House Blender oddjob, also a regular at Shakes Sis, pointed Shakes to Chimpy’s latest justification for the “war on terror,” if you can f*cking believe this, from the Boston Globe:
Bush gives new reason for Iraq war
Says US must prevent oil fields from falling into hands of terrorists
President Bush answered growing antiwar protests yesterday with a fresh reason for US troops to continue fighting in Iraq: protection of the country’s vast oil fields, which he said would otherwise fall under the control of terrorist extremists.
Can his motives be any more transparent? He knows the spiraling gas prices have the potential to wreck the economy and cause misery to the working poor (pile on the fact that in October, the new bankruptcy laws go into effect).
He’s using the current gas crisis as a means to shape the intense fears, doubts and uncertainty into a public rally behind his dumb*ss policies. Bring out the old domestic psyche warfare again. It worked in 2004 with the alert scale, why not dip in that well another time?
My question is, will the sheeple fall for this crap YET AGAIN?!
