So this guy doesn't think that if there is one missle fired or one ship sunk in the Straits that oil prices aren't going through the roof?  So he really doesn't think that Israel isn't going to bomb the Iranian nulcear sites?  Really?  Bet the BANK that Iran is bombed or they take a shot at sinking one of our ships over the next 3-6 months....  This war has been building for over 10yrs folks!

east coast refinery will be sitting there all by itself because if gas keeps going up people will cut back like crazy and they will say we don't need gas, prices will go up again because they still have to pay the men, **** obama will just tell them to lay them off, freak in idiot, why don't we vote to lay off washington

War for oil.  Ya, we stole all of Iraq's oil that is why we get teh stuff free now!   Gee, ya .....  we pay for the stuff and Exxon does not own the oil fields in Iraq.  Gee, sure sounds like we had a war to steal oil doesn't  it.

 

I am so sick of this stupid leftist BS.  In the old days if you went to war to took the spoils.  ANd with the exception of the U.S. that is still true.  The U.S. NEVER has taken the land or the spoils in a war.  Just give the stupid war for all crap a rest.  It just holds ZERO WATER!
