What most people don’t know is that it was often mentioned post-first Gulf War, that this was one of possible real reasons for the invasion of Iraq. Saddam Hussein had indeed threatened to trade oil in a currency other than Dollars. This would have definitely been an economic Pearl Harbor attack on the Dollar.
In our book, Secret Weapon (http://secretweapon.org), we explained the use of “the oil weapon.” Lest anyone feel that this is mere talk by extremists, we point out how even “moderate” Arab states such as Saudi Arabia have threatened to use this weapon over the years. Now, however, there are reports that even a government we helped install in a nation we liberated are calling for the oil weapon to be used against America. Here are excerpts from a recent Fox News report:
Liberated Iraq calls on Arab states to use oil as ‘weapon’ against U.S.
Published November 16, 2012 FoxNews.com
A top Iraqi diplomat urged Arab states to “use the weapon of oil” against the United States because of its alliance with Israel, raising more questions about the Middle Eastern nation’s allegiance to the country that freed it from a ruthless dictatorship.
As we have said all along, we are in the midst of a Global Economic War. We must accept this reality and respond to it. Oil is just one Secret Weapon being used against us.
