"Oil Cops?" Wear the name proudly

Bill Hobbs takes umbrage at Harold Ford Jr. name-calling US troops as "oil cops" and thereby trying to demean their mission. I guess those of us who served in ODS were the original "oil cops" in Mr. Ford's world. I don't like the effor to diminish the effort of the troops, but I am not particularly offended by the nickname.

As I have posted before:
It's about oil and oil and the interconnection between the "Functioning Core" and the "Non-Integrating Gap" and the forces of freedom and the forces of repression and regression to the 14th century... Next time you watch Hotel Rwanda, ponder what the lack of oil cost...

So, Iraq, with a new government and the promise of a constitution is a debacle. What do you say of Kosovo, Rwanda. Ivory Coast, Uganda, Darfur...?
Thank God for the "oil cops" - Iraq's best hope for freedom.

What has Harold Ford, Jr. done to set free millions of people? Who is he to cast aspersions?
