Big oil, big media & greedy politicians have told us the BIG LIE.
They want us to blame China, India or speculators- anyone but them- for the increase in demand & high fuel cost.
But that's a BIG LIE. Why, because they omit what driving low mileage tanks & humvees all over the desert, or transporting equipment & troops- not just service members but private contractors which outnumber our troop levels, or what effect the surge is having on supply & demand. Did you notice the highest spike in prices at the pump coincided with 'the surge'. Did you know that the Department of Defense is the biggest purchaser of oil in the world?
Here's the next BIG LIE: Protests are ineffective. Remember the President of the United States asking the Saudis to increase oil production not once but twice & both times the Saudis refused- even with a multi-billion dollar arms deal on the table, claiming the problem was speculators not supply & demand? But then as soon as Europe erupted in gas strikes the Saudis did a 180 & promised to increase output.
But don't look or wait to find these stories on CNN, Fox, MSNBC, NY Times, etc. Why, is it a conspiracy? NO, but they all profit from war.
Don't expect the Democratic controlled Congress to end the war, either. 151 Democratic Senators & Congressmen have at least $190 million of their own money invested in weapons manufactures who hold contracts with the Department of Defense doing business in Iraq.
And both presidential candidates from both parties have accepted campaign contributions from the military industrial complex.
But there is an EXIT STRATEGY from Iraq & from high GAS PRICES.
SHUT 'EM DOWN
Join millions world-wide in a series of strikes to END THE LIES.
From big oil, big media & greedy politicians.
