[political-research] Bush (and the Neocons) Are Ruining American Access to Foreign Oil

[More on the worst presidential administration in American history front, which has two years left to hammer the final nails in the coffin of the United States.  By the time Bush and the neocons are through working their special magic, it may be impossible for anyone to repair the damage.]
It should be clear to everyone by now that Bush' militarism has alienated the very sources of oil that we rely on for a steady supply at a reasonable price. Just as a change in driving habits here in the U.S. could pressure the price, a decrease in Bush's saber-rattling would unquestionably bring oil prices back down to Earth, and not just for U.S. market. A decrease in militarism by this American regime would cause a revival of the international cooperation which marked past periods of relatively low oil costs.

"If you can stop the politicians from making negative statements, I am sure you will see almost 15 dollars disappear from the price." Qatar's oil minister told reporters today.

On the other foot, a continuation of the present intimidation campaign against Iran could lead to an actual military attack which would ensure prohibitive oil prices would remain in place for years, marked by increases of over $100 a barrel. No amount of manipulation could wipe away that self-inflicted wound on our nation, come to pass as a result of the actions of this lame-duck loser.
