The US did not go to war for oil when it had some reason for doing so
(in 1973) and when the oil embargo was causing a huge problem. Why? As
has been said, that simply isn't how the US does things.

If we are to belive this article, the US did at least consider going to war
over oil.


Even when the Soviet Union was still around. It was a no-brainer in
2003, by comparison.
