This is something I've been thinking about for a while, so I'd be interested in your thoughts, to see if my thinking is highly flawed.
Do you think that it's possible that in say, the next 50 years that Iraq could be the next world power.
Take for example Japan. After Hiroshima and Nagasaki was bombed, the US put a lot of money back into the rebuilding of Japan. It's grown very
successfully especially in regard to technology etc. It miles ahead of the rest of the countries on Earth.
Now, considering the war in Iraq, and the fact that Iraq is one of the major oil producing countries out there, do you think it's possible, that if
the US puts a load of money into rebuilding Iraq that in a few decades it could become the next world power, especially with controlling the major
source of the the Earth's fuel?
