It's not polite to say so, but if Americans understood just how many trillions their military was really spending on protecting oil, they wouldn't stand for it.

The debate often hovers at a sandbox level of did-so/did-not. Donald Rumsfeld, the former defence secretary, insisted the invasion of Iraq had "nothing to do with oil." But even Alan Greenspan, the former Federal Reserve chairman, rejected that line by noting that "It is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows."
