As time passes, the obvious emerges. The obvious, in this case, has been developed to obscure the rest. The rest, of course, being what can be described as "the unproven agenda." While it's widely assumed that certain military actions are about oil, it should be noted that the bigger picture contains an emission-reduced focal point. A product will sell better in suited conditions, and a well placed media hype-job on how soaring petrol prices will eat your baby around a release date seems like the ideal environment.
The synapses of the Great Masses are firing blanks - numbed down from current affairs programs hell bent on producing tears upon the stupid, the weak and the ignorant.
