I've believed the same thing. Iraq was knee deep in alot more than WMD.
If I was a conspiracy theorist, I'd start looking at the French and Germans also. Thier huge push for a european superstate to "counter" the US is a little too convienent. Let's see, the US takes a massive attack on a major financial center causing much havoc and putting us into crisis mode demanding all our attention. Don't forget that billions were reportedly moved all around the markets just prior to 9/11.
Then, the we have to use more resources and and turn our attention from domestic issues/economy to the War on Terror.
The weasels complete refusal and active opposition to make things go easy in the UN again ties us up for months. Euro keeps gaining on dollar. Big push made to change oil "dollars" to "euros". Canada and Mexico, who border the US and just really can't compete with us in any way are also on board the weasel ship. Our two closest neighbors who should be with us just because they are our two closest neighbors.
Things were going well with Russia too, Pootie was loved here. Why the big switcharoo? Not only about oil, Russia has nice reserves of thier own, maybe Cold war era debt, but a free Iraq with a market economy would be much better equipped to pay off that debt. So whats with Pootie?
I'd think the whole world hates us, our success, our freedom and our way of life. And IF I was a conspiracist, I'd say a massive campaign to just put the screws to the US was organized behind the scenes, and we could be in the beginning stages of WW4 as well as the War on Terror. WW4 using and manipulating markets, manipulation of opinion by anti-american press, world leaders cutting deals just to screw the americans and try to take us down.
Glad I'm not a conspiracist.
Oh, boy. What a post to wake up to. I'm not a conspiracy theorist either but you sure have made me think in a different direction. All in all, I felt a lot more comfortable when I was only worried about Islamic extremists! I'll be sure to re-read your post a few times and mull all that over.
