    And you still haven't answered my question.

    Why is that? Because you can't understand English or because actually answering would blow your argument to pieces?

    If it was about oil how much oil are we now getting from Iraq?
    Oh look kids! Another person completely ignorant as to how oil markets work. It doesn't matter how much we get. And you ignored how Wolfwitz argued that Iraq could be used as a tool to break OPEC. Increasing supply of LSC to the market reduces prices, furthermore, a strong presence in Iraq stabilizes trading of oil.

    It could hardly be more clear.
    Isn't it ironic that due to the invasion, they amount of oil produced in Iraq has actuallu gone down due the the strife in the country. This has ahd the effet of increasing ME oil.Earlier this year the cost per barrel was down to $35 and now it is $80 dollars. People do not talk about it much but this is a hge indirect tax on the American public.

    Yeah it didn't quite turn out to be the cakewalk to victory that Dick-n-Bush thought it would be. They didn't expect the Iraqis to fight back for 7 years!
