Alan Greenspan: the Iraq war is largely about oil

The US and Britain have always maintained that the war to oust Saddam Hussein was about weapons of mass destruction – not oil.

US President George Bush said Saddam was a threat to world security because he could sell the weapons on to terrorists.

But Mr Greenspan, a Republican who was boss of the US Federal Reserve for 18 years, said that was not the whole truth, according to a copy of the book seen by Associated Press.

“I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil,” he is reported to have written.

  1. Left gatekeepers propagated the myth the war was about oil. The truth is zionists like Greenspan have dragged the West into The Middle East Conflict on Israel’s side, on the back of a series of false flag terror attacks in the West blamed on ‘Muslim Terror’. Thats the truth. Thats why you don’t hear it.

  2. dotdead,

    While Zionist have contributed to many problems in the Mideast and they have highly disproportionate representation in the U.S. government, to pretend that Christians and atheists in our government are helpless creatures who are blindly following what Israel wants, is not a productive way of thinking. The U.S. has made military interventions, with devastating consequences, in Africa, South America, and Asia that have nothing to do with Israel.

    While the mainstream media underreports the negative aspects of Israel, I’d like to see this corrected. But I would like to see the negative aspects of U.S. foreign policy honestly discussed in the mainstream, media, as well.
