Robert Scheer: Brooding Prince’s Soliloquy
Jan 9, 2007
By Robert Scheer
To surge or not to surge, that is the question. As our prince proposes, once again, to take arms against a sea of troubles, he responds not to the disaster that he has visited upon Iraq, but rather embraces a desperate strategy for salvaging what remains of his reign.
To win, perchance to dream. Few Americans, a mere 17 percent, according to the latest Washington Post/ABC poll, think that sacrificing more Americans in patrols on the streets of Baghdad will reverse the slings and arrows of our outrageous Iraqi fortune, but giving a speech about it might provide our hapless Hamlet with some temporary political cover.

The Iraqi Hydrocarbon act which gives Big oil,Shell,Exxon,BP, the control of the oil and 75% of the profits . This act goes into effect at the end of march. The end of march is also when bushies troop escalation will be complete.
95% of Iraq’s revenue is from oil. How do you think the Iraqi’s will react when they learn that 75% of their countries revenue is being taken by big western oil companies.
These are the same companies which were at Dick Cheyney’s energy meeting. The first secret US energy policy meeting.
It would be good for Congress to force the bushies to release records of what happened at this secret energy meeting. I am sure that they made the deal to attack Iraq and secure the oil.
So bush is sending troops to stop any rebellion from Iraqi’s when they learn that we are stealing all their oil money.
There is NO Al Qaida in Iraq. Their are Iraqi’s fighting for their country.
