ENTIRELY UNNECESSARY DESPAIR AND RAGE

Guess what: it was all about the oil, after all. (When we went in the only building we protected — not the museums or anything else — was the Oil Ministry.) I love the interviewee who notes that it would have been a lot cheaper — and destroyed far fewer lives (as in . . . none?) — just to buy the oil than to invade and occupy the country for 10 years.

☞ Love this. Have a great weekend.
