    Default War In the Middle East

    The war in the Middle East gives an opportunity for Muslims to battle against an invincible enemy, to fight bravely and to die without fear, and to put a new spin on a famous Nietzschean quote. "What doesn't kill us as a religion only makes us stronger." Why do we give them this opportunity?

    Feet on the ground means price control for opiates and gas.
    Also justification for military expenses.
    And blood for the Jew gods.

    Don't you guys want their oil or something? Or is it more like an Orwellian need to create an enemy? I really don't understand this stuff, I wish we had all just stayed away.

    Are you talking about the oppressed Palestinians being starved out by an apartheid government that halts their water supply, knows every freckle on every face of every citizen, is stealing their land for their imperalistic world domination plan, where people die at checkpoints because they aren't allowed to get to a hospital, where they are murdered --- daily --- for grazing their goat on their 1,000 year old property but oh ---- someone from Poland or Russia just moved in and has stolen their land- so just murder them ..... that American tax payers are footing the bill for? Is that the middle east "war" you are talking about?

    We get a very small amount of the oil; oil is big because a government needs revenue, therefore, worthy of particular address. China is the middle east's main importer of oil, nearly tenfold compared to the US.

    To reiterate, as Che Guevara pointed out, a republic must be financed. It just so happens, aye, oil is what's abundant and readily exploitable.

    Which war are you talking about? People are killing each other all over the Middle East.

    Mal's American, right? I meant you American guys. Anyway, it's best just to ignore anything I have to say about this matter, I have no clue. I regret posting at all, in hindsight.

    What gods are you referring to? Judaism is monotheistic.

    I don't think America gets much (if any) real material benefit out of droning suspected terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan. And besides, we're wrapping up operations in Afghanistan this year.
