    They have been interested in destabilizing the Middle East from the get go.

    Why?

    Reason #1: High Oil Prices.

    Destabilization of the Middle East -> High Oil Prices.  Reason number two is of course warmaking and chaos which the neocons love because they think it is good for Israel, and a high percentage of American contractors/businesspeople love (remember that Bush's 25% = 75 million + Americans) because they can get rich off other people's misery and death.

    Of course, said destabilization was helped by the short-selling conducted by Saudi and emirate funds over the past 18 months.

    Notice how quickly the price of oil dropped after the moratorium on short-selling went into effect in July?

    Anyway this is yet another lesson from Bush/Cheney 101: create a war to lock in long-term profits and power.

    After all, ya didn't think they'd leave quietly didja'?
