Hasn't the U.S. government already spent more on the military in terms of money and oil to make the "we went into Iraq and the rest of the middle east" theory completely idiotic? Think about how much oil and resources in general we use for the tanks and other vehicles we have over there.
I know this is supposed to be a joke, but what annoys me are that a large number of people actually believe the U.S. only went in for oil. I've talked to people in my own town who believe this, and it baffles me
ps American myself if that wasn't clear

Well to take it a bit further, and get flamed out the ass in the process,
When Bush said Saddam had nukes, we invaded. There weren't any found. They did find all the materials used to construct them in secret facility's.

We went in to find WMD's which saddam had used in the past (mustard gas) and that the invasion wasn't exactly speedy, he had months to get all illegal weaponry out of country.

A lot of people somehow forget that wars are expensive but suddenly remember when talking about the federal debt.

They also forget that we import the most oil from Mexico and Canada. Or that we have plenty here but are unwilling to use it.

The best part is that other countries backed our involvement in those wars in the beginning and still do to an extent. The gulf war (I know, not one of the ones we are accused of doing for oil) Bush was actually pushed by Margaret Thatcher to intervene. People still love to think that America does everything to be "world police" when really we just do the dirty work for the UN while the member countries help give us the supplies.

Right? When America finishes going down the drain the world will have to learn to clean up after it's self for once!

So you're thinking America will fail?
The American army went in to change the government to a democracy, and also for resources.
