War September 12th, 2014

Saddam probably had weapons of mass destruction. The United States probably paid for them. But we went to war in Iraq because Saddam was sitting on a hundred billion barrels of oil and was threatening to disrupt prices in a 7 billion dollar a day industry.

When corporate profits can be made by investing in political influence, politicians shouldn’t be trusted with war. That is why the President is supposed to make the case before Congress and the people that a state of war exists, that we are under attack, before waging war. But why let the Constitution get in the way.

Before the war, a barrel of oil was worth $15.00 a barrel. After the war it was worth close to $100.00. Considering ExxonMobil produces 5.3 million barrels a day, that’s a pretty good return on their 50 full time lobbyists and 1.4 million a year in political contributions.

In the lead up to the invasion of Iraq there was nonstop news coverage, liberal and conservative, on what a bad guy Saddam was. It’s a safe bet that when MSNBC and Fox News are both trying to convince us of the same thing, there’s something else going on.

Now they want us to believe that ISIS just found all these weapons in the desert. ISIS has a standing army with planes, weapons, intelligence and logistics. You don’t find that laying in the desert. ISIS has been around since the early 1700’s. They became a threat when they figured out how to harvest the money and arms that the United States is pouring into the region.

We spent 100 million dollars arming rebels in Syria who were fighting President Assad. Now Obama wants another 500 million for the rebels, and 5 billion to fight ISIS on the side of Assad. Something about our involvement in Syria stinks and like most of our involvement in the Middle East over the last 40 years, it smells like oil.

Our quasi-capitalist system in which multi-national corporations collude with government to gain multi-billion dollar monopolies corrupts everything involved, including foreign policy. The only industry in the world that is bigger than oil is Washington influence peddling and the largest purchasers are big oil and defense contractors.

We should stop sending money to the Middle East for oil or bombs. We should defend our own borders, we should quit hindering domestic manufacturing and energy production, and we should quit squandering the wealth we will need to defend our country.
