Laobaojun: Which is absolute profiteering bull crap, as only 3% of US oil is imported from Iraq.
Farking treasonous, self-serving actions by the US oil industry.

CruJones: Baghdad is not going to fall.  There's not that many of these guys, and can probably be handled exclusively by air.  Also, their troops probably won't all run away this time.  Maybe.

destrip: Iraq was under the power of a greedy dictator for years, gas prices were cheap and stable ($1.29-1.39 from the 80s - early 2000s)
We took over Iraq, gas prices went up to unprecedented highs (remember, most gas pumps were, by design, incapable of registering more than $1.99 a gallon?)
Iraq achieved "independence," gas prices stayed up.
Iraq has issues again, gas prices go up.
Something doesn't quite add up here.

As far as the yahoos taking over cities there, there are relatively few roads between cities. As the "militants" are a bunch of towelheads riding around in Toyota pickups, why can't we, or the Iraqi army for that matter, just bomb or blockade the main highways leading into Baghdad? If the militants can't get there they can't take anything over. Blast 'em into the stone age like we did to Saddam's army when they were fleeing Kuwait during Desert Storm.

Better yet, go high tech and use an EMP weapon to disable the pickups!

But I've been assured by many Fark Independents our involvement in Iraq had nothing to do with oil. So this can't possibly be true.

zerkalo: Isis already holds Tikrit. Whether or not they can keep it is up in the air. Gas be going up either way




Tikrit is where Donald Rumsfeld said Saddam kept his WMDs.

If ISIS finds them, the stuff might really hit the fan.

I can't think of a single English word that people make a bigger deal about knowing than "fungible".

Get over yourselves; damn near everyone knows that stupid word.  Learn to use Nauseated/Nauseous correctly and you can start feeling proud of yourself.

At the time they were.

But since we're posting snippy quotes, how about a few that are more relevant?

"I am very optimistic about -- about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. "

I really, really wish Obama would step up to the podium and say:

"Know what? We tried. We farking tried. It's come to the point that the United States has two options now...one, we turn Iraq into a glass parking lot, but we're not doing that. Our only other option is to bring everyone home. That's what we're doing. I'm sorry for the people that sided with us, but we honestly can't afford to police your country anymore, especially when a lot of the population sides with power-hungry assholes who are smart enough to make race and religion their bread and butter. If that's what you want, that's what you get.

"I get it, WE get it. You don't want us here. We're leaving. Good luck, you'll need it."
