Why So Many Wars

From Flickr Group "War is Hell.

I oscillate between environmental issues and political issues. I have been ambivalent about the war in Iraq since the beginning. My husband has been against it from day one. The geopolitical reality of this war presents an ugly truth about the industrial world’s dependency on oil. The world needs the Middle East Oil and until we find an alternative energy source, we have no choice but to do what ever it takes to protect our interests. It really becomes the consumer’s responsibility to demand an alternative. Our purchasing power can shape the behavior of the market and corporations follow the market. How do we awaken the sleeping giant from its slumber? When will we wake up and end this war?
