And the hits just keep on coming….

Via Drudge: Greenspans says Iraq War for Oil

I’d started wondering more and more about motivations for this war as I read a little into the business side of what’s going on. Apparently, right before the invasion, Saddam had been trying to trade oil in Euros. For as long as we’ve been trading oil, oil has been bought and sold in US Dollars, giving a boost to our floundering, monopoly money. If someone starts trading oil in Euros, which are worth more than out dollar, that would be a huge hit to our economy.

And then we invaded and subsequently occupied Iraq.

And just recently, Iran has been trying to trade oil in currency other than the dollar.

Now the war drums are beating again.

  2. It wasn’t right before the invasion that the oil for euros problem cropped up. It was in 2000. The evidence indicates the plan to sack Iraq was on the agenda from day one. Also check the PNAC website regarding a “Pearl harbor type event”.

    ratm is right, its time to WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. mod down for excessive use of exclamation points

  4. Not a thing wrong with going to war over oil or to save our economy.

  5. really Roland? so by that same logic, is it ok to murder someone that is going to the get promotion you want at work?

    and how exactly does the christian just war theory justify war for economic resources?

  6. I, too, would like a reasoned argument for a Christian supporting an offensive war to support our country’s economic interest.
