It would seem our President implemented the surge to protect the new 104 acres embassy being built in Iraq.
The Valhalla, should be full very soon, because a proposal to extend the tour of duty for every active duty soldier in Iraq by three (3), months is waiting for approval.
The fortress-like compound rising beside the Tigris River in Bagdad will be the largest of its kind in the world, the size of Vatican City, with the population of a small town.
We are not intending to leave Iraq, not when BP and Shell in Britain, and Exxon and Chevron in the US, will be signing deals of up to 30 years to extract Iraq’s oil and live in the new embassy that is being built to house them.
There's no way this President will agree to bring our soldiers home anytime soon, they are needed to insure the safety and protection of the new embassy and oil that will be flowing out of Iraq.
The surge will probably go on through all of this year and into 08, with no let up on the all volunteer service.
This President shows a lot of nepotism to oil companies and big business, at the expense of our soldiers. This move is very pithy and I'm sure that our Congress and Senate knows about it.
There's a law called the hydrocarbon law and if passed, the law will make available to Exxon/Mobil, Chevron/Texaco, BP/Amoco, and Royal Dutch/Shell about 4/5’s of the stupendous petroleum reserves in Iraq.
So, Valhalla had better make room, because we are not coming out of Iraq any time soon... look for the veto.
What say you?
