    Bush is a fool, but i feel this war of terror and the friction with Islamic states will be looked upon as comparitively minor when considered by historians, the major conflict is yet to come i feel.
    let's hope not.... wish i could buy an island, watch the world tear itself to pieces as it runs out of oil and sea levels rise

    Halliburton's a favourite - **** Cheney used to be a board-member - even chairman?
    There is a US company which supplies fertilisers/grain which i think has a large number of members of the US governments past and present on its board, can't remember the name i'll get back to you

    because i think that middle eastern companies should be given first choice on whether or not they want the contract or if they can manage it i don't see why the war should line the pockets of those who started it

    This would also reduce the antagonism caused by having foreigners/infidels running around the country taking their resources. Its easy enough for the oil contracts to be put forward as simple looting by the extremists.

    Bush is full of s*** he is forced to continue saying this because of the companies that support him do not wish it to happen whereas countless studies have proved otherwise. Furthermore this is a positive feedback loop meaning that as the temperature rises due to global warming the soil, rocks etc... release more carbon dioxide accelerating the process

    At the end of the day theres money to be made in denying the existence or possibility of global warming, theres no profit in accepting its existence.

    Surely if you're going to liberate a country a good way to get it back on its feet would be to give as many internal contracts as possible?

    You're asking us whether we think that a politician who tried to screw the nation into thinking killing 10, 000 people is justified, is a liar?

    Hilarious thread.
