    LondonYank said (correctly in my opinion) is that they want oil that does not have to go through the Straits of Hormuz, which means pipelines through Syria from Iran and Iraq to ports in Syria, protected by bases.

    In my opinion the Republicans can not voice this plan because it means a committment to Empire in the Victorian sense of the word; blood and money beyond comprehension. So we are fobbed off with stories about democracy in the mid east, non existant nukes in Iran, faux attacks on Israel and the rest of the Bush version of Grimm's Tales.
