    GREELEY, Colo., Nov. 4 -- During the run-up to the invasion of Iraq, President Bush and his aides sternly dismissed suggestions that the war was all about oil. "Nonsense," Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld declared. "This is not about that," said White House spokesman Ari Fleischer.

    Now, more than 3 1/2 years later, someone else is asserting that the war is about oil -- President Bush.

    It's always about oil or other resources unless of course it's about putting in a government that will do whatever TPTB want it to do. Everything else that they say is just an excuse, which as you can see, changes.
