AN EDITORIAL BY JEFF SMITH

AMERICANS HAVE TO WAKE UP AND SEE WHAT GEORGE BUSH IS DOING. UNDER THE GUISE OF FIGHTING TERRORISM HE IS PURGED TO INVADE AND DOMINATE ALL THE OIL PRODUCING NATIONS OF THE MIDDLE EAST. NOW THAT IRAQ HAS BEEN SECURED THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION NOW STARTS THE RUMBLINGS THAT THERE IS TROUBLE IS SAUDI ARABIA. HE HAS SENT 3 CIA COVERT OPERATIONS INTO SAUDI ARABIA TO INSTIGATE A TERRORIST UPRISING FOR THE PURPOSE TO INVADE THIS COUNTRY AND SECURE THE OIL. YOU WILL SEE A COUPLE OF THINGS HAPPEN IN THE NEAR FUTURE, THE FIRST IS THERE WILL BE A (SO CALLED) GROWING PROBLEM IN SAUDI ARABIA THAT WILL BE REPORTED IN THE NEWSPAPERS AND ON TV, THEN THERE WILL BE AN ASSINATION OF THE ROYAL FAMILY BLAMED ON INTERNAL TERRORST BUT CARRIED OUT BY CIA OPERATIVES. THEN THERE WILL BE THE INVASION "TO RESTORE THE MONARCHY" BUT IN ACUTALITY TO SECURE THE SAUDI OIL FOR MR. BUSH AND HIS OIL COMPANY BUDDIES. IT WILL NOT STOP THERE, IRAN, KUWAIT AND THE REST OF THE OIL PRODUCING STATES IN THE MIDDLE EAST WILL FOLLOW. A LOT OF SO CALLED PATRIOTS WILL SAY "SO WHAT" I REPLY TO THAT THAT ALL OF THE OIL IN THAT REGION IS NOT WORTH ONE DEAD AMERICAN. AND NOW THERE IS TALK OF RE OPENING THE DRAFT IS THIS IS DONE IT MUST BE MET WITH ALL RESITANCE POSSIBLE. BECAUSE WHO IS GOING TO PAY FOR THIS OIL? THE LIVES OF YOURS SONS AND DAUGHTERS WILL.

I AM A CONCERNED CITIZEN AGAINST THIS MILITARY ACTION AND WANTED TO SHARE MY FEELINGS. I MANAGE A KASH AND KARY FOOD STORE IN CENTRAL FLORIDA
