  •  With or Without Israel;Iraq Was Still Big Oil's fo (none)
    Being a big supporter of the right for a free and democratic Israel; I do not believe had Israel objected we wouldnt have invaded Iraq. But you are right in that it was no big deal for Israel to support the invasion and supply the necessary intelligence disinformation,WMD etc., to add cover to Big Oil's story.

    After all, with all the financial support Israel has gotten from the US; it wasnt much to ask for them to go along with the neocons.

    But Israel knew what Sadaam was having for breakfast on a daily basis and certainly would have known if there was any WMD or imminent threat of it.

    This is Big Oil which went through the 80's and 90's with relatively low profits and was getting payback. Throughout the history of oil; it is the multinationals who control governments, not visa versa
