Subject: RE: BS: WMDs WERE found in Iraq!
The "it was about oil" argument doesn't really stand up to the evidence.

In Op Iraqi Freedom, the push to protect oil wells was so that Iraq could pay for its restructuring and economic rebirth after Hussein was removed. If one looks at the numbers regarding US imports of oil, Iraq just ain't at the top of the list. In fact, it's down the list a ways.

However, people are gonna believe what the want. One of the beauties of democracy.
