why you think? sure for the oil under the Iraq soil. everybody knows that the sources for energy is shrinking day by day and the search for new sources has already been set off. but for now, every country is in a dire need of oil. so what a contry can do_? if it has enough power, "get it". existence of WMD, bringing democracy & freedom, or peace-keeping or other nonsense excuses are just to cover the main aim up.
