I was just wondering how people back up the claim that war in Iraq "is all about the oil?"
Iraq already supplies enough oil to the US to make it the fifth largest supplier. OPEC controls oil prices worldwide. Saudi Arabia and Venezuala have consistently bowed to international pressure to lower oil prices in times of crisis by pumping extra oil.
How will installing a new government in Iraq give us an advantage over the current situation?
Let it be known that I think Bush does a lot to help out his friends in the oil insustry and big business (granting Haliburton exclusive contracts even while it was being investigated for bilking the government), but this objection has always seemed just a convenient cop-out by college-liberals.
