spOILs of war

Was it and is it all about oil? Our soldiers lifes for the big oil companies' profits? DUH!

'Blood and oil; How the West the will make a killing on Iraqi oil riches'

President Bush's new strategy for Iraq: fire anyone opposed to his flawed policies and rev up the troup numbers? (Oh, and toss in another billion for street sweepers.)

Frank Rich: Surge is a sham; Forces that killed Sheehan's son now run Iraq

Saw these at Raw Story

Over at from Rep Ron Paul:

We have been in Iraq for 45 months. Many more Americans have been killed in Iraq than were killed in the first 45 months of our war in Vietnam. I was in the U.S. Air Force in 1965, and I remember well when President Johnson announced a troop surge in Vietnam to hasten victory. That war went on for another decade, and by the time we finally got out 60,000 Americans had died. God knows we should have gotten out ten years earlier. "Troop surge" meant serious escalation.
