“This letter is for Kate who says we don’t need Iraq’s oil. (Previous thread)

Wake up, Kate. I wish it wasn’t so, but our country has put itself on the most hated list of most other countries. No one likes a bully. We have become a big, ignorant, nasty bully.”
This letter is for Kate who says we don’t need Iraq’s oil. (Previous thread)

Kate, pick up a National Geographic. Get educated. Our Texas oilfields are on their way out. We cannot provide ourselves with oil. Were you around way back in the 70s when gasoline was rationed. That was 30 years ago. You know why that happened? Because OPEC stopped the flow of oil. Why do you think the first thing we did was secure the oilfields. Did we worry about the looting and sacking, the museums full of precious artifacts??? Ummm, no. We somehow forgot about that in the planning stages of “project liberate Iraq”. Wake up, Kate. I wish it wasn’t so, but our country has put itself on the most hated list of most other countries. No one likes a bully. We have become a big, ignorant, nasty bully. It saddens my heart to see the USA violating rights like crazy. We used to be appalled by this behavior, now we engage in it. Bush and the USA, shame on you for your crimes against the innocent. Bush, shame on you for your pride and short sightedness. It will take a long time to clean up this mess.
