Gates on Greenspan

Gates responds to Greenspan's comment about the Iraq war being about oil;

"I know the same allegation was made about the Gulf War in 1991, and I just don't believe it's true."

You really think we would've given a damn about Iraq invading Kuwait if there wasn't oil there? Where the hell were we when Turkey invaded Cyprus? What about when Tutsis invaded Rwanda from Uganda and slaughtered everyone? What about in Darfur? What the hell made Kuwait so damn special that they got the full force of our military to liberate them, but we completely ignored everyone else?

You're telling me it wasn't the oil?
