First, let me say that it wasn't easy going through all these anti-freedom websites to get a picture to post.

We all remember that during the war, and even still today after, we could turn on the news and see people all over the world with signs that read, "No Blood For Oil". People thought that we were going to war in Iraq so we could steal their oil. Well, here's some proof to the contrary. In the past three weeks, the price of gas has went up 3.61 cents a gallon. That's up 17 cents a gallon since late December, which raises the average price to $1.69 a gallon for regular. Now, if were stealing the oil from Iraq wouldn't that mean we would be getting our oil dead cheap? So in turn, wouldn't cheap oil mean cheap gas? But, as you can see, the prices are still going up. Here in Oklahoma the price is around $1.45 a gallon. So what's the deal? Are all the "No Blood For Oil" people wrong? Could we have went into Iraq to free the Iraqi people and not for all the oil we want?

And here's a little something else. A website called United States of Earth has an article up about the oil bribes Saddam made to counties thoughout the world. Some of nations mentioned are India, Bulgaria, Russia and everybody's favorite, France. There's another story out, but I can't find it right now, that talks about evidence found in Iraq that shows Saddam made bribes to Germany, Russia, China and France with oil. No big surprise there though. If someone could find that story, let me know.
