Comments: Cheney Spent "Long Hours" Discussing Iraq as Delicious "Additional Source of Oil"

I guess 2 dollars a barrel was too cheap for U&I&Deadeye.

When "Big Daddy 41" was Chief, Ole Deadeye was hanging around then too. I just imagine he got his epiphany about Iraq long before Vail 2002.

On a lighter note, VOTE FOR JEB 2016.

IIRC the iraqi idiocracy in london was telling any reporter who'd listen to them that they'd toss all saddam's oil agreements as soon as they were in control.

it wasn't even a BAD secret.

The most obscene statement in the article is this:

For a long time, war with Iraq was discussed inside the Bush administration as something that would be decided at some point in the future; then, somewhere along the way, war with Iraq was discussed as something that had already been decided long ago in the past.

At no point, was there an actual decision made ... just change the framing of the discussion.

cohen is a turd, but in a way frum is right that he couldn't have stopped the Iraq war, because if he could have done that, he wouldn't be frum.

people generally hate other people who make them feel guilty more than they hate people who make them feel morally superior. thus dennis Kucinich is and will be more hated than dick cheney in many circles. so it goes

also explains why liberals commonly hate radicals or socialistic types like Kucinich more than they hate some of the cryptofascist types running most of the military, intel, law enforcement, and national security braches of our media-savvy but vicious leviathan
