Forget oil. Something really drastic is happening!!!Matno

Oil prices going up is one thing, but I just read an article that said that the ongoing civil war in the Ivory Coast is affecting cocoa bean exports and spiking the cost of chocolate! Help! I can't afford that!

As for Iraq, I still can't decide what I think we should do. On the one hand, I definitely think war is justified. On the other hand, I know that if we go to war, we're not going to take care of things in a week and move on (like we absolutely can and should do). Instead, we'll probably drag things out for months or even years with lots of unnecessary American casualties.

you're right less American involvement in other poor countries in need of aid won't create a power vacuum at all - the US should bomb-n-run for ultimate safety and effectiveness
