AUSTRALIA’S PM JOHN HOWARD REVEALS THE LIE! IT WAS ABOUT OIL AFTER ALL!

In a sensational speech today Australia’s Prime Minister John Howard revealed to the world that the war against Iraq was about oil.

For years I’ve been calling Howard a Lying Tyrant but it hasn’t stopped the dumb and gullible from continuing to vote for him and his warmongering cronies in the Liberal Party. Howard now shows himself once again to be a liar and a fraudster as he tells an audience of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute in Canberra in a major foreign policy speech that the war against Iraq was indeed about securing oil.

This is in direct contradiction to the lies that Howard told the Australian people just a few weeks before the invasion and plundering of Iraq which has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent people and displaced millions more from their homes when he told Jon Faine of Radio 3LO on 14 February 2003:

“Well can I deal with the question of oil. I mean this suggestion that America wants to do what it does because it wants to get hold of Iraqi oil is just completely wrong, it's completely dishonest, it's not based on any reality.”

A week later on 21 February 2003 he was lying again. A caller at Neil Mitchell’s radio show at Radio 3AW said: “I think the point is it's all about oil, it's about US domination and it's about reshaping the Middle East to suit Israel”, to which Howard responded, lying, of course, “Well it's not about any of those things. It's about the danger to Australia if countries like Iraq continue to have chemical and biological weapons, and those weapons get into the hands of international terrorists. That fundamentally is what this is about.”

But, of course, the repurcussions of Howards remarks don’t just affect the Howard government in Australia; it also reflects on Bush and Blair who are just as complicit in the lies.

I kind of figured that out after Halliburton surrounded Iraq's oil companies with endless mercenary armies. Halliburton, [ Blackwater = ancient slang for "oil" ] these merc's are investing alot of tax payer money in oil rich countries these day's, and are making out like bandits.
I can't think of anything worse than an enterprise that has nothing to lose.
Cheney is still loyal to Halliburton and will no doubt go back to running their industry when he's done controlling things from behind the Whitehouse desk and passing more laws to ensure America gets control of all the worlds resources.

These guys are low life gate crashers and their party is only getting started. Iran is next ,Russia , Venezuela, we ain't seen nothing yet. Unless the America people decide they've had enough, that is.

Bush admitted it in 2005. I have printed it and screamed about it, only to have it fall on deaf ears.

I have so many people telling me they are disappointed in bush , yet they still believe in him.......

I think this was no gaffe. It isn't news anyway except in the propaganda narrative world and will have no real world effect on anything that they can't easily wear.

It conveniently gets the armed intervention in the NT off the front pages just as the reality (i.e. that it is all about dispossession, uranium mining and nuclear waste dumps) was starting to creep into public consciousness.

Excellent post today.There's also a fantastic slap at Howard on www.homepagedaily.com

But Australians will sleep all te way to the ballot box.

It wasn't about oil. This is just the cover story. They're going public with this line now because too many people are waking up to the fact that it was actually a war for Israel's benefit.

Whatever the war is about,Howard, Bush and Blair need to realise they have the blood of innocents on their hands,and I hope it comes back to haunt them.

Thanks for that one. It's good to see that doubts over 9/11 are making it into mainstream politics because in doing so it also puts it into the mainstream news.
