Bush admits it’s a war for oil

Make this new Iraqi war rationale number. . . oh, hell, I’ve lost count.

George Bush is holding a press conference at this very hour (it’s still going as I write this), and he has just said that we need to be in Iraq because the region is rich with oil and we need to secure that oil to keep it and its wealth from falling into the hands of the terrorists.

Maybe I’ll write more when I stop laughing.

Update: The text of the presser is now up. Here's the exact quote:

We can't tolerate a new terrorist state in the heart of the Middle East, with large oil reserves that could be used to fund its radical ambitions, or used to inflict economic damage on the West.
