PostIsrael and Oil Hegemony (Tor Guimaraes, USA, 09/06/11 5:00 am)
For those of us American citizens deprived of such important information by our empty-minded, cheap-entertainment, biased media, Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich's posting of 5 September was extremely informative. Unless someone has some contradictory evidence, it seems as if the long-suspected motivation for the Cheney/Bush Iraq war was political/military hegemony in the region and manipulation of oil wealth. But, we can't really blame Cheney for putting money above US taxpayers' interests. It is only human.
JE comments: Has anyone read Dick Cheney's book? In it I've heard that among other things, he writes about fighting in the fall of 2008 against the GM and Chrysler bailouts. Just one more reason I'm not a fan of Dick Cheney. He's the kind of guy who scares children. Grown-ups too.
