Still Waiting....

Where's all that oil that America was supposed to seize in Iraq? Remember?, that's why Bush "rushed" to war – "for oil."

Saddam's regime was defeated quickly. It should have been a simple matter to secure the oil, arrange direct transport to the U.S. and forget all the time, effort, money, and lives wasted simply repairing neglected infrastructure and attempting to plant the seeds of a somewhat democratic society in Iraq. Then again – I know, this is far-fetched – maybe the war wasn't really for oil. And maybe, just maybe, the job continues (minus the much craved oil spoils) because someone doesn't want to see a ruthless undemocratic theocratic regime imposed there again.

"Blood for oil"...yeah, whatever...
