Yesterday i posted on BBC.com remarks on a forum about Iraqi elections and how the evidence that Bush admiits was flawed was cooked by his own administration.

That evening i got a call from the BBC who asked me to be on a debate taking place at 7.30 PM on BBC world service. I ended up debating with an air headed American lady who seemed to think that europeans hate Americans and that Dubya has brought freedom and democracy to Iraq and stopped the torture and the killing and rape!

I was quick to rebute her and tell all around the world who listen to the BBC world service, that Bush doesnt give a shit about Iraqi democracy otherwise he would be taking out Mugabe and castro and that the real reason for the war was petro dollar hedgmony/recycling and peak oil.

I managed to say peak oil around 3 or 4 times. I was just hoping that some of them of those cool aid drinkers actually googled peak oil and petro dollar recyling and now quite possibly are connecting the DOTS?

some chance!

BBC was quick to cut me off, i think they saw it as off topic as the program was about the elections, however i think it all fits into the big picture.


Thanks

Good work Smiffy - all part of making the phrase 'Peak Oil' seem part of common vocabulary.

Thanks,

just trying to raise awarness. Once it goes mainstream there be a lot of people asking our reps what they plan to do, and maybe we can get some coherant policy going or a year zero plan? at least thought out, so that when the shit hits the fan we can at least be a bit more prepared than not prepared at all,

secondly, i'm getting outta Malta next march, completley unsubstanable here, if anyone wants to know why and why small resourceless islands will get whacked first, just ask me.

I am in quite a good situation to advise you all.
