Comments: Watch out, Chavez

The figures Bush cited are interesting: by limiting his numbers to crude refined to oil, he overstates US dependency on foreign oil by about a factor of two. That's not accidental: its scare tactics and its sabre-rattling.

The rest of it is windowdressing, so that the next war for oil looks less like a war of choice....

I'd give a lot for a national media outlet that printed the facts next to stories like this, you know? Someone that just laid out the truth.

And it's not an anti-Bush thing. I dont care who's in office. I'd just like some unvarnished facts.
