Baghdad/Israel pipeline discussed
Why does this make me nervous?
Plans to build a pipeline to siphon oil from newly conquered Iraq to Israel are being discussed between Washington, Tel Aviv and potential future government figures in Baghdad.It would also rile anti-Israel fervor in Iraq, be a ripe and constant target for sabotage, further encourage theories that the US invasion was a "Zionist plot", and fuel guerilla resistance to the US occupation.
To be sure, this is not a bad idea, per se. It's just not the kind of thing you roll out while tensions are still running high.Posted April 21, 2003 01:44 AM | Comments (93)
