15 years ago the former Soviet Union was in the beginnings of the process of becoming the Russian Republic. The analysis of inteligence by those who
in this country decide, was that any action in Iraq would have a negative effect on that process. Fact of the matter is there is a high probability
that US incursions into Iraq. Could have made relations between Russia and US so bad WWIII would have occured.
As a reuslt it was decided that the US could not involve them in supporting the end of the Saddam regime. Dom I can tell you that I know this is
correct and I am certain that had it not been for this problem Saddam Hussein would not be in power today (in respect to this specific issue I cannot
go beyond what has been said here).
You are concerned about greed in respect to Iraqi oil fields; greed in respect to any institution is an issue. There is good and bad everywhere the
question becomes, who is a particular institution is in charge and what keeps them in power?
Keep this in mind today the US controls most of the oil fields in Iraq and there literally is nothing Saddam Hussein can do to change that. Are the
aspects of this countries government which are ("Greedy") interested in Iraqi oil? No none exit. And you know why, because there is something else
Dom the world is not based on fantasies and I know this, it is based upon a balance. Which is the reuslt of the world as in the world as it is today.
Many people have died because of this balance some have been good people but other have in fact been bad people.
Russia can produce, as much oil as can Saudi Arabia this is a fact. If anything, the problems of the people of Iraq could have been ignored, the US
could have easily resolved the issue of oil by assisting the Russian effort against the Chechen (and Russia would have been appreciative). Europe and
Japan would have with time benefited from a pipeline from the Russian republic (Keep in mind the Koreans are insisting upon connecting to this
pipeline, which has been planed).
As a reuslt of such an effort, issues which exist between Venezuela, would cease to exist. Cuba would literally become an ally and as far as a need
for Iraqi oil, theyíre literally would be none.
The United States wants peace but not any cost. As a reuslt they are not prepared to go the easy route, what they are prepared to do is resolve the
problems in Iraq. The people of Iraq have a window of opportunity (Iran knows everything). That window will remain open for quite some time.
What has happened to the Iraqi people is as important as what happened to the Israelis during WWII. We place a value beyond recources is respect to
the human condition. And with respect to the immediate future, it is the intent of those who rule the US. To develop the means to make the human
condition, a resource which is above any other.
Dom no one has a right to use Chemical weapons, for that matter biological or nuclear as well. And the only reason the US sought UN approval was to
guarantee that no other military force would involve themselves (and none will). The "greedy" of the United States are not interested in oil
(personally I guarantee that). Listen carefully to what has been presented to date with respect to the President of the United States.
Israel was created so that Jews could have a homeland and Iraq will be no different
PS: If you think that 8 million Iraqis are not important count the number of Jews in Isreal.
