For reporters looking for background on the conflict in Iraq, we refer you to this insight from the book "Quest for the Presidency: A Newsweek Book," by Peter Goldman. It is about George Herbert Walker Bush's run for office, and offers this background about the lead-up to Gulf War I in 1990. See if it doesn't answer a question about why that war began. The book cites a 1990 article in a Texas newspaper "questioning his (George Senior's) motives for mobilizing to drive Saddam out of Kuwait. The article implied that he was doing it because his eldest son, George W., had business interests in Bahrain in need of protection from a widening war."
You can check it out on page 300 of the book. Full cite: "Quest for the Presidency: A Newsweek Book," by Peter Goldman, Texas A&M University Press, College Station, TX, 1994, p. 300.

A can of worms it is. The betrayal of the Bushes goes back to Prescott. These cowards even named their company Arbusto which means Bush in spanish.
Check out this site.

And after accusing Galloway of oil for food. The nerve of these traitorous assholes.

Then go to-

Then again-

This talks about the corrupt oil baron Oscar S. Wyatt jr. The corruption is rampant and greed based. These people are true traitors of the world, and they seem to be all connected.

Like I said, LEFT, RIGHT- SHIT"s shit. And we're just swallowing it. No matter how we swallow it, it tastes bad. Impeach the whole government.
