DON'T WORRY, NO AMERICAN IS GOING TO FIGHT FOR AMERICANS | 2003-02-08
America will soon occupy Iraq. Iraq has the second largest oil reserves on earth behind Saudi Arabia.
What will America do with Iraqi oil?
Opponents of the Iraqi War keep saying that we might use that war to benefit Americans. They say America wants to go in there to break OPEC's cartel and reduce oil prices.
Nothing is farther from the mind of George Bush and his advisors than using American troops to benefit Americans.
Nobody puts it the way I have just put it, of course. Bush lists his goals for war and throws in some words about how it's all for the good Americans. War opponents never say that the war might to used to break OPEC. They say the war will be used "for oil".
