    Some analysts say there is a concerted effort by terrorist groups to create chaos on many different levels in Iraq. The above list is not everything that has happened as a result of terrorists.

    Muslims, Christians and Jews understand the great danger the international community is in today. The dangers of Hezbollah, Terrorists. etc.

    Danger extends to the 'doorstep' of every democratic, freedom-loving nation.

    So Christians, Muslims and Jews are contiually growing and learning about the values we share in common.

    Muslims, Christians and Jews are accustomed to being libeled, hated, and used as scapegoats for the world's ills.

    However, the difference today is that Jews and Christians and Muslims have been linked together, both by the need to defeat terrorism and our commitment to a common set of moral and spiritual values.

    Given the global dangers we face today as Jews, Muslims, and Christians together, we are increasingly becomming aware of the ongoing opportunities we have to forge even closer bonds. ~(~

    That makes no sense. Either Bush/America are fighting a war on terror, or we are raiding countries for oil. Since we arent taking their oil and gas sure isnt cheap over here, the troops are fighting in the military action congress authorized and the president is seeing through.

    It must be pretty desperate to be a liberal to have to fictionalize in order to come up with reasons for Bush hatred. I admit I have an extreme dislike for the left because they promote the murder of the unborn and they want to raise taxes all the time. At least the basis for my dislike is out of the words of their own mouth of their well known philosophy. Liberals hatred often is just mimicked from the media and based on fiction rather than fact.

    Day two operation Iraqi Freedom, U.S. forces are in control of a mostly intact and operational oil infrastructure. We also control the pumping station through which eighteen percent of the world's oil flows, their major port city on the gulf and offshore loading platforms for tankers. This was all on day two, don't take my word, look it up. Since then we have basically been kept in the dark as to what exactly is happening with the Iraqi oil. We do know there are thousands of civilian workers and thousands of Blackwater personnel in Iraq. What do you think they might be doing? Our troops and this so called war on terror are nothing but a big diversion while the wheeling and dealing for a part of Iraq's oil continues. Victory in Iraq will be drilling rights signed by their democratically elected government.

    Post a reputable link on Bush's earnings from oil since 2000.

    edit:

    'right you are ken'... I hate to break this to you, but don't you think that when Bush stated that we took control of all the Iraqi oil wells and handed them back to their government was truthful?

    If he were raiding the Iraqi's of oil and receiving funds from it, don't you think THAT huge additional resource for crude oil would decrease our costs here at home?

    By putting THAT money back into their economy has helped aid in rebuilding their country.

    You need to ask your local congressman/woman about this so you can better understand what's going on over there before you say something untrue and foolish.
