil have accelerated global warming, which is killing thousands more:

Maybe that will click the stick with you!??? He volunteered because he thought he had no choice, but to protect the country in an unjust war. A bunch of other bullshit followed and the bottom line is he DIED for their oil!!


"any terro had nothing to do with Bin Laden"?? Are you serious? Do you live in a cave like that neanderthal? Do you have the balls to go to Mid-town and say this in front of the families and friends of 9/11 victims? Are you so incredibly myopic in your hate of our country that you seriously believe this crap that Sorros and others have fed to you? By the way if you work, how did you get to work today? How do you heat your home? How much oil do you consume? Of course part of it is about oil, look at our economy that supports you and every American, German, Mexican, Canadian, Japanese, French, ___fill in the blank person in the world it is all oil dependent idiot. You advocate Islamic fascists, who would rather kill you than have your support simply because you are not an Islamic fascist, controlling a significant portion of the world's oil supply? Oh that would be real nice for everyone. If it were to happen you can forget about all the handouts you liberals give to all the special interest groups because this country and every other country on earth would have such economic devastation it might make even you appreciate economics 101. What an idiot you are. (by the way USING ALL CAPS doesn't make you right, it makes you look dumb).


My god you people, the "terrorists" were mostly Iraqi civilians who didn't want all their fuel STOLEN!!!!!

The few terrorists and syrian fascists there had nothing to do with 9/11!!!!! AND BIN LADEN IS NOT THERE, OR PROBABLY NOT EVEN ALIVE!!!!!

Holy crap, ditto heads get all the facts.


You are cordially invited to attend the circle-jerk Friday evening following the "Bush is Hitler" - "Republicans are Nazis" gathering at your local International Workers of the World meeting hall. Bring your feather boa because the festivities will be filmed for airing on al-Gorezeera TV.


Really, then what were those 3 terrorist camps for?

Hey Dugie,

Try a mydol it may calm you down, and don't do any cooking for awhile you might hurt yourself with a knife in your agitated state. When we go into Syria I suggest you just check into someplace until we've liberated their people as well. I need to go get into my 11 MPG (on the HIGHWAY!!!!!!) Dodge 4x4 pickup to drive down the block to get my kids from karate class so I can take them across the street to the NRA meeting. Bless you, inshallah, Mozel tof Dugie.

Doug you are a quack.

First of all if we were there for oil, why is gasoline at $3+/gallon? Oh yeah because we got it with a Hurricane that GWB caused right? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! You people are so out of your minds it blows me away. Secondly, the last time we built a refinery was 20 years ago because people like you won't let up build any. So as our demand rises our supply does not and the price goes up. And the fact that China (the worlds population leader) is becoming more developed and they are demanding more oil the over all supply of oil goes down also and drives up the price. But you wouldn't understand that, you probably work for the government? Teacher???? The other thing I love is the fact that you lefties bitch all the time about greenhouse gases that in your estimates is killing 1000's of people. Yet, you really smart lefties (us righties are stupid right?) never come up with a solution. So us in this world looking to make a profit will keep building gasoline powered vehicles until you intellects on the left come up with a solution.

I love how you people try to quote the Downing Street Memos. It is histarical. A document that was a typed copy of "a photocopy of an origianl document" and it just so happens that the photocopies of the "originals" were destroyed to block any police investigation? Come on, that has Dan Rather written all over it. No wonder why your left loving media won't jump on this... It is a hoax and you know it. And the fact that they were releaed weeks before the UK elections was just the icing on the cake. And you wonder why we keep winning elections...

Her son died a hero, like it or not. We aren't getting any OIL from Iraq you quack. I really love reading your postings, they are usually more hate filled than most. You try real hard to sound "legit" but your research is bogus and your words are idiotic.

You make yourself look like an a$$hole everyday.

Keep up the good work,

Richie "The Right Wing Kook" Rich



You read it and weep bub, I can't believe you actually think the downing street didn't happen!!!! TONY BLAIR EVEN ADMITTED IT HAPPENED!!!!!

You are in TOTAL, COMPLETE DENIAL!!!! You know why the gas prices are through the roof?!?? PEAK OIL!!!!!

We are controlling the price gouging of oil, especially because the iraqis keep blowing it up since they don't want us stealing it!!!!

Isn't that astonishing!??? Oh I forgot its not INTELLIGENT "design" right?


You stick to reading your US hating media and I'll stick to the truth.

I beleive it is you that are in denial. Show me where Blair actually admits that this re-type is a legitamate document? he admitted that some talks that took place before the UN resolution 1441 but never admitted to the fact that we "fixed" information to mislead the world. You are an idiot. Keep looking for something to back you up.

Peak Oil, huh? We are controlling gas prices? So what you are saying is that the corporate run Right WANTS gas prices to go up and possibly run our country into a recession? I want to hear you say this. If we are controlling prices and controlled by greed, gas would be $1/gallon so that all industries could prosper, consumer spending would explode and our collective portfolios would skyrocket. I see you have no understanding of the economy and how it works. Not in the LEAST. Have you seen gas prices in Europe and the UK for the last 20 years?

So where are your responses to my first posting? What about you libs coming up with an alternative? You had 8 years during the Clinton Admin to do this? I bet somehow Bush stopped this, right?

Doug you are still making yourself look like an a$$hole and a dumba$$ at the same time.

Richie "The Right Wing Kook" Rich


It makes more money for the OIL companies and their profiteers when they price gouge, since we are in PEAK OIL time!!!!

They don't care if the country goes into recession, since it is called price gouging!!!! LOOK UP WHAT HAPPENED IN THE 80S BUB!!!!

And LOL you can't be serious!!! The downing street memos were admitted to be legitimate multiple times!!!! By Tony Blair himself!!!!

You are DEAD WRONG, and the facts speak for themselves since the facts were fixed!!!


Iraqi's aren't blowing up their oil Einstein. it is all they have, why in the world would they do that?

We aren't there for oil and never were.
