Told you these crazy towel heads can't handle a democracy! What a bunch of stupid idealogues in Washington! The sooner we get back to a (U.S. friendly) dictatorship in Iraq, the better!

I'm probably going to lose some of you here, but I support the war on Iraq because it's about oil! I know that we're saying it's to keep WMD out of a madman's hands and protect the region, etc. -- and that's valid. But the real reason is that we want to take the second largest oil reserve out of the hands of the madman with WMD, thus ensuring that supply will continue to be available for the foreseeable future. No, we're NOT "taking the oil", just ensuring and insuring it's availability. It's good business. Reliable flow of oil is a key to the proper functioning of the gloabal economy. I make no apology for it whatsoever.
Is this war about bringing democracy Iraq so that the people may live better lives?? Give me a break! Smoke another doobie! Frankly, I don't want a democracy in Iraq. They don't know how to live in a democracy and they will surely screw it up. Three years from now, we'll have to invade again. Give me another dictator. Just a friendly one this time.
Sorry it doesn't sound pretty, but it's the way it is! If you're really honest with yourselves, you know I'm right.
