Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

Now, of course, it's time to pull out. The mess cannot be fixed by staying there.

But back then, that's how I saw it...

Oh well...

Stay .. Leave .. it matters little. The objective has been achieved, "Mission Accomplished" if you like, back when Cretinhead said it was.

The aftermath on the ground is of little consequence to those who set it up. Everybody else will think twice before trying to trade Petrodollars in anything but $US.

Davo, do you really think that that's what the invasion was all about? (The US trying to control Iraq's currency dealings?) In that case, I think they'll have to invade China soon... Goodbye, America...

Nah, not quite that simple, 'twas a modicum of sarcasm.

I still believe that it was the reason for the urgency though.

Its a long story, and would have to find all the links to the info again to explain it fully and in detail. Saddam Hussein was considering selling his oil in Euros, not $US and had to be stopped, by fair means of foul, as he would set up a precedent for OPEC. Iran also was/is(?) setting up a bourse to sell in Euros, which is what is giving the Yanks the irrits, not his nuclear program, which is a smokescreen.

Am having trouble remembering the details as I was looking into the detail more than twelve months ago, but methinks that if oil is not traded in US Dollars their economy goes into meltdown. The whole gubbage about WMD, terrorism and "inflicting Democracy" was sheer bullshit smokescreen.

If "democracy" was one of the objectives, how come there was no "plan" for the aftermath?? All that they wanted to do was knock off Saddam, put the "frighteners"on the rest of OPEC, install a puppet Regime(Compliant Dictatorship) .. and piss of. Unfortunately it all began to come unstuck because Paul Bremer was an incompetent twit. (It wasn't that simple either, but more or less).

What you're saying is interesting and might well be spot on. I don't know enough about that to comment, though.

For me it was the fact that he was an "oil man" and Peak Oil spooked him into thinking that military action was how he could "secure" his America's oil interests.

Maybe it was a bit of both?
