For the Fiftieth Bloody Time, This is NOT a War for Oil

The War in Iraq is not a war for oil. It is a crisis that is a part of the larger war between the two forces that are vying for control of the world-- Islam and Marxism.

You want a war for oil? Try the Yom Kippur War in 1973. THAT was a freaking war for oil, numbskulls.

From Wikipedia:

"The 1973 oil crisis began in earnest on October 17, 1973, when Arab members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), during the Yom Kippur War, announced that they would no longer ship petroleum to nations that had supported Israel in its conflict with Egypt—that is, to the United States and its allies in Western Europe."

For those of you who've never heard of the Yom Kippur War, let alone Yom Kippur, also from Wikipedia:

"The Yom Kippur War, Ramadan War or October War...also known as the 1973 Arab-Israeli War, was fought from October 6 (the day of Yom Kippur) to October 24, 1973, between Israel and a coalition of Egypt and Syria. The War began when Egypt and Syria launched a surprise joint attack (though recent evidence suggests that some key figures in Israel were aware of it ahead of time) in the Sinai and Golan Heights, respectively, both of which had been captured by Israel during the Six-Day War six years earlier."

Oil-producing Arab nations started a war with Israel, then used that war as an excuse to embargo oil exports to the United States and Europe. That is the definition of a WAR FOR OIL.

Morons. Sit down, shut up, and LEARN.
