No Blood For Oil

Yep, Digby is correct, again. Only those of us who don't seriously take showers or baths or saunas, aka DFH, would be so crass to suggest Bu$hCo & Dick "Dick" Cheney would send young Americans to die for oil. How, unserious is that? It's like eating a scone with one's fingers. Here's Digby quoting Bill Moyers from last night. I can't watch Moyers on my local PBS station since the big maple tree in the yard has leafed out & blocks the satelite dish from picking up the local Duluth channels. That's why I just love the Internets.
Oh, no, they told us, Iraq isn't a war about oil. That's cynical and simplistic, they said. It's about terror and al Qaeda and toppling a dictator and spreading democracy and protecting ourselves from weapons of mass destruction. But one by one, these concocted rationales went up in smoke, fire, and ashes. And now the bottom line turns out to be....the bottom line. It is about oil.
Now, loyal four readers, go read the rest of Digby & Moyers. It will make your Saturday a great day, sort of. My emphasis, as if it's really needed. Feeling safer yet?
