For those few who refused to accept this truth more than five years ago, Matthew Rothschild explains it all:
Before Bush launched the Iraq War, I had a bumper sticker that said “No War for Oil.”
I got some one-finger salutes, and I remember a guy on a motorcycle screaming at me for several hundred yards.
Meanwhile, all the on-air cheerleaders for Bush’s war disputed the assertion that it had anything to do with that dirty three-letter-word oil.
But it all comes out sooner or later.
And now is later.
On Tuesday, Bush issued one of his notorious signing statements—this one on the latest Pentagon spending bill that he had just made into law. He objected to the part of the bill that barred the U.S. government from trying “to exercise United States control of
the oil resources of Iraq.”
Why did he do that?
Because from day one in Iraq, he’s been trying “to exercise United States control of the oil resources of Iraq.”
