Plenty of CASH for Iraqi jihadis. Stop funding our destruction; seize the oil!

I think Iraq will fall into the hands of radical Islam sooner or (not much) later. So, our aid money is going to end up supporting jihad. And, when the oil infrastructure gets fixed, that should take care of the jihadis for decades to come. Even now, Bush likes to point to the schools that have been fixed, but I've yet to see a single report about what is being taught in these schools. I'll bet it's not the Bill of Rights! Anyway, on our way out of Iraq, we must be sure to destroy the new U.S. embassy; spare us the spectacle of jihadis sworming all over it yelling "Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!"

As for oil money, these M.E. states are tyrannies and there is no such thing as tyrant rights. We should not recognize any right to use oil money to further jihad. There's no moral reason to allow the world's economy to be held hostage to this bunch of freak states. We should be looking into seizing the oil fields and facilities instead of letting them be used to fund our own destruction. If war breaks out--and it should, this must be done as soon as possible.
