10. It's called GREED!
They want to tie up all the oil leases they can get, control Iraq's oil, and they had hoped that they would be in control of all the middle east oil by the time Bush got out of office, to bad things didn't work out for them in that scenario! :mad:

These asshats want to control the whole world, the "new world order" crap that daddy Bush was always talking about. The best thing is that they put the biggest idiot around in charge of getting their "new world order", and so far he has failed. We have a chance when Obama takes control in 2009, but it will be a long hard job of getting this country back on the right track. It can be done, but we need to clean out congress and get rid of the "corporate" puppets from both parties. We need to take back the country from corporations that only care about greed, and not about the suffering of those who do the work that keeps this country running!
