Another costly war over oil
One the one hand, we have your average person facing service cuts, wage cuts and rising prices and on the other hand, billions can be found to fund yet another war.
There has been war after war over oil. It's such a pity that the Government has not shown similar compassion in other conflicts around the world.
But then Palestine, Zimbabwe and Kashmir do not float on an enormous oil reservoir.
The only possible outcome for this war will be more bloodshed through another ground war, otherwise, the oil reserves cannot possibly be secured.
