It seems the Army has already contracted with an oil company to handle the extinguishing of oil fires and rebuild/repair of the oil infrastructure in Iraq. The multi-million dollar contract was awarded to a company called Halliburton, a company whose CEO was Dick Cheney until a couple of years ago.
CNN Headline News just now:
One of their "journalists" is doing a piece about protests. They show a bunch of people in Australia going off over the fact that they're going to send 2000 soldiers to Iraq.
She talked about how a poll from a few months ago showed 75% of Australians were opposed to the war. The rest of this is directly quoted from her:
"A recent poll now shows that 50% of Australians SUPPORT the war. So, just because you see all those protests doesn't mean they're the majority."
FUCK YOU, CNN. That's the most flimsy, unnecessary, and obviously pro-war statement an allegedly unbiased journalist could make.
Man, I wish The Daily Show was doing 24 hour coverage. I mean, they're obviously biased too, but at least if you flipped back and forth from Daily Show to CNN, you'd get some semblance of balance.
