Something More Sinister

Congress just approved billions of more for our continued illegal occupation of Iraq, after having spent billions to blow it up and billions more to rebuild, with billions likely spent in Afghanistan and billions more likely to be spent blowing up Iran and putting that back together. Considering we're rapidly reaching peak oil (if we haven't already), is it worth it to increase the national debt that much just to control what little precious oil is there? Wouldn't it be better to spend the money developing a new energy source using something that's plentiful in this country?

...or is there a more sinister reason behind all this?
