It’s Not About Oil, Stupid, but Flattening Arab and Muslim Countries

19-09-2007 11:43

As should be obvious, the invasion and occupation of Iraq—and the coming attack against Iran and Syria—is not “largely” about oil or even Israel’s “security.” It is about flattening Arab and Muslim societies and reshuffling the charred and blood-spattered remains into splintered, emasculated, and “failed” vassal states.

Poll: More Americans Support Iraq Occupation and Mass Murder

15-09-2007 09:21

A recent Wall Street Journal-NBC News poll “suggests” Bush “may have a little more maneuvering room at a critical point in debates over war costs and troop levels...
