    Your all idiots. We're not fighting this war for oil..obviously, otherwise it would be cheap.
    Second, foreign oil makes bush's oil cheaper (from his wells in texas) if he were really the evil sob people thought he was, he would just bomb iraq to death and make america more dependant on HIS oil.

    Texas doesn't have any oil anymore stephen. The state had to switch from oil wells to oil refineries. Meaning the state relies on cheap foreign oil to make money.

    Great photo by the way. Brilliant! : )

    This is a fantastic picture - reminded me of Close Encounters of the Third Kind - special edition.

    I borrowed it to illustrate a blog post - "are the arabs running out of oil?".

    Here's a link to your photo in situ:

    Cheers and thanks for sharing.
