For all the curious, this news story is precisely why an immediate withdrawl of US troops in Iraq is a catagorically bad idea.
For the more conspiracy minded amongst us, here is something to think about. Instead of Bush attacking Iran (which would indeed be highly foolish, and political suicide to boot), imagine if Iran was to suddenly come across the border with the sixshooters blazing. All of a sudden we have a war that we didn’t start… then what are you going to do? Allow Iran to take over one of the largest oilfields in the world? Imagine if Iran takes over Iraq (which they would love to do considering their history with the late Hussein)… not so bad, right? Wrong! All of a sudden, Iran has majority control over almost a fourth of the oil supply. With the world’s dependence on oil, if Iran decides to grab the world by the crotch, it would be all too simple (thanks in large part to the cartel OPEC setting the global price on oil). You want something to fight for? How about your A/C? With “global warming” on the rise, I can’t imagine what Hillary Clinton would do if the oil stopped flowing out of the middle east. By the way, this is kind of tongue in cheek, because at last check, less than a third of our oil actually came from “over there”.
