8. "craven political calculation" ... and perhaps O-I-L ???
Edited on Sat Jun-16-07 11:24 AM by welshTerrier2
the OP stated: "Democrats continue to vote for the war for no other reason then craven political calculation."

but perhaps they too are in bed with Big Oil ...

HAS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, AND CANDIDATES LIKE OBAMA AND CLINTON, STOOD UP LOUDLY AND CLEARLY TO PROCLAIM THAT PROCEEDS FROM IRAQI OIL BELONG TO THE IRAQI PEOPLE AND THAT THE US SHOULD NOT PRESSURE THE IRAQIS TO "PRIVATIZE" (I.E. ALLOW TO BE STOLEN) THEIR OIL ????????????????????????????

the day before the invasion of Iraq, in an effort to sell the war to the British Parliament, Tony Blair said the following:

"The United Kingdom should seek a new Security Council Resolution that would affirm... the use of all oil revenues for the benefit of the Iraqi people."

Is he still saying that? Are you hearing that as a fundamental message from a majority of Democrats? Is your candidate making this argument? Where are the Obama and Clinton cheerleaders? Will they be voicing an opinion on this in this thread? I don't think so.

for an extensive discussion of the Democrats position on the Oil Law, read this thread ...

here was the concluding paragraph from that thread:

my measure of any who seek to lead this country will point very directly at how they address this issue ... either the oil belongs to the Iraqi people and any and all contracts with Big Oil should be voided, or we, Democrats and all, are imperialists ... let's hope that is not what we're seeing ...

STOP THE WAR NOW; VOID THE OIL CONTRACTS; BRING THE TROOPS HOME: PROSECUTE THE PERPE-TRAITORS !!!
