If the war in Iraq were about oil why is the EPA loosening standards on gasoline because shortages are feared? If America wanted to simply take all of the oil in Iraq we could, but we are not a nation of takers – we are a nation of givers and that will show itself again as Americans dig into their pockets to help strangers in the Gulf Coast recover from a terrible storm.
Does anyone still believe that Iraq was about oil? I hope not, but then, that might be a little optimistic.
