Algeria , Angola, Ecuador, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela You got it, they are the countries that are members of OPEC. And we all know what OPEC does, don't we? They control, for the most part, the price of a barrel of oil. Now, the majority of those countries also have something else in common. They are certainly no friend of the United States,for the most part. While they may do some things for show that make it appear that they like us, truth be told they really don't. It is not unusual for them not to like us. There are different reasons why they don't like us but in the end the result is the same. Now,let us move on to what is happening today. Today the United States is occupying one of their members country. An infidel on Muslim land. They know that they can not defeat us militarily so they have only one other way to fight back and that is with the price of oil. Osama Bin Laden said, himself, that he knew he could not defeat the Great Satan, as he put it, in military confrontation but he knew that there would be one other way, through our economy and that is what his end game was. And Mister Bush, of course, stepped right in and said, "OK Osama my good buddy, my long time business associate, here ya go... Kick the sheet out of us from the inside out." And guess what, he's doing it. The OPEC nations, together, are watching us kick ourselves from the inside out, defeating us, driving our nation into economic destruction. And all because we are occupying one of their member nations. Sure, there are some other factors involved with the escalating price of oil but don't fool yourself by saying that Iraq has nothing to do with it when, in fact, it is the driving force behind our enemies way of winning a war. And they are doing exactly that. Bin Laden said "come in", and Bush said "thank you." Osama Bin Laden, if he is still alive, is sitting back and relishing every moment of it. He got exactly what he wanted.
