At long last... the truth about Iraq

From todays Guardian, Alan Greenspan the former head of the US federal reserve admits that the war in the Iraq may have been over oil after all....

In the book Mr Greenspan writes: "Whatever their publicised angst over Saddam Hussain's 'weapons of mass destruction', American and British authorities were also concerned about violence in the area that harbours a resource indispensable for the functioning of the world economy. I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil."

OK, so it taken nearly 4 years to be honest and come out and say what the rest of us have known for ages, but I like this new spirit of honesty. Next, we might even George admitting that he didn't really win his first election and that he'd like to say sorry to AL
