Good luck young Americans
I don't think it's oil this time.
@SimonPetrikov, Most things with Iran involve oil moving through the strait of Hormuz
@SimonPetrikov, if it’s the Middle East, it’s about oil. The provisional name for invading Iraq in 2003 was Operation Iraqi Liberation, they changed the last word to freedom when they realized the acronym was OIL. This is a joke btw.
@SimonPetrikov, it's oil and an election
@Spetsnaz , we’re net exporters this time though. Plus when trump tried to leave Syria all the Dems freaked out. If it’s not oil and it’s not war....why are we there still?
@Pubmarine Shamwich, were net exporters but their control of the strait of Hormuz essentially means they can massively increase the price of oil by closing that strait. While the US makes more oil than it uses, it’s refined all around the world, and gas prices in the US are still affected by global prices changes.
@Spetsnaz , if we're net exporters....wouldn't we want the price of oil to go up?
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, no, while that makes money for the us oil industry, it’s a burden on average people, and typically hurts the economy as people have less to invest into the economy as a result. When basic commodities increase in price it only helps those who sell that exclusively. It only really helps countries like KSA and Russia, whose economies are based on energy and not as diversified as the US economy.
@Spetsnaz , makes sense to me.
Jesus is my Nīģga!
@Rudolph Schmidt , hes the son of the original G
That's their plan, shjt. Ladies and gentlemen, we are all screw
Lately I’ve been wondering who makes these sort of things. I seriously think most of these are part of a coordinated plan of disinformation.
@Unitard, Spetsnaz is a communist troll
@Unitard, how is this misinformation? Afgan. Iraq syria. All for oil. Any person that isnt a fool knows this is why we want to enter or have control of these countries.
@big freedom, and you, my friend, are an oligarcharian troll. 🤫
@Implicit88, I’m an oligarch, or in favor of an oligarchy? I don’t think you understand that term very well, or have completely misread me.
@Implicit88, and the moon landing wasn’t real
@big freedom, i thought we were all@just making outlandish comments.
@Implicit88, well, he has openly advocated for communism...has to be a troll, unless he’s that mentally ill.
@Implicit88, afghanistan was not for oil. They barely have any oil deposits. Afghan was for probably opioids.
@cruss4612, they also have huge mineral deposits worth trillions. As far as I know, nobody’s tapped that yet. I find it interesting how everyone favorite thing to claim is that we went anywhere in the Middle East for oil but, we have not taken any of it. Personally I think we should have but no, we made sure to help rebuild their infrastructure.
If you want peace prepare for war.
Well they had to do something about no longer being the majority of voting age people.
Well, you make all these jokes and memes about suicide...
Do they... do they not make you read "The Monkey's Paw" in school anymore?! Have you never seen a single Wishmaster movie?! There's at least FIVE of those damn things...
All part of the plan.
@megamanx181x, sadly. The poor fight the riches wars by giving them their greatest asset. Liberty.
@Implicit88, so true
