If the oil companies had that much control over prices they could have engineered the price hike without any war. In reality high oil prices can hurt US oil companies quiote badly as it really does make people sit up and take notice when the price goes up by 50% in a few months. We don't se the change anything like as clearly as the price we pay has so much tax in it.
Quite an interesting take on politics you have there. Although different views may corrolate to a certain extent at times that does not mean that you agree with a person. The reasons behind two seemingly identical arguments may well be completely opposed.
It also looks as if you don't believe that our involvement in Iraq has anything to do with oil and everything to do with WMD's. Are you really this naive or do you usualy believe everything you are told by the people in charge?
I take it that we are the good guys and them's the bad guys and that it is all black and white?
Try reading what I said again, Gorgeous George himself claims any one who echos his opinions is a supporter whether or not that is your intent. Politics is a funny old place and your opinions can obtain interesting freinds.
The US could have had it's wicked way with the Iraqi oil without a war and for much less than it is currently costing them. Personally I don't buy the big oil conspiracy thing, but of course I could always be wrong. I didn't go that much on using the WMds as a reason either, if they had just done it because SH was a particularly nasty man it would have given them a good excuse to get rid of a few others as well like Mugabe.
As it is they have made a real cock up of the whole thing, which was only to be expected I suppose, and as ever it is Tommy this and Tommy that.
In the present fighting I don't see most of those against us as being loyal Iraqis trying to get rid of the vile invader, rather they are either OBLs mob trying to have a go at the West and at the same time claim a new base for him since the Afghan thing went pear shaped or they are locals who hope to destroy the democratic process and set up another dictatorship based ofn fear and terror.
As to good or bad, there all all osrts of shades of grey in that.
