Campbell  doesn't know whether to believe the Gulf War conspiracy theory or not, but it goes something like this:
After the Cold War was over, low oil prices made it difficult for the Saudis -- and oilman President George Bush's friends -- to make ends meet because OPEC members were cheating on quotas.
The obvious solution to OPEC cheating was to sequester an entire country: Iraq. In order for our scheme to work, Saddam would have to remain in power and the UN would have to embargo his oil. That's exactly what we did.
We only need to keep Saddam in power for a few years -- till the rest of the world's oil production "peaks".
