President Obama, I apologize for posting the top photo above, BUT I just read this article today (July 5, 2011...And how free do we all feel after July 4th?):
"Oil is much too important a commodity to be left in the hands of the Arabs."
It’s time for the United States to invade China before it (America…not China) completely runs out of money.
The U.S. has already been invaded by China, occupying us with all of those goodies that we buy at Wal-Mart, et al.
We won’t bite or bomb hands that feed us (unless those hands are clenching gold or the golden spigots of oil wells.)
We will liberate (i.e., invade and occupy) any country if it has an abundant amount of petroleum or gold.
As a bonus, we’ll send hundreds of our private businesses and corporations to bring some democracy.
Conspiracy theories [CTs] are as popular as cell phones, and nearly as voluminous as worms.
One very strange CT was that George Bush Senior wanted Kuwait to be invaded by Saddam Hussein in order to give the casus belli for invasion:
July 25, 1990
[Ambassador April Glaspie at the Presidential Palace in Baghdad]
"We have no opinion on your Arab-Arab conflicts, such as your dispute with Kuwait. Secretary (of State James) Baker has directed me to emphasize the instruction, first given to Iraq in the 1960's that the Kuwait issue is not associated with America."
The Pentagon, the Banks, and Corporations are just fine with foreign Invasions and Occupations, and will always hope for more and more monsters to slay, and for more and more freedom fighters and rebels to assist.
IT'S THE OIL STUPID!
