well i just want to know something
Iraq is the world's biggest oil producers
we rely on iraq for our oil
so if we go to war with iraq the the oil prices will boom so high
gasoline will raise prices unbelievable
so even if iraq has no way to defend themselves and are literally living on the groung they have a major advantage: OIL
no adays we use oil for almost anything so what if they shut down their oil from us wouldn't we suffer from that?

Reality check

1- We do not buy Iraqi oil. Our top four oil providers are Canada , Saudi Arabia, Mexico, and Venezuela in order of supply (Canada being our largest single supplier).

2- Iraq is n ot the world's most productive oil producer. Saudi Arabia is with 25% of all the world's oil reserves.

So... your point is... what?

also if we did buy it from them and if htey were the biggest supplier we would blow buy them pretty fast and take control of the oil fields. ALos the economy would suffer slightly if this did happen but our military machince would still function because of the emergency oil reserves.

Canadians should cut off our supply to the U.S. and make them dependant on Iraq. LOL
PS: F16, if you think our 'left' government sucks, go to the States and get sick.

I have read two of your posts so far and they have both been utter sh!te. Think before u post.

Iraq cut off its oil to the west in protest to the Palestine-Israel situation before. Oil prices rose, but nothing drastic.
