So...maybe the insurgency is about religeous fanaticism, Sunni/Shia. Maybe about American colonialism, Israel. Looks to ME as if it is about OIL, and NOT oil that we are going to be able to pump into our gigantic SUV machine!
As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
