Aside from the oil issue, Iraq meets a number of other U.S. considerations
as a candidate for war, without any exclusionary issues.
For example, since Vietnam, it has been U.S. policy not to fight any wars
that it would have a remote possibility of losing, or even a remote
possibility of resulting in massive U.S. casualties. With 50,000 U.S.
troops within artillery range of North Korea, this point on the axis is
clearly excluded. Developing nuclear weapons? By their own admission. A
target for U.S. military attack? Not under the mutual damage exclusionary
principle. We only attack countries that have no real possibility of
fighting back: Iraq, Grenada, Panama, Libya, etc. Again, under the
principles of war, if your enemy cannot fight back or reasonably defend
itself, there is no war, merely a massacre.
