Which is the Bigger Story?
Letter to the Editor:
Which story is more important to you? The death of Michael Jackson, or the story about removing troops from Iraq? I find the removal of the troops much more interesting to me. Why? Iraq has decided to auction off it's oil rights to the highest bidders, such as EXXON. And this action precipitated the removal of the troops.
Does this mean that the only reason we were still occupying Iraq was to privatize their oil to large American corporations? Sounds like it to me. Our sons and daughters, fathers and mothers were being killed to ensure the large oil corporations would get Iraq's oil.
What is the next step in taking over the world's oil? Occupying Iran? We are already in Afghanistan. Of course Saudi Arabia will be last on the Middle East Agenda. First you cut off the legs and arms, and then go in for the kill.
And what about Palin giving up her job as governor. I think a statement was made about how she was the driving force in increasing oil production in Alaska. You betcha.
If you look into your home life and see all things plastic that you depend on to make your existence easier, you will be astounded. Those plastic items that replaced glass and metal are made from oil. Yes, once the Private Oil Czars get control of the earth's oil, all of our freedoms will be a thing of the past. They will rule every aspect of your life.
So again I ask you, which story is more important to you? The Michael Jackson story, or the one that was barely mentioned, the auctioning off of Iraq's oil and bringing home the troops?
