Simple Math

In his news conference the other day, Bush stated that he didn't want the Iraq War. I find that doubtful, as hard as he and his cabal pushed for it, ignoring all intelligence in favor of their cooked data. After all, Reagan had his war (the Great Grenada Adventure) and daddy had his (Gulf War, v1.0, and Panama!) Georgie wanted to be a "War President," too.

Being a war president has its advantages. It helps in the polls, especially if you time it right, just before an election. After all, you don't change horses in mid-stream. Right?

And all that chaos can be helpful, too. George may not know much, but he seems to understand the law of supply and demand. Less oil available = higher prices. So said Adam Smith. The war closed down the oil fields in Iraq, and Bush has failed to get them back on line. The cost of a barrel of oil has almost tripled. And oil companies have posted record profits (record not just for them, but for any corporation in the history of mankind).

So, Bush went in for the oil -- not to get more of Iraq's oil, but to prevent Iraq producing too much of it. Mission Accomplished!

But then, what else would you expect if you elect two oilmen to the White House?
