Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee

5.08.2005

Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA) strayed off message on the war in Iraq recently in a letter mailed to his constituents. The letter in question states:

“I feel quite strongly that as long as we have our military in the Middle East fighting so that we can continue to purchase oil from that region, we have an obligation to find alternatives to foreign oil. It is difficult to justify the death of even one soldier when we are not doing everything in our power to explore options for oil within our country.”

As the article states though, this may not be a slip so much as another defense now being offered by some for the continuing war.

Reasons for the Iraq War:
  • Weapons of mass destruction
  • Saddam Hussein has ties to Al Qaeda
  • Free the Iraqi people
  • Democracy
  • Oil!
