|The 2003 American war against Iraq was primarily an economic war, because the government of Saddam Hussein was excluding U.S. and U.K. companies from Iraqi oil-resource development. This was in retaliation for these two countries supporting unconditionally Israel's decades-long oppression of the Palestinians. As a consequence, the Bush-Cheney administration and its vassal Tony Blair in England, felt that they had to intervene militarily in order to prevent French, German, Russian, and Chinese oil companies to develop Iraq's oil, while U.S. and U.K. oil company interests were excluded. Basic economic interests were thus at play and international law was powerless to stop the military onslaught.|
