    this has happened before, and it will happen again.

    The big winners in this conflict?

    The oil companies and speculators, as they get to suck in more windfall profits. Countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia stand to profit, too.

    The rhetoric of 'The End Times' - playing to fear.

    Sauce for the goose .. and fuel to boost up the price of oil.

    Journalistic standards aren't just for 'journalists', anymore.

    •  I think oil prices DO have a part to play (0+ / 0-)

      Less motivation for Bush and Cheney to try to play peace keepers.

      I also think Bush is totally out of his mind to think he could do this job!  Why should he succeed at this one where he has failed so often before.

      I think they might outsmart themselves though, as most of their kool aid crowd really really really DO pay attention to the price they pay at the pump.

      I also think they might outsmart themselves and get us into a whole lot of WW III because I don't think the new PM of Israel knows any better about how to stop what he started than Bush knows how to finish the business of Iraq.
