Oil Equals War
OIL has a bloody history. The ghost of petroleum hovers in the background even of WARS that have liberty & democracy among their rationales. Blatant or veiled, the grab for oil resources has been a major factor behind many conflicts & military deployments. Oil's been deemed a "strategic" commodity. Tomorrow, (Saturday) morning, at 7:30 on Puffman SPORTS Trivia, The book, "No War For Oil; U.S. Dependency And The Middle East," authored by Ivan Eland, Senior Fellow & Director of the Center on Peace & Liberty at The Independent Institute, is up for grabs. It's a page turner for sure! One of Eland's fellow professors proclaims, "No War for Oil" not only provides an invaluable account of the misguided policies that have led to ever-increasing U.S. military involvement in the Middle East, but also shows how the de-militarization of U.S. energy policy would better serve the nation's long-term interests." The 1st caller in with the correct answer to my sports trivia questions WINS "No War for Oil." I've put together a sports trivia stumper on one of major league baseball's premium pitchers for Saturday morning. Here's a hint...the man once pitched for the Houston Astros! Check out "No War for Oil" from The Independent Institute at: www.independent.org, & then listen to WIN Saturday morning on Puffman Sports Trivia!
