Obama's wars for oil, is this just the latest?


Libya, Yemen and now Iraq/Syria - is this just the latest war for oil that Obama is waging? Libyan oil supplies Italy and France, the war there was to protect that flow. Obama destroyed Qaddafi just to replace him with something worse. Is Syria next and then what happens in Iraq when ISIS can turn its back on the the Syrian part of its name. ISIS are ready has millions from pilfered oil.

    Was there such support for Obama's oil war in Libya? The reason why there are no anti-war protests is because the protesters aren't anti-war, they are anti-Republican. Kind of like Jesse Jackson or NOW, the stated cause is not the actual cause.

    How much oil does the US get from Iraq, before-during-after the war? If we were to go to war for oil we would invade Canada.How much renewable energy does a wind mill make when the wind doesn't blow? How much oil does it take to make & transport

    The evil "foreign oil" consumed by the United States is Canada. We get nearly as much oil from Nigeria as from the Middle East. The problem with the Middle East is its abiding hatred for anything not Muslim and that dates back to the 7th century.

    Make up what ever story you like. Apparently you remember your fantasy quite differently than the rest of us remember reality.

    The keystone pipeline is a disaster for the environment....the R's only want it for THEIR buds. And I'm confused...aren't you a Bush supporter. Since when anti-business. I thought that was un-American. It used to be. Vehemently so!

    Good video but it doesn't prove anything we didn't already know. Big business owns our governenment, especially when it come to oil. Our government does all they can to make us dependent of foreign oil. Until that changes it will always be that.
