    Yes, it's all about oil, Andablue. That's why the US supports Israel over every other mid East country.. It's all about oil.

    Or perhaps the US isn't helping the rebels in Libya now because it's all about oil. Or should they overthrow Gadaffi because it's all about oil? You Lefties should have the inside scoop..

    The Leftists know Iraq was all about oil as well, which is why gas prices in the States is selling for less than $.50 a gallon right now. Can't get anything past you guys!

    Terrorism is just a cover story so the NeoCons, can finish executing Dick Cheneys energy policy.

    "The Energy Task Force, officially the National Energy Policy Development Group, was a task force created by then-president George W. Bush during his second week in office. Vice President Dick Cheney was named chairman. This group was intended to “develop a national energy policy designed to help the private sector, and, as necessary and appropriate, State and local governments, promote dependable, affordable, and environmentally sound production and distribution of energy for the future."

    Thanks for the information, Kane. I really didn't suspect that at all.

    That's so like them, isn't it?

    You think it might be in their DNA?

    Leiberman became a Republican , and Diane Feinstiens family has a mult million dollar security consulting gig.

    Like in Michael Moore's Capitalism, A Love Story, All the senators got million dollar loans from Countrywide before it fell,because they had special access,, and were on a freinds of the CEO list for special instant approval. They didnt have to pay back the loans either.

    So the congress are profiting off these schemes directly, like the one guy who owns the airport scanner company

    I thought Lieberman became an independent, not Conservative, but you're probably right. What about Feinstein? What do you think of her? I hear she's got lot of money.

    You ain't too bright, Grant. Never have been. My comment was not an assertion, but an invitation for you to actually debate the issue rather than float us a few more lines of rhetoric. What si the motivation for the continuing Afghan operation? What are the aims? What are the milestones for judging whether the operation is succeeding? How are NATO assessing the situation and when will we know that they have achieved their aims?

    The ongoing problem of this Afghan adventure is that no one really has an idea of what is achievable in the long term nor whether or not those goals are coming closer or receding into the distance. All tactics, no strategy.

    Oh, and btw, US gas prices may be higher than $0.50 a gallon, but they are still less than half what most of the rest of the developed world is paying. We're paying $7 a gallon, the UK and France are paying over $8, Sweden, Norway and Switzerland over $9. You?

    These questions were raised in order to debate the issue? When?? We can discuss this certainly, but debating whether the Iraqi or Afghan involvement is "All About Oil" is like debating where BHO was born or whether Paul McCartney is dead.

    They were saying the same thing about Iraq and now Iraq is probably, along with Israel, the most stable area of the Middle East.

    What was your time line for Iraq and what were you expecting from Afghanistan? You were told that the war on terror would take many, many years. Did you not believe that?

    Oh, and btw, US gas prices may be higher than $0.50 a gallon, but they are still less than half what most of the rest of the developed world is paying. We're paying $7 a gallon, the UK and France are paying over $8, Sweden, Norway and Switzerland over $9. You?
    Yes, gas prices are in the $4.00 range in the States, and they are getting most of their oil from Canada, You have more taxes in Europe which is why you pay more for your gasoline. We're approaching the European range in Canada (about $4.80 here) even though we should be self sufficient. It always depends on what the government thinks the market will bear and if people aren't rioting in the streets over gas prices they will continue to gouge the paying public for whatever they can get.

    Gas has always been proportionality lower in the US than Canada because they have fewer taxes on the product, and it has been that way for generations. But the Americans complain loudly about high gas prices when the government adds a tax. Canadians, and apparently Europeans as well, generally just grumble.
