Robert Fisk: What the US President wants us to forget

Independent Argument

In all of Bush’s 30 minutes of anti-Iraq war talk yesterday – pleasantly leavened with just two minutes of how “I hope this will not require military action” – there wasn’t a single reference to the fact that Iraq may hold oil reserves larger than those of Saudi Arabia, that American oil companies stand to gain billions of dollars in the event of a US invasion, that, once out of power, Bush and his friends could become multi-billionaires on the spoils of this war. We must ignore all this before we go to war. We must forget.

High on Daypop today… and most of the bloggers citing it are on the side of Robert Fisk.


These sites are anti war, and some have links exposing the imperialism driving the war.
