I can't believe I'm still hearing the same stupid "war for oil" talking points now that I was hearing back when Saddam Hussein was cowering in his spider hole. I was talking to some friends earlier today and had to listen to a few of them saying Iraq was a lie, it had nothing to do with liberating anyone, it was all about oil, it was all a big joke, blah blah blah.
Well, Iraqis are free, aren't they? Their government is far from perfect, but at least it's theirs now. And where is all the oil we stole? Seems like we could sure could use some of it right about now.
The rape rooms are gone. Iraqis aren't being shoved feet first into giant shredding machines anymore. Saddam isn't funding terrorism anymore, or buying votes on the U.N. Security Council, or doing his best to acquire WMDs, or gassing his own people, or forcing droves of people to the polls at gunpoint to vote for him. But it's really all about that oil we stole that we don't seem to have anywhere, right?
