We have been at war in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2003. Many lives have been lost on both sides. Now as I see it the war with Iraq was illegal as no weapons of mass destruction have ever been found and it is highly doubtful if there ever were any. Afghanistan, we are there cos good old George W blew a bugle. At the end of the day I believe that these conflicts are oil induced. With this in mind. 1. If the massive amounts of money spent on these conflicts had been invested in an renewable alternative energy sources, could this have led to a non dependence on Arab Oil? 2. Would relations between Christian and Muslim races be as volatile? Please discuss and add.
