Saddam's WMD: oil
Nothing better than to wake up to this.
A senior U.S. Central Command official will provide a background briefing regarding Iraq's potential use of oil as a terror weapon.Sounds like an Onion article, doesn't it?
Reader BZ, who brought this beauty to my attention, summed it up perfectly:
What's next? Sand as WMD?(Clicking around I see Olliver Willis already blogged this. He must live in the East Coast...)
Update: Upon further thought, this strategy starts making more and more sense. If Bush and Co. can pull it off, why stop with Iraq? It would provide ample justification to go after administration thorn-in-the-sides Venezuela and Iran. And at that point could we really ignore Saudi Arabia's "arsenal"?Posted January 24, 2003 08:25 AM | Comments (34)
