Re: [casi] oil

[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ]

I think that a careful view of US political motives is perhaps the most
illuminating.  (that is not what follows) There are many in the US who
believe the primary reason for this "War" centers on politics.  US economy
tanking, racial tensions growing, social stratification, corporate
malfeasance, growing debt and deficit, and our current admin largely
ineffectual in any meaningful steps to improve.  I think oil must be
recognized, but politics are paramount, at least in the US.  Historically I
think war is a convenient diversion for the US population.  Has generally
Britain, pressure from the US.
