> I know it's not about oil, but I'm going to attempt to > predict the future for everyone... Tupac, I realize you are telling me something...very tactfully. But what? Suppose it has to do with my response to your Smedley post. Actually, I was trying to agree both with you and with Peter Kiernan. And I guess I managed to annoy you both in one try. Is that it? Reading over my post, I can see why. It sounds terribly pedantic and know-all. - It was a spontaneous response and after I'd pressed the button, I wished I hadn't. I do think it's about oil, but not just oil for consumption's sake. As for the future, something has got to happen to offset the survival-of-the-greediest mentality by an increasingly vocal majority. Here is a quote from an American activist. I take great comfort in this: "I think people in America in the next 10 years will make the Vietnam protests look like a garden party. I think the courageous ones who stand up to the strange people in your government will save America from its leaders. I think the government has miscalculated the resolve of the American people." I too hope that you are wrong - and that he is right.

USA will begin war before 2/15. 2. After invasion, USA will NOT set up a democracy before ALL oil is gone. 3. After invasion, despite promises, American and British citizens will no t see lower oil prices. 4. No WMD will be found in Iraq. 5. Immediately after invasion, US companies will go to work QUICK repairing oil infrastructure and production facilities. So quick, it will almost seem as if these contracts were drawn up a long time before the war. 6. There will NOT be a smallpox attack in America or Britain. 7. Leading Iraqi figures involved in govt. during US occupation will have obvious oil ties. 8. Other than a few in the oil circles, Iraqi citizens will not see any of the oil money once it begins pumping. 9. MANY prisoners taken during war and susequent occupation. Surprisingly, Guantanmo will be already up to the task. 10. Soon after DC declares war over, there will be a new terror link getting a lot of press. This will deal with Iran and/or Saudi Arabia. Probably Iran, Saudi Arabia has Mecca, so that will require a little diplomacy. 11. For national security reasons, evidence of terror involvement by country chosen in #10, will not be shown to the public. This will be consistent with evidence alleging Bin Laden's 9/11 connection which allowed US to invade Afghanistan. Also consistent with the evidence of Saddam's WMD, which has not been presented. 12. The next phase of GW's plan will coincide with his re-election bid. If I am 100% completely wrong, that would make me VERY happy. _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
