Bush gives new reason for Iraq war

From the Boston Globe:

CORONADO, Calif. -- President Bush answered growing antiwar protests yesterday with a fresh reason for US troops to continue fighting in Iraq: protection of the country's vast oil fields, which he said would otherwise fall under the control of terrorist extremists.

With gas prices on the way up in the wake of Katrina, this one might help him. Hell, the damn oil's the reason we were there in the first place. It's about time he admitted it.
