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.
