The Bum's Rush
In case you missed it, President Bush continues to come clean on exactly what our troops are dying for in Iraq. From his "interview" with Rush Limbaugh:
I am deeply concerned about a country, the United States, leaving the Middle East. I am worried that rival forms of extremists will battle for power, obviously creating incredible damage if they do so; that they will topple modern governments, that they will be in a position to use oil as a tool to blackmail the West. People say, "What do you mean by that?" I say, "If they control oil resources, then they pull oil off the market in order to run the price up, and they will do so unless we abandon Israel, for example, or unless we abandon allies.Oil and Israel. That wouldn't have gone over too well in Colin Powell's pre-war presentation to the U.N., would it?
