Who Is Really Destabilizing Iraq?
In making his case against Iran, George Bush often uses the argument that it is the Iranians who are killing Americans in Iraq.
How interesting that new data from our own military, and published in today's New York Times, has revealed that 60% of the foreign fighters who are serving as suicide bombers, and engaging in other attacks in Iraq, hail from Saudi Arabia and Libya. A graphic representation of this, from the New York Times, is pictured above.
In fact, Saudi Arabia, BushCo's business partner, who provided 15 of the 19 terrorists who engineered the 9/11 attacks, provided a whopping 41% of foreign fighters. And, wouldn't you know, the impact of Iranian foreign forces is almost negligible, in comparison.
This begs the question...will Mr. Bush advocate an invasion of Saudi Arabia? Or of Libya, our newfound 'friend?'
Yeah, that will happen about as quickly as Halliburton offering their services at non-price-gouging rates.
It's all about the oil. Always is, and always was.
