    Very nice Shiny, now nobody is talking about the VA, IRS, or Libya. Are you on the DNC payroll?

    Regime change. Elder Bush was once targeted in an assassination plot by Saddam Hussein. Payback is a Bitch.

    Historically we need a scapegoat or bogyman. Saddam fit the bill. We could not go after Saudi Arabia, who was behind the attacks on America because of the Oil they provided the USA. It was Saudi's who attacked us, but the Royal Family is our friend.

    Remember how our weapon's Inspector swore up and down to anyone who would listen saying that NO WMD's were in Iraq. The Bush administration tore down his reputation.

    So yes... Wars are fought for Money and Oil.

    Watch the documentary and draw your own conclusions. I posted a link. Just watch it with no pre conceived notions and an open mind.

    Surely you don't believe we went to war because a dictator wanted our president dead. Just about all of them want that. Oil and selling bombs

    The objective of the Iraq war was to increase oil prices? Is that what you're saying?

    Funny how the libs seem to forget that the Dems approved of this at the time, even going so far as demanding a second vote to make damn sure they got it on the record... (And so Kerry could be for it before he was against it)
