<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>My question for people here is... shouldn't Bush be satisfied now that he has (will have) Iraq? Since he got his war and future control of one of the largest supplies of crude oil in the world, can't he give up on destroying the refuge now for what would certainly be a drop in the bucket? <p><hr></blockquote><p>As i understand it the oil pumps and equipment is so badly damaged it will have to be completely replaced, and even after that it will be another 10 years until they are profitable. And before any of that can happen there will have to be a private company to finically make this possible. If that is true then Bush may think it is wise to have Alaska in the meantime.<br><br>
Republicans fell two votes short in their best chance yet at opening an Alaska wildlife refuge to oil drilling.<br><br>By a 52-48 vote Close call, but they are going to try to pass it again, for sure! <br><br>

It took him a while but he has finally united the country, against him.<br><br>Think of the human suffering we could have prevented if the anti-war protesters had stayed in the streets and every man and woman who now dislikes this war today had joined them back then? <br><br>I thought it was impossibly unlikely that he would invade Iraq. Sort of like how I feel about rumors of invading Iran. This time, could we all get out in the street and voice our displeasure?<br><br>I think we should be doing it for this Iraq escalation. I just started watching my week's Daily shows. Daily: "20,000 troops? There are 150,000 already there. 20 is like a gratuity. A bad tip!<br><br>Does anyone think that this could possibly do anything but make a situation which has grown worse by the month even worse than it is today?<br><br><br><br><br><br>
