President Bush answered growing antiwar protests yesterday with a fresh reason for US troops to continue fighting in Iraq: protection of the country's vast oil fields, which he said would otherwise fall under the control of terrorist extremists.
The nice thing about trotting out this rationale now, aside from the refreshing honesty, is that we can recycle it when it comes time to get tough in Venezuela. Mission accomplished!
