Question: I ask this question because of the wacko liberal tag line: "No war for oil". As a poster below correctly pointed out, to shut off the flow of oil would mean the world economy would crash. So libs....under what circumstances would preventing this be acceptable to you...or do you prefer living in complete anarchy? Otto...you're obviously a mental midget that it would seem has no issue with the collape of the world economy so long as we observed pc protocols. I enjoy laughing at insignificant morons like you. AMAZING how liberal yappers can't seem to give a straight answer to this question!! Priorityze_ur_lyf and sassayk are two excellent examples! tehabwa...according to who? you? my question, my rules. obl isn't interested in money; only the destruction of the "great satan", the usa. what better way to screw us up than to not sell us their oil.

Absolutely. The fact is that it is delusional for anyone to think we could even supplant 25% of our energy needs with 'Green' sources at this time. This means that a takeover of Saudi Arabia, or for that matter, Iraq, will lead to a drastic surge in world oil prices. This will cause the world economy to stall and prompt a recession that will hurt many billions of people. America, being the only world power, would have to go to war to protect our economy....case closed.

The idea that all terrestrial petroleum originates in Saudi is a very big assumption to make. But if true, your solution should work. It's entirely possible, though unlikely, that Saudi has an oil pipeline passing directly through the earth's core to the sea bottom of the Gulf of Mexico.

I think the fact that 15 out of 19 of the 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia was enough to goto war over.....

OBL regards Saudi Arabia to be holy ground. The unforgivable thing the U.S. did to him was in having our troops on Saudi soil in the '90 Iraq war. He is against any war on Saudi soil and has asked that Saudi Arabia be spared from terrorism because he wants the oil for the Muslim's in case he accomplishes what he wants with his jihad.

That would be kinda moot because this country would have went after Osama bin Laden because he murdered people in New York. You remember that, don't you? That was your president's war cry BEFORE GOING INTO IRAQ FOR NO REASON. By the way, our oil supply is shut off due to our invasion into Iraq, our problems with Iran, and bush's problem with Chavez. Now, how about telling bush to get bin Laden like HE WAS SUPPOSE TO IN THE FIRST PLACE...

It's Arabia's right to not sell oil, just as it is the right of the U.S. to not trade with Cuba or North Korea. We should only go to war if Arabia is used as a base for physical attack on us. Gay person and Jacob W: just because our economy would be better off with plentiful oil doesn't give us the right to invade other countries. By your way of thinking, the Japanese invasion of China was justified, as was the German invasion of Poland.

Lisbeth Originally Answered: Osama bin Laden! Guilty or Innocent?
It's just a play. The US are using him as a scapegoat as an excuse to obtain oil in Afghanistan. The US Government have cleverly managed to brainwash masses of individuals into thinking that Bin Laden was responsible for the atrocity in New York on September 11, 2001 using doctored tapes. I mean, come on, who in their right mind would 'confess'? The confession tape had several faults. 1) In the FBI description, it says he is left-handed but in the video he is seen writing a note with his right hand. 2) He is a wearing a gold ring, which is forbidden by Islamic law. 3) The vague 'Bin Laden' in the video ('coincidentally' of poor quality) does not look much like the earlier photos of him. OK, so he may be a crazy extremist pyschopathic nutcase with bad principles, but he is not responsible for half of the things the US have him accounted responsible for. Using their propaganda machine (for all you patriots out there who deny the propaganda, look at this: 'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:US_PsyOps_leaflet.jpg'), the US have turned him into some kind of bogeyman. Bin Laden is undoubtedly dead, but the US Government still insist he is alive; they haven't got their full supply of oil yet. Many innocent, brave American men and women have died of capitalist greed.
