The Oil War
Instead of watching the Sunday Morning propaganda parade,
The War for Oil
It's the story of the hidden agenda behind the invasion of Iraq,
And how much this war has been about the control
of a dwindling resource.
It was broadcast on BBC2 on the The Money Programme,
Wednesday March 26th.
Two years ago.
And speaking of being in the dark.
Read this Toronto Star story on how the war is going.
America kept in dark as carnage escalates
U.S. TV accused of ignoring situation
Iraq on brink of civil war, analysts say

"We are on the edge of civil war," said Noah Feldman, a New York University professor and chief U.S. adviser to Iraq on the writing of the country's new constitution.
Yet, somehow this sharp surge in deadly bombings, assassinations and kidnappings in Iraq has occurred largely under the radar in the United States.
No public figures have risen this week to decry this most recent carnage, no one is breaking into regular programming on cable news shows.
The left-leaning American Progress Action Fund said in a statement yesterday:
"America's most important foreign policy venture is teetering on the edge of civil war, but it is being ignored by television networks.
Television media — still the primary source of news for most Americans — is failing miserably," it said. "America is being kept in the dark."
While American TV viewers turn to runaway brides, fast-food fingers and the daily Michael Jackson aberration, they are missing the story of an increasingly massive foreign policy failure.
And now, there are riots in Afghanistan, and Uzbeskistan.
And our War for Oil continues.
And the Earthfamily suffers.
