MSNBC re-aired their documentary special ‘Hubris: Selling the Iraq War’; and what Dick Cheney (in particular) did is nothing short of Treasonous.
It is a disgrace that the Bush Administration isn’t being tried for treason and war crimes. Hell is eagerly waiting for all of those bastards.

Yep. As someone who was there the first time around under Bush Sr, I can say without hesitation it was 100% about the oil.

We can say without hesitation that if cluelessness was crude oil, your scalp would be crawling with Caribou.

So you're claiming we didn't "liberate" Kuwait because of all the oil they just happen to sitting on? We just did it out of the kindess of our hearts?

You're so cute when you're naive......

You're naive and stupid just like other past dem presidents.

Yeah right. We need to stop it before the answer comes in the form of a mushroom cloud. Why do you think of the 190 Nations around the world the US is such a target? Why is it that the other major countries around the world not have the war problems like the US? Why is it that the nation with only 4% of the worlds population spends 45% of all the money on war? Dumbass war monger Repub.

And those 33 other nations are also addicted to oil, just like we are.

The ONLY reason we went into Kuwait was because Sadaam's actions disrupted the free flow of oil.

MOST of the world's oil supply comes from Saudi Arabia......Saddam's next target. Who knows where he would have spread after that.........and what control's on the worlds economy.

It was about stopping Saddam from going further......period.

I guess you at the time would've said 'fk it, everyone drive electric cars. LMAO
