Me, a cynic

Not that I'm a cynic, but I wonder if there's a relationship, somehow, between
  • Hurricane Katrina and our focus south,
  • the seven or more oil rigs floating loose in the Gulf of Mexico,
  • the price of gas at the pump, and
  • the President's new rationale for the war in Iraq: oil.
President Bush answered growing antiwar protests yesterday with a fresh reason for US troops to continue fighting in Iraq: protection of the country's vast oil fields, which he said would otherwise fall under the control of terrorist extremists.
Nah, I'm sure there's no link...
