Greenspan Has It All Wrong

Surely, by now, you've heard "Greenspan's shocker," that the Iraq war is largely about oil.

"Largely," about oil?

The "old geezer," as Jules Crittenden puts it, "needs to have a chat with his researchers."

It's not that the world's single most important strategic resource isn't worth fighting for, which it is, but then, as importantly, there's those other not-so-little issues such as "peace, truth, justice, the American way," and "slightly less abstract threats to U.S. national interests and security" such as "preventing a new training ground for future terrorist attacks against America, the evidence of Saddam's track record and ongoing interest in WMD, and Saddam's demonstrated desire to dominate the entire region!"

And, pray tell, what's so bad about keeping terrorists and the tyrants who support them from controlling the world's oil supply?
