It’s Not About Oil, Stupid, but Flattening Arab and Muslim Countries

Greenspan’s use of the adverb “largely” is deceptive. The invasion and occupation of Iraq, as Bush crime family intimate Philip Zelikow admitted, was about the “unstated threat” to Israel, that is to say Israel’s hegemony in the neighborhood.

Alan Greenspan claims Iraq war was really for oil – Times Online

AMERICA’s elder statesman of finance, Alan Greenspan, has shaken the White House by declaring that the prime motive for the war in Iraq was oil.

In his long-awaited memoir, to be published tomorrow, Greenspan, a Republican whose 18-year tenure as head of the US Federal Reserve was widely admired, will also deliver a stinging critique of President George W Bush’s economic policies.

However, it is his view on the motive for the 2003 Iraq invasion that is likely to provoke the most controversy. “I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil,” he says.

Ambush in Iraq Last November Left Four Americans Missing And a String of Questions About the Firm They Worked For

Washington Post Foreign Service
Sunday, July 29, 2007; Page A01

BAGHDAD — The convoy was ambushed in broad daylight last Nov. 16, dozens of armed men swarming over 37 tractor-trailers stretching for more than a mile on southern Iraq’s main highway. The attackers seized four Americans and an Austrian employed by Crescent Security Group, a small private security firm. Then they fled.
