It turns out the Iraq war WAS about oil. Only it wasn’t the Americans that after the oil, it was the French. Why am I not surprised?
From the New York Post I read, “French oil companies stood to make a $100 billion profit from exclusive contracts they had with Saddam, had he remained in power.”
No wonder the French fought us tooth and nail in the build-up to war in Iraq.Posted by Ted at March 16, 2004 9:18 PM
