WAR FOR OIL MAY BE BAD PROPAGANDA FOR THE ANTI-WAR GROUP | 2002-09-28
As you well know, WhitakerOnline routinely discusses things that are obvious to us but which all the commentators would never think of. Last week I talked about how absurd it is for commentators to talk about how, because Iraq is a threat to American lives, we somehow owe it to Iraq to go in and give them a stable government.
Some readers wrote me that they had been wondering about this, but they had also felt that they alone had any sanity about this nonsense, since nobody in the media questioned this absurdity.
At all the cocktail parties Bush advisors go to, and all the other cocktail parties which our Opinion Makers attend, everybody agrees that it will really turn off Americans if they think we are going into Iraq for cheap oil.
But the more the leftists and Europeans say that America is going into Iraq for cheap oil, the stronger grassroots support for the war in Iraq gets.
