Remember, the invasion of Iraq was NOT about oil

You will remember Tony Blair telling us that the war in Iraq was in no way linked to the fact that Iraq is one of the world's major sources of oil.

Everyone asked the question why it was that a poor impoverished country like Zimbabwe with a despot in charge was being left alone by international forces whilst Iraq faced the wrath of the US and the UK. People wondered back in 2002 and 2003 whether if Zimbabwe had oil, would Mugabe be allowed to get off scot free, but no, Tony Blair said it was definitely NOT about oil.

So we should, I imagine, all be shocked to hear that Tony Blair is now being paid by a foreign oil company with interests in Iraqi oil field. No ? Neither am I.
