"Iraq Floats On A Sea Of Oil"--Paul Wolfowitz, just prior to the Iraq War
Um, not exactly.
Apparently our sanctions decimated(literally) Iraq's ability to produce oil, and now it has come back to bite us on the ass.
So if the administration already knew Iraq could not "finance its own reconstruction"(Wolfowitz again, speaking to Congress), then...
Why the hell did we go to war? It's kind of weird to see that it wasn't even for the oil. Could this all have just been Bush's attempt to better his dad?
This is looking more and more like what Gen Anthony Zinni has called a "brainfart."
