Especially since we then went even further to post Iraq: World's Number One Oil Producer?, some felt we had gone over the top.
Can you imagine the MSM scorn toward a lowly blog like ours that dares to consider the possibility that the Afghanistan and Iraq wars had anything at all to do with oil?
I mean, Dredd Blog even did a series The Peak of The Oil Wars, culminating so far in The Peak of The Oil Wars - 3, explaining that we are in the middle of the wars to perpetuate the oil / war addiction until civilization as we know it is destroyed.
In the very near term, an utterly "new reality" may be emerging:
1) now that the Withdrawal of the Meaning of Combat has taken place;In this new emerging reality that is being invented out of whole cloth, stories about Iraq oil fields will come out as if they are normal business news unrelated to any notions of war.
2) the media of MOMCOM is not reporting the Iraq War any more;
3) except as something that is over and done with.
For example, consider a couple of embryonic stories:
The revival in Iraqi oil production will be a "game-changer" for global oil supplies and a challenge for other big oil producers like Saudi Arabia, the International Energy Agency said Tuesday(Wall Street Journal). Lets go on to consider the following as well:
Iraq's oil production is increasingly important to meet world energy demand, industry executives meeting in London said Tuesday ...(Chicago Tribune). You can consider those articles to be talking about the important oil business of Iraq can't you?
Can you say "what Iraq war"?
The whole war episode may be played out after the fact as something that heroically saved the nation from a catastrophe caused by peak oil.
Especially "since all that pie in the sky lefty Al Gore green energy is a thousand years in the future".
The billboard sign of Bush II in Texas asking "Do you miss me yet" will take on a new meaning, and he may be seen as a hero who had the vision to save the nation.
Except to people who are not brain dead to the science, except to people who know that global warming and global climate change are caused by the use of the fossil fuels MOMCOM invaded Afghanistan and Iraq to steal and plunder.
That W "vision" now binds civilization to its own demise as addicts to war and oil consumption.
On the bottom line it deceives and enslaves us with State Crimes Against Democracy (SCAD).
