Why the sudden OBSESSION with going after Saddam you say? The answer is two-fold:

It's OIL stupid!

It's GREATER Israel stupid!

Now that the "Bush/Sharon Axis" has been established, the so-called "war" on terrorism will be widened to accommodate the WAR for oil given that the U.S. is governed by the OIL industry as represented by Bush jr and Cheney otherwise known as Mr. Harken and Mr. Halliburton.

In addition, the Israeli premiership is in the hands of a right-winger whose interest lies in diverting attention from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and creating a "greater Israel" using American BLOOD to achieve his objectives.

In short, right-wingers in Israel and the U.S. have formed an alliance that will lead to full Israeli participation in the military assault on Iraq, regardless of actions/INactions Saddam may take vis-a-vis Israel.

By the time members of the "Bush/Sharon Axis" achieve their objectives, the relatively peaceful world of the Clinton years will be remembered as a wonderful but short-lived dream since they will have antagonized friend and foe alike to the point that a major BLOODY conflict will be inevitable:

In Iraqi War Scenario, Oil Is Key Issue - U.S. Drillers Eye Huge Petroleum Pool By Dan Morgan and David B. Ottaway

A U.S.-led ouster of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein could open a bonanza for American oil companies long banished from Iraq, scuttling oil deals between Baghdad and Russia, France and other countries, and reshuffling world petroleum markets, according to industry officials and leaders of the Iraqi opposition.

Although senior Bush administration officials say they have not begun to focus on the issues involving oil and Iraq [JOKE!] , American and foreign oil companies have already begun maneuvering for a stake in the country's huge proven reserves of 112 billion barrels of crude oil, the largest in the world outside Saudi Arabia.

Positioning of U.S. and foreign oil companies has already begun since everyone seems convinced that the "train has left the station and is headed toward Iraq," regardless of the Shrub's protestations to the contrary.

"Indeed, the mere prospect of a new Iraqi government has fanned concerns by non-American oil companies that they will be excluded by the United States, which almost certainly would be the dominant foreign power in Iraq in the aftermath of Hussein's fall. Representatives of many foreign oil concerns have been meeting with leaders of the Iraqi opposition to make their case for a future stake and to sound them out about their intentions.

Since the Persian Gulf War in 1991, companies from more than a dozen nations, including France, Russia, China, India, Italy, Vietnam and Algeria, have either reached or sought to reach agreements in principle to develop Iraqi oil fields, refurbish existing facilities or explore undeveloped tracts. Most of the deals are on hold until the lifting of U.N. sanctions.

But Iraqi opposition officials made clear in interviews last week that they will not be bound by any of the deals."

Hopefully, the day will come soon when right-wing bullies, both in the U.S. and Israel, are sent back home to pasture....before the whole world explodes in flames.
