Good Thing it's Not About the Oil

Came to a horrible realization early in the morning. Stop me if you've heard this before.

Here's a story from back in July on about an oil pipeline from Iraq to Iran.

Here's a story from Asia Times in June about the growing cooperation between Russia, China, and Iran.

Here's a story from the India Times about the US planning an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.
If you go bck to the Asia Times story - buried in there they talk about arms deals and cooperation on defense.

Now, I'll be the first to admit that there's a chain of supposition there that may not correlate with facts on the ground - but I don't think Russia and China will take an attack on their oil buddy Iran lying down. And, with a pro-Iranian Islamic government in Iraq, and American popularity being what it is there, guess where their oil's going? (Hint: Not the U.S.)

Good thing we stuck Chalabi in as Minister of Oil, isn't it? Will that stick after we attack Iran, should we do so?

And for those of you that think that the Administration couldn't possibly be that stupid, I point you to their past performance.

Heckuva job you're doing, Bush.
