A war about OIL???? You\'re kidding....... I've been reading through a bunch of the pro-war/anti-war posts and I can't help but giggle at all the references to how this is a war about oil. NEWS FLASH...... Our society is so dependant on oil it's sick. Do you realize how many products would not be available if oil disappeared? Do you know how expensive a lot of things things would get if oil jumped to $50 a barrel? All you guys who are angry because oil always seems to be in the equation in your foreign policies should sell your trucks and quit being hypocrites. Big old 8 MPG rigs need lots of gas, which I'm sure you guys know is the main component of crude oil. I'm sure you also know that the asphalt that covers the roads you drive on is made with oil. I found a site that shows the breakdown of a barrel of oil. It also lists off the day-to-day products that are indirectly/directly made from crude oil. Go here : Crude Oil Info It looks to me like oil is pretty important to all of us. So if taking out a scumbag dictator gives us access to more oil, good for us.
