i wish the best to your mom.

you won't find any more remarks from me. you clearly don't take the time to read or think. my point to benzo about my degree was a remark to a friend about something he alrteady knows and we have discussed many times before. if you want to jump in go ahead, but i will undoubtedly ignore you as the comment wasn't made to you in the first place.

My question is simple, can you backup your statement that we started a war over oil....

I have a problemn when someone has some good thoughts on a subject but then ends it with a statement that is questionable at the very least

I think this is a very valid concern to be honest and one of the things I'm very much against. If you allow one side to speak, the other side should be able to retort or speak just as much. The fact that there is the possibility of censorship goes against the founding principles of the country.

all that talk and you said nothing. I really do not care who you were talking to, you made a statement about the us starting a war for oil. the fact that you cannot backup that bs is what I am pointing out to everyone...

my last post on the subject...




yes, it's questionable, not fact.

that said, i didn't state it as fact, per se. not any more than we're going in after sadam's wmd's' was fact.

imo, the geopolitical interests of the us in that region are about oil. always have been.

it goes back, in the short term, to the bush (HW) administration's ties with the house of saud, and their dealings in saudia arabia and egypt.

again, read confessions of an economic hitman. all the facts you need are there. of course there are many other books on the subject, but that one is also quite entertaining.

i'm not going to write a thesis on it here. it's a well documented argument. no, it's not fact, but it's readily available.
