More than ever, the oil must be ours (tags)
Just like in the beginning. With the same passion and the same radicality of campaign "The oil is ours". If, in the 1950's, when our daily production was 2,300 barrels, the whole country has mobilized in favor of retaining the oil wealth to Brazilians, what to say about today, when, in only four fields, it is estimated that the reserves of pre-salt layer will produce 16 billion barrels?

U.S. dollar - a "worthless piece of paper." President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (tags)
And he is right. A $100 bill is worth the paper it's printed on and backed by nothing else. Up till 1933 the U.S. was backed in gold. You could exchange a $20 bill for an ounce of gold. And up till the 1960's the dollar was backed up by silver. You could go to the mint and trade paper dollars for silver. But now the dollar is backed by NOTHING and a dollar is worth nothing more then the paper it is printed on.
Iraqi Petroleum privatization, CIA MK-Ultra, PSYOPs (tags)
The upcoming petroleum privatization of Iraqi oil reserves is being watched by international community, never a better time for PSYOPS (psychological operations) military brainwashing campaigns here in north america.

America's Last War (tags)
Things are a bit trickier for our Texas-grown dictator, George W. Bush, burdened as he is by our annoying insistence on forcing him to run for the office he stole fair and square. Now that the invasion of Iraq has been universally acknowledged as an unjustifiable, counterproductive distraction from a war on terror that has yet to begin, Bush needs a still bigger war to distract us even more. Then, he figures, we'll forget about Iraq the way Iraq made us forget about Afghanistan. North Korea.
