There is no such thing as “unintended consequences”

Why do I hear people decrying the invasion of Iraq as a merciless opportunistic grab for oil in one breath, and then complain about the high price of gas in the next? Do they even hear themselves?

We have invaded Iraq with the stated intention of effecting a regime change. Nowhere except the accusations of liberals was the statement that we were doing this for the oil. Why is it a problem that, even when faced with the opportunity, we are not stealing the oil?

You can’t have it both ways.
