War for oil

Since we are returning troops to Iraq under Obama, perhaps we should revisit the motives for war in Iraq.  For some of us, we couldn't be more oblivious to reality.

Possibly this one is a little clouded in judgement, but she and her retweeters seem to think we are at war because of burning coal and oil.  That couldn't be farther from the truth.

First, the reason why we are at war from someone on the Left :

So Saddam was much more than just a "bad guy," he needed to be taken out to stop his role in promoting terrorism against the US.  And he did end up having those chemical weapons he wasn't supposed to have. These are the facts.

But facts - and liberals, don't often meet.  Their entire claim of "war for oil" is absurd, when the US, if it really wanted oil desperately, could have just taken it from Mexico.
