The Monster Pt. 3

Updated on January 20, 2016

Where Has All the Oil Gone?

Operation Iraqi Freedom, began in March of 2003. That means our sons and daughters, have been getting killed, crippled, and maimed, for almost six years. There is no foreseeable end to this war. Actually, the “war”, has been over for more than five years, we have been in “occupation” mode since then. Who is going to give the Iraqis freedom from us?

Let’s be blunt, the only thing America liberated the Iraqis from, was their oil. All of the major oil fields in Iraq were taken within weeks of the start of the war. Nobody talks about the oil, or more importantly, where this oil is going. NOBODY! When was the last time you heard about the Iraqi oil, and what was being done with it? In a nation with as many investigative reporters as we have, how come nobody is looking into this? There must be a very serious reason involved.

Iraq sits atop some of the largest oil reserves in the world. How do you pump, and ship all of that oil, over a space of five and a half years, with no one knowing, or apparently asking, where is it going?

There is one thing I do know, Americans are being killed to secure this oil, not to liberate Iraq! Imperial America rears its ugly head! Want to know why the rest of the world hates us? It is because we are NOT the good guys, the liberators, we have been brain washed to believe. We need to wake up! Our Government needs to be held accountable for its imperialistic actions, actions that line the pockets of rich men. Men, that don’t care if your child lives, or dies, as long as they make more money. These men, are the monster.

This trilogy was inspired by the anti-war, anti-imperialism, song, “Monster” by Steppenwolf in 1970. Check it out on youtube, it is as relevant now, as it was almost forty years ago.

      Hi Paper Moon. All we can do is try to educate the people that want to know what is really going on. Feel free to tell others about this hub.

      Beautiful hub! People are so blind to what is going on. You do not hear about the oil, because the editors and gate keepers of the media are owned by the corporations. What scares me is the sheep in this country who not only can not figure it out themselves, but when presented with it, do not believe. The few who do, most do not do anything, leaving little hope for the country.
