I used to think ...
.... that this war is soley about Oil but the more I read the more I think it's even worse than that. At least an out and out oil grab would be honest. But honesty isn't a commodity coming out of Washington these days.
After finding out that planning for this war PRE-DATES Sept 11, and after reading about the "New American Century Group (see Doreen Peri's post in Utterances #14161), and after finding out about Perle & Wolfowitz & Cheney et.al., and after realizing all the coprorate connections here, it's finally dawned on me (as it probably dawned on others earlier, including the French and the Germans and all the other nations in the UN opposed the the war) that this is just the BEGINNING and that the real point of this is US GLOBAL DOMINATION. We're talking EMPIRE.
Just by way of a small example I offer this quote from the New American Century's homepage (http://www.newamericancentury.org/):
"The Project for the New American Century is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to a few fundamental propositions: that American leadership is good both for America and for the world; that such leadership requires military strength, diplomatic energy and commitment to moral principle; and that too few political leaders today are making the case for global leadership."
