In conjunction with my video...
I'd say that this was the major reason for Iraq invasion. I think that prices are lower than what they should be now due to the "help" we're getting from Iraq. The whole thing was to keep the REAL prices from shooting through the roof! Imagine if we weren't getting the oil that we do from Iraq alone... We might be really paying upwards of $5 a gallon for awhile now.
Just my theory... Could be true/partly true/ or total BS who knows?
