    Of course not! So why hasn't the pipeline from Canada been fast-tracked?

    As far as Iraq is concerned, both parties voted in favor of that war after impassioned speeches by both parties on the floor in Congress. I have a friend whose only son was killed in Iraq. They hold an annual money-raising event in his honor, and those thousands of dollars are given to those who spend it on treatment of wounded and maimed vets. They are the patriots, IMO!

    Old enough to know that people don't wanna sacrifice soldiers for cheap oil.

    Were you under the impression that any of the oil from the pipeline would be used by the US?

    Your attempt to place blame for Iraq does not speak to the point I made about our blood for oil policy in Iraq. I think McCain put it best, "My friends, I will have an energy policy which will eliminate our dependence on oil from Middle East that will then prevent us from having ever to send our young men and women into conflict again in the Middle East."

    The neocons didn't expect the Iraqis to fight back. After all they had no navy or airforce, We destroyed all that in the first Gulf war. They thought it would be a cakewalk.

    Well, then start pumping your private funds into a project and make us all look like fools, it's such a great idea. Whatcha' waitin' on?

    Of course not, but theres no need to given the abundance of domestic oil. We get more oil from canada and mexico than the middle east.
