Regardless of what one thinks about the whole -- conspiratorial? incisive? -- theory about Iraq's (threat to) switch to euro invoicing/payment of its oil exports, somehow I can't help but think this passage gets one small detail wrong:

"in the first Gulf War the United States had attacked Iraq 
partly because Iraq had stopped using dollars as its reserve currency 
and turned to the euro"

Kind of like that clock in Julius Caesar, no?
