Follow the (Oil) Money

Bear with me - this post is going to cover a lot of topics, but they're all linked by two things: oil and corruption.

Powerline re-raises suspicion about oil prices being driven up by enemies of President Bush. I thought at the time I first heard of it (not long after Kerry’s asinine allegations that Bush had a secret deal with the Saudis to keep the price of oil down, what a scandal! I had it out with a liberal idiot at the time who actually admitted he blamed Bush for high or low oil prices, just one more example of how the left in their psychopathy tries to frame every event in such a way that they can blame Bush if X happens or if the exact opposite happens) that it made a lot of sense, and the rapid decline post-election only strengthens that opinion. In fact, it mirrors the MSM’s complete amnesia about explosivegate on November 3 after they had lost.

Combine that with the No-war for Oil scandal among France, Russia, Germany, and the U.N. and Kofi Annan, I say the quicker we develop alternative fuel sources the better – not so much from an environmental perspective as a political one. It is clearer than ever that oil is the lifeblood of the world, and we simply cannot have people manipulating oil prices to influence an election, or oppose liberating an oppressed people because they’re being bribed to do so.

Isn't it strange how Europe supports democracy in Ukraine, but not Iraq? I'd go a step further than Charles Krauthammer does in this excellent article, however, and say it is not just elitism, but the self-interest and greed their (and many of our) ignorant "No War for Oil" protesters accuse us of (perhaps he was just too polite to explicitly say so).

If you had said 20 years ago that Ukraine would today be on the threshold of joining a democratic Europe, you, too, would have been called a hopeless utopian. Yes, Iraq has no democratic tradition and deep ethnic divisions. But Ukrainian democracy is all of 13 years old, much of it dominated by a corrupt, authoritarian regime with close ties to an even more corrupt and authoritarian Russia. And with a civilizational split right down the middle, Ukraine has profound, and potentially catastrophic, divisions.


Might as well join some humor to this melting po(s)t of Oil conspiracies, Oil-for-Food scandals, and Ukraine and point you towards Frank J.'s latest Know Thy Enemy: The United Nations. I'll excerpt a few fun facts about the United Nations, but you'll have to click the link for the whole list.

* The U.S. created the United Nation in 1945 in an effort to centralize pointless squabbling.

* While the U.N. never actually stops massacres and genocide, they do have endless debate about them. And isn't that better than nothing?

* No, it is not.

* In a fight between U.N. and Aquaman, the U.N. would endlessly talk about deploying peacekeepers against Aquaman but never actually do it. Thus Aquaman would win by default. Yes, there is at least one entity in this world more impotent than Aquaman.


Heh. If you had any doubt this was all connected, note how Aquaman wears orange just like the revolutionaries in the Ukraine. Coincidence? I think not!
