Green Left Weekly provides news, information, opinion and debate from an
environmental and left perspective.

Featured this week: No war on Iraq! No blood for oil!

The looming US-led war on Iraq has nothing to do with eliminating
weapons of mass destruction, fighting terrorism or ending human rights
abuses by Iraq's President Saddam Hussein. These are cover for
Washington to achieve its long-term goal of the military and political
domination of the Middle East and central Asia. US imperialism's aim is
to gain untrammeled control the world's key sources of oil and gas.
