Test this tinfoil theory out!
Edited on Mon Sep-22-03 05:03 PM by Must_B_Free
Theme: Saddam was a threat to the Saudi/Texas oil empire.

I think a valid explanation is that this what the whole thing was about the Saudi-Texas empire managing the competition.

We're talking about Iraq, with the 2nd largest Oil reserves in the world. If Saddam got production up, he was threatening the the dominant player in that arena. It seems that he had matured from his fantasy of a military leader and realized the game was economic, not military.

The country appeared to be West embracing. He had a secular government because that was the only way to bring together infighting factions overwhich he ruled - from a neutral (read secular) ground. He did not seem to have an interest in WMDs but rather an inerest in making his country a new economic force. I thin this is why they bound him with sanctions this whole time, to prevent his entry into the markets.

Yes he was a threat, but not as a madman terrorist - as a legitimate holder of massive fossil resources. And as a market maker, but choosing the currency he would use. Notice all the Euro countries were against the invasion. They were in line for deals that would have put Iraq's oil in the Euro, further boosting it over the deflating US Dollar.

This explains why the Saudis and Texas were in bed together with the 911 plot. It was all just mutual backscratching. Saudis were strengthening their empire and the Bushes were also inceasing their power along with Shrubbies ratings.

1. You may have a seed of truth there. Remember the Kuwaiti
war? Kuwait was slant drilling into Iraq, and were threatening to cut off access to the sea. Maybe that was why they attacked. I don't know for sure.

In the mideast is is very important to keep a strong defense force because so much is at stake. Was his army defensive or aggressive in nature?

2. Alert! No Tinfoil hats necessary!
I repeat "tinfoil hats not needed." This is not a theory. Go back and listen to some of Bush's speeches. He specifically said, he would not allow a man and country with such wealth, to develop and dominate the region.
