I may be wrong.
We are in Iraq because we are terrified of WMDs in the hands of religious fanatics who hate us. And 9/11 cost us a million jobs.
It would have been very hard to invade Iraq if they had no oil or other means to get back on their feet. But that's about all that oil had to do with it.
We have been there as invited peacekeepers since June 28, 2004.
Rudy Guiliani ( sp ) actually suggested during presidential debates that the reason we have to deal with iran is Oil.
and this was the guy who was supposed to scream about terrorism.
it was 2/3 oil and 1/3 deals for big contractors like blackwater.
9/11 wasn't a cause for the war any more than erection is a cause for sex.
we wanted the war so we bombed ourselves into it. people who died on 9/11 were the first 3,000 that the government sacrificed for money. the next couple thousand who died in iraq were the second round.
