  •  <b>WHAT WERE OPTIONS?</b> (none)
    Could the ultimate ends of the Iraq invasion (sustained US financial global health, competitive advantages over other countries, etc) have been achieved by other means, given the intent to value petrol on the Euro?

    Much of the chatter here leads one to think that, although the invasion was a bad thing (and I do agree it was), that the consequences of NOT invading Iraq were irrelevant.  What would a good American do to sustain US pre-eminence (ohh, so close to hegemony) in the world (financial, educational, military, etc) given the threat of basing petrol on the Euro?

    What were (are?) the "healthy" options?
