Palin: Iraq is a war for oil.
Advertisements [?]
Guess she was so insignificant, she didn't even get the neocon "security, freedom, and democracy" memo.

Palin: Iraq is a war for oil.

In a recent BusinessWeek interview, Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) admitted that she believes the Iraq war was fought because of oil:

We are a nation at war and in many the reasons for war are fights over energy sources, which is nonsensical when you consider that domestically we have the supplies ready to go.

In May, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) also said that he plans to eliminate our dependence on oil from the Middle East that will prevent us from having ever to send our young men and women into conflict again in the Middle East. He later backtracked from his comments, denying that he meant to imply that the Iraq war was fought over oil.
