No War For Oil?

Where are the rent-a-mob folks who were claiming the NATO intervention in Kosovo was motivated by oil pipelines, rather than an attempt to impede the sexist, racist, sectarian and agist practice of only slaughtering male Kosovar Albanian Muslims of fighting age, which discrimination they would doubtless oppose were it practised by a Western capitalist democracy with reasonable social welfare provision? Haven’t they got slightly better evidence that the war between Russian and Georgia is a “War For Oil”, not that it is?

Maybe they have identified Russia’s motives in intevening as exclusively humanitarian in character and incapable of leading to widespread post-war conflict or disorder, in which case one might ask how many of them also opposed the 2003 invasion of Iraq?
