US Geopolitical Decision Influence

globe(Community Matters) I know this is ridiculous and not worthy of posting. As I was reading the story about China Winning from the war on Iraq, the following statement stood out:

Before the invasion, Iraq’s oil industry was sputtering, largely walled off from world markets by international sanctions against the government of Saddam Hussein, so his overthrow always carried the promise of renewed access to the country’s immense reserves.

reminded me of yesterday’s story about the neocons and how they followed the money, maybe overlooking threats in the Caspian Sea in order to access oil reserves on behalf of Big Oil.

I know, I know, conspiracy, alarmist and completely made up, just amplified by the financial ties from Halliburton to the vice president  – nevertheless,  a thought provoking coincidence of words.
