ALL ABOUT OIL?….During his interview with Rush Limbaugh today, George Bush paused for a bit and then veered off from the subject at hand to explain what really troubles him about the Middle East:
Give me a second here, Rush, because I want to share something with you. I am deeply concerned about a country, the United States, leaving the Middle East. I am worried that rival forms of extremists will battle for power, obviously creating incredible damage if they do so; that they will topple modern governments, that they will be in a position to use oil as a tool to blackmail the West. People say, “What do you mean by that?” I say, “If they control oil resources, then they pull oil off the market in order to run the price up, and they will do so unless we abandon Israel, for example, or unless we abandon allies.
Rush called this “extremely visionary.” It’s certainly a bracing call to arms for our troops overseas, isn’t it?
