The Iraq war really was about oil

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.
