    In headlines today, we report that a new academic study has concluded
    foreign governments are 100 times more likely to intervene in civil wars if
    the troubled state is an oil-rich nation. Petros Sekeris of the University
    of Portsmouth said his research shows “clear evidence that countries with
    potential for oil production are more likely to be targeted by foreign
    intervention if civil wars erupt.”

    In related news, Royal Dutch Shell has signed an $11 billion deal with Iraq
    to build a massive oil plant in the Basra.

    people with his lynching comment. but thats what you get from coward white
    men, cant find a bold white man not carrying a camera, gun or badge

    Jeff fucking roorda that bitch yelled at the alderman to control the room
    when ppl were talking the alderman said I will conduct my meeting the way I
    want roorda then charged at the alderman and a woman was in his way so he
    grabbed and pushed her then he got escorted out by police instead of
    getting arrested for assault on the woman and if you don’t believe me it is
    all on film and there is a clear picture of him grabbing the woman and the
    woman has a scratch on her forehead from him there is no fucking
    accountability for fucking pigs

    What great rhetoric, equate your civil war to a world conflict, what a
    farce. If this becomes a world conflict, it will not be because of an
    attack on freedom world wide but rather a wholesale destabilization of a
    sovereign country by outside powers.

    People are *still* against legalization? Why is it so hard to comprehend
    the pros of it?

    Only in Israel can you invade a sovereign country carrying out an
    assassination and then label the retaliation an attack on your sovereignty
    despite occurring in illegal occupied annexed territory.
