Oil interests use facade of evil to inflame the masses

On Jan. 24, The Union printed a letter in which I stated that it was time for Bush to “show and tell” what he knew of Saddam Hussein’s cache of weapons that would justify war. A friend informed me that oil is the driving force and that there are interests in our country who want to control all of the world’s oil reserves. These oil interests know that to accomplished this, they need to create a facade that there is an evil that threatens our existence. Saddam’s cache is the facade to inflame the masses that war is justified.

This evil, as these interests would have us, the masses, believe, is even more evil in that they worship a god different than ours. Since the beginning of time people have been duped into fighting wars with the simple rationale that “god is on our side.” As a veteran of the Korean War, I’m proud to be an American and will keep supporting the men and women of the armed forces who defend this great country and my right of freedom of speech.
