You know, the Chimp shoulda been straight with his generals right up front. "Get me the oil and hold it," was all he would have had to say and they would have done it. There'd be Jarheads standing on every drilling rig and the shit would be flowing like the Mississippi River. But he had to gin it up in a U.N. resolution so the American people would swallow it. If he would have been straight with us; ("I'll git y'all 50 cent a gallon gas if you let me kick over Iraq and take it.") the majority of us would have probably gone along as well.
Incompetent, murderous fools.
