Not So Fast Forked-Tongue Cowboy...

Looks like the march to Middle East democracy has been dealt a lethal blow. I guess Bush figured the Chinese and Russians were as dumb as the folks in America who voted for the faux cowboy, which only goes to prove how stupid he is.

No media blitz, swiftboating, Rove machinations or dirty tricks are gonna get in the way of China's path to economic superpower; and they've got the firepower to make sure of that.

The Washington Post reports that China, in a race for time, completed a $100 billion oil deal with Iran, "ahead of the possible imposition of international sanctions against Iran." The agreement "would allow a Chinese state-owned energy firm to take a leading role in developing a vast oil field in Iran, complicating the Bush administration's efforts to isolate the Middle Eastern nation and roll back its nuclear development plans."

You reckon...?

Now that Bushie has his dirty hands on Iraqi oil under the guise of his "freedom on the march" meme, other military world leaders aren't about to let the US grab all the oil in the Middle East and hog the show.

How disastrous is our militarism that now we have Iraq siding with Iran, and with China in the picture, there ain't a damn thing the US can do about it.

Forget the fact that our troops are stretched beyond the breaking point. Hell, if Bush thought he could grab Iran, he'd kick off the draft again.

Remember, we're addicted to oil. Gotta have it...gotta have it. But the bottom line, no way, no how is China gonna sit back and meekly let us take control of all the oil fields in the world.

You're totally right about China not sitting back and letting the U.S. control the world oil supply.

You really have a great blog. I enjoy your comments at Capitol Annex, too.
