Straight talk express admits the truth


We're there for the oil...

“Senator Obama and Senator Clinton want to set a date for withdraw. That's what they want to do is get everybody out. I believe that would lead to catastrophe and chaos and that we would have the whole region including the whole region and the country in such turmoil that we would be required to come back to the region. And I just want to promise you this. My friends, I will have an energy policy that we will be talking about, which will eliminate our dependence on oil from the Middle East that will - that will then prevent us - that will prevent us from having ever to send our young men and women into conflict again in the Middle East.”

Of course, McCain gets a pass from the media on this while everyone keeps talking about Rev Wright.

Crooks and Liars has more...

UPDATE Bullshit! He wasn't talking about the first war, he was talking about THIS war. Obama and Clinton were NOT in the senate during the time of the first war. Read and listen to the full context of his remark AGAIN!

...and wasn't the rationale for the FIRST war against Iraq was the liberation Kuwait?
FLACHBACK 1991 and Daddy Bush:
President Bush told the world from the Oval Office, one day after the expiry of the United Nations ultimatum for Iraq to withdraw from Kuwait: "The world could wait no longer."

[...]

"Our objectives are clear. Saddam Hussein's forces will leave Kuwait. The legitimate government will be restored to its rightful place and Kuwait will once again be free."

Try again McBush...
