Oil is at root of war

The media and most Americans do not want to face the truth about 9/11. We are at war over oil.

Osama bin Laden declared war on America when we occupied Saudi Arabia to keep its corrupt ruling monarchy in place. He declared that the U.S. government has stolen $30 trillion from Saudi Arabia.

Osama bin Laden was demanding $133 a barrel for oil, and his Saudi followers see their children's wealth being robbed by America.

The November 2001 edition of The Economist asks the question, "Could Osama bin Laden get $133 a barrel?" The answer is yes. By 2010, Saudi Arabia will have half the world's oil and all the cheap oil.

We are extracting and depleting 27 barrels of oil a day worldwide, while discovering only 6 barrels a day. A net gain of 14 million cars was added to the world's highways last year.

In this decade we have reached the downside of the oil industry, which will no longer be able to meet demand.

The Bush administration is run for and by Chevron, Exxon, Mobil and its partners in oil greed. The attack on the twin towers was an attack on these companies, as well as Enron and the Taliban.

Well before 9/11, as reported by a Houston paper, the Taliban met with Enron, and signed agreements for Enron to build an oil pipeline from Russia across Afghanistan through Pakistan and under the Gulf to the deep Saudi ports.

Enron was scheduled to get huge grants from the Bush-Cheney oil team to realize its "hidden energy plan still not revealed to the public" to build these pipelines.

The attack on the twin towers prevented the massive aid grants to Enron to keep it afloat, and it destroyed the house of cards called the stockmarket, which thrives and lives and dies on exploiting the last dwindling oil resources left.

The presidents of Shell/Texaco and BP/Amoco have publicly acknowledged that there will only be enough oil for half the world's needs in 20 years.

Our economy experts treat oil as a commodity, not as a resource that is being extracted and depleted at an astonishing rate.

About 40 percent, over $60 billion a year, of the Pentagon's budget is spent defending black gold in the Mideast quagmire. This is about world domination of oil in the last days (14,600 and counting down) of the oil industry.

If you can handle the truth, get rid of your SUV, put renewable solar systems on your home and buy a hybrid car. If you cannot handle the truth, put a small American flag on your SUV.

The American public is willing to conveniently ignore why we are at war and will be unable to handle the truth until the last barrel is gone.
