In truth, despite the overwhelming disparity in casualties with the Lebanese losing the most, both sides seem to care little where their ordinance falls. A family car. A State sponsored refugee camp. Peanuts to the war bastards.
Iran is supplying Hezbollah with some reasonably advanced hardware. Saudi Arabia supplies Hezbollah with money. It is the innocents on both sides of this crime that are the people suffering.
It seems that every attempt the GEorge has made to squeeze the oil out of the Middle East has failed miserably. The man's soul is black as coal. He is without doubt a murder of the lowest form. Further the lowest form of life.
But has he lost the oil in the middle east or not? He may not yet be pumping it freely as these neocon sonsofbitchs mistakenly believed they would, but he and his oil buddies ain't losin' either.
Every one of these bastards from the George to the Iranian president could bring this to an end. But then some form of calming effect would come about and the current 75 dollar per barrel oil and above just might come down.
Exxon Mobil is still in the ten billion area in terms of profits, and the rest of these mutts are using drag lines to haul in all the money they're making. So, what's a few more lives?
Yes, WE are taking screwdrivers in the ear with $3 dollar and above gasoline at the pump, whilst for show, the George is using canards like "routing Hezbollah" and "democracy in Iraq and other such crap to justify the crimes he's committed, the Major oil Companies are still screaming with delight at all the money they're making.
Shortage? Only in refining capability in the US. Supply?, well, not under the ground anyway. But then, that's never been the case.
Americans, Iraqis, Afghanis, Lebanese, Israelis are dying for oil. Oil profits like the current ones have never been seen on earth before, and if plan A failed, which it did, then plan B of keeping the middle east in ever increasing turmoil will work. So far, it is.
The US is now accusing Venezuela of not following US terrorism rules. The George tried to piss on the Mexican Elections with Choice point. The only one left really is Canada.
Since they are the last of the four major US suppliers, perhaps the George will decide people in Montreal are breathing too much 'American' air and kick off an invasion of Canada, and head straight for their oil fields as was the case in Iraq.
For the life of me, I can't see anyway the US can show it's face in the world again if and when this nightmare is over. And all for oil. But then, oil is more valuable than gold. Whoever controls oil, controls the world.
