Default Re: I don't have to add any subjective conjecture

I haven't read the book (although it looks interesting), but I think the real reasons for the war go something like this:

1. America needs to control oil.
2. There's a lot of oil in the Middle East.
3. There are a lot of hostile nations that will control Middle Eastern oil if the US doesn't.
4. There's no oil in Afghanistan.
5. There's a lot of oil in Iraq.
6. Establish a sympathetic government in Iraq and continue support for Israel to ensure US dominance in the Middle East.
