Blood for oil

The thing that most struck me when I read Rupert Read's review of Craig Taylor's book Moralism was how odd it was that Taylor implies criticism of an SUV-driver with a "No blood for oil" sticker on it and that Read criticizes this criticism by suggesting only that the driver might believe in collective but not individual action against blood for oil. Why not point out that you can be against oil-related war without being against the use of oil? But now Read makes that very point 
The slogan is a political slogan, protesting against war to buy oil. There is no inconsistency between such protest and driving a large car.
The wrong has been made right.
