Bush: Blood for Oil, After All

Something I am hearing very little about in regards to Bush's speech that compares WWII and Iraq if the fact that he gave an entirely new (officially, anyway) rationale for being in Iraq.

And it didn't come from some left-wing nut or conspiracy theorist, it came from the President of the United States of America.

The new reason? Oil.

According to the

President Bush went on to say he was set up for 9/11 by every President since Carter (but not his dad, mind you), and talked about how the US was perceived as weak, and that was why we were attacked on 9/11.

Meanwhile, repeating something doesn't make it true, and there were no ties to 9/11 in Iraq. The constant reference is not only intellectually dishonest, it is retarded to keep doing it when th public simply knows better.

So let's recap the reasons for going to war with Iraq, in all their ever-changing splendor. WMDs were first, which was, as we all know, false. Then it was terrorist ties, which was false. Then, it was the liberation of the Iraqi people out from underneath a tyrant, which is true, but evidently not good enough, because then it changed to nation building, and now protecting the oil supplies of Iraq.

For all you creationists, this is called evolution. Eventually, if you wait around long enough, the true nature of a thing comes out naturally, by the process of changing to fit its environment.

And for a guy who thinks evolution is hocus pocus but an invisible man in the clouds is a good alternative 'theory', Bush is a superb argument for evolution.
