The drumbeat for war with Iran - who benefits? who pays?

"And what were the results of last week's missile crisis in the Gulf? Tensions rose, strengthening Tehran's embattled Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. And oil prices shot from $136 a barrel to a record $147.

That $11-a-barrel spike alone translates into $25 million a day infresh revenue for Ahmadinejad and Co. And as the United Statesimports 13 million of the 20 million barrels we daily consume, that$11 spike in price translates into $143 million more sucked out ofthe U.S. economy every day -- into the coffers of Canada, Mexico,Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and OPEC.

Can we not see who benefits and who pays for this war talk?

Every day the war drums beat, the mullahs get richer and we get poorer. Which raises the question. Was this mini-missile crisis cooked up by the mullahs to rip off Uncle Sam? For by week's end it appeared the Americans had been had, big-time."

"A Democratic House that came to power denouncing the rush to war onIraq is about to vote to demand that Bush commit an act of war against Iran.

The front men for 362 (House Concurrent Resolution 362 - Dancing with Sprites) are liberal Gary Ackerman of New York and conservative Mike Pence of Indiana. But the juice behind them is that of the Israeli lobby AIPAC, which is marching in step with Israel."
