Beating Around the Bush By the Bourse

By Ingmar Lee

Only the uninformed believed Bush when he said it was WMD’s that made him attack, invade, occupy and massacre Iraq. Most of us thought it was to steal Iraq’s oil, but we were only partly right. What totally terrorized the tyrranical Texan tycoon was when Saddam played the oil bourse card in November, 2000. When Saddam started selling Iraqi oil in euro’s, he jeopardized the U.S. dollar’s hegemony as the world’s supreme foreign exchange transaction currency. – The oil grab is a sideshow. The main feature is the oil bourse.
