Fossil fuels: Washington's warriors ready
The Warriors of Washington have girded their loins for war. Dubya Bush, Uncle Dick Cheney, Rummy Rumsfeld, Richard Perle, ad nauseam, have smelled bloo..oops, they have smelled oil, Iraqi oil. Their rooting sections, Carlisle Group and Halliburton Corporation, are working on their cheers, Sic em, Boys, Go Get em, We will be behind you.
Once the Warriors of Washington will have conquered Iraq, it would be necessary to secure the Iraqi borders so it would be necessary to send a few more troops to occupy Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Democracy would come easy once those nice American bidnessmen arrived to teach those ignorant Kazakhstanis and Uzbekistanis how to pump oil out of the earth, and deliver the oil to all those customers waiting.
The Warriors of Washington are making things look quite easy, especially since Dubya and Uncle Dick have stated that they will not really need help from the EU, or NATO. Since none of Warriors of Washington have ever experienced any combat, or even heard a shot fired in anger, I wonder if they will be able give the American public an estimate of the number of casualties in their war, as well as the estimated duration of their war.
