According to a new book I just read titled Armed Madhouse by BBC reporter Greg Palast, the US (meaning Bush & Co.) doesn't want Iraq's oil, but instead want to ensure that no one else can pump it so that the price of oil will remain high, ensuring high profits for oil companies.

Thoughts?

It's not about the specific oil, it's always about money, which is connected to oil. American control over as much oil as possible.

Whether or not we want the Oil itself, we do want the greater influence over the entire region.

I don't know, I'd have to see his research. I like Palast, and he always has documentation to back up his articles, but I'd have to read the whole thing myself.

I'd like the oil in Iraq if it means gas goes down. :D

Which is the only reason they wouldn't want it.
