It's always about oil...

Reader comment on item: Saddam's Rap Sheet

Submitted by Mike Sullivan (United States), Aug 21, 2002 at 13:27

Let us not forget that the true reason to invade is to install a US-friendly goverment that will counterbalance the monoply position of Saudi Arabia.

Once SH is overthrown, the oil embargo will be lifted, and the US will have another powerful ally within the oil cartel.

With Iraq in our corner, we can apply more pressure on Saudi Arabia "to Get Tough" on Saudi Al Queda terrorists without the threat of a Saudi lead oil embargo or oil price increase.

Remember, it always about oil.
