Same could be said for what was posted in this thread.

It wasn't a post about the war starting, it was a post about oil. This to is a post about oil.

>oh and your post was based entirely on one man's

So what was the article posted here based on? It's one common opinion for one particular side. No different than what I posted at all.

and as expected, all your cronies hopped on it the

Oh I must have missed the part where all the fair-minded okayplayers questioned the sources of this article. When do any of you question the sources of articles you agree with? Never. If you did, then so many of you might not be so misguided all the time.

I have done research.

>i think you've just proved

If posting an article that I agree with, instead of writting up my own personal analysis equates to blind allegiance, then literally everybody here is guilty of it.

Saddam took the bait? God, now you are making excuses for Saddam Hussein?

The bottom line on the oil is this. After this war, all Iraqi oil assests will go into a UN trust fund, and be used TOTALLY, to help the Iraqi people. None of these bullshit charges you make about Bush or Cheney will hold true. They will gain nothing from this war, other than safety.

And that is the truth.

Look at how wrong your side has been just over the last day. Saddam said he had no missles with the range of Scud's used in Desert Storm, he has launched atleast 4 already that greatly exceed the limits restricted by the UN. Ricin was found in France today, and most people believe it to come from the home of "Chemical Ali". In all liklihood, it does. Iraq has chemical and biological weapons, the have banned conventional weapons, the have and will give them to terrorists, Saddam Hussein is a threat to world peace.
