I have no idea where to put this question. It doesn’t have one exact answer and I am not really interested in debating so I picked here. Mods, please punish me with spankings if I am wrong.
I have heard people say that the possible war wiith Iraq is mainly about oil. I am having a hard time understanding this and I am hoping the dopers will help me.
How does the US stand to benefit oil-wise from war with Iraq?
I always thought that OPEC set the oil prices. Am I wrong? Will the price of oil go down after a war with Iraq? Do people think the US is going to take over the oil fields in Iraq?
