48. and some are making this connection--but not loud enough
Most people don't know that there is any evidence for this at least here in the US, while the oil motive has been clearly documented on the BBC equivalent of 60 Minutes. If you are a PR flak or congressional staffer, you've earned your pay trying to pretend this is so obvious it doesn't need to be covered.

But you know this is not part of the PUBLIC debate and it should be or we won't be able to stop future wars like this.
