1) The USA gets MOST of its oil from North American reserves

2) The UK and Canada, who support missions in Iraq and Afghanistan respectively, EXPORT oil.

It IS about oil.....for Iran. They want access to the Mediterranean so they can harass oil shipments moving from the Dardenelles and the Suez Canal.
