  •  I was never about the oil... (none)
    ... we haven't gotten a drop, nor will we....

    It was about Bush avenging his daddy...  that's basicallly it..

    I actually wish that it was for oil... that would have given the war more purpose... and we might have some lower gas prices....

    Thanks,

    Mike

      I've always thought that Bush's dislike of his father coupled with the need for Daddy's approval was the factor that caused him to be receptive when the idea of attacking Iraq was presented to him by his mentors in "recovery/rebirth". (The removal of Saddam Hussein as a Freudian Magic Bullet to alleviate GW's feelings of inadequacy.) Bush's handlers, however, had their own motives.
