1. No one likes poetry? Even if it names names? Corporate names?

The United States went to war for oil.

"Well, Iran has made little secret of its desire to gain hegemony in the
Persian Gulf, the critical oil and natural gas producing region that
we fought so many wars to try and protect our economy from the adverse impact
of losing that supply or having it available only at very high prices..." -- John Bolton, "ambassador" by default

Humph. Not all that original a thought, seeing how Henry Kissinger said the same thing,
as did Alan Greenspan and a whole bunch more satraps of the 1-Percent.

PS: War for oil is not OK if a Democrat does it, either.
