The Liberty Transcript Service

The comedy team of John Bird and John Fortune (in the guise of George Parr) describes the current War on Terror as a war for oil and why America is waging that battle quite well.

John Bird: George Parr, you are a Councilor of the British Embassy in Washington.

John Fortune: Yes, I am.

Bird: And you've been working very closely with the Americans on Iraq.

Fortune: Yes — but it's not my fault!

Sorry? What isn't your fault?


Well, I didn't suggest that anything was.

I'm sorry. I've been under a lot of strain.

I'm sorry to hear that. Just very recently, the former head of the American central bank, the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, just published his memoirs in which he said, and I quote, "I'm saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: that the Iraq war is largely about oil."

Well, I think I should point out, although it gives me no pleasure to do so, that Alan Greenspan is 81 years old.

Are you saying that it's not about oil?

Absolutely. Absolutely! Tony Blair himself said in the House of Commons, that the oil revenues which some people falsely claim we want to seize, should be put in a trust account for the Iraqi people.

This was in March of 2003.
