War...what is it good for?

Reader comment on item: Profs Who Hate America

Submitted by Nadia Chouman (Australia), Apr 12, 2003 at 10:02

have a mind opening question...Why doesn't America try to get rid of Yasser Arafat , or Sharon or at least try and bring peace in the Gaza strip? Or why doesn't America invade Zimbabwe and stop Robert Mugabe's murder spree?

I'll tell you all why.

There is NO OIL in Palestine/Israel and NO OIL in Zimbabwe.. so to all those people who think this war in Iraq isn't about the oil, you should think again.
