Jeffery Sachs gives his reasons for the U.S. invasion of Iraq (in a Financial Times opinion piece, summarized here) -- as a diversionary tactic to draw attention away from Saudi Arabia. His four reasons, according to the summary, are:


'First, Riyadh's inferred complicity in 11 September offered "dramatic confirmation" that Saudi Arabian oil was an insecure source, and even demonstrated that Riyadh may pose a threat to U.S. security interests. Iraqi oil was the only "quantitatively significant alternative" to Saudi supplies.'

'Second, a new base had to be found for U.S. troops in the region to replace U.S. bases in Saudi Arabia.'

'Third, following the events of 11 September, the White House sought to make clear that aiding terrorists or otherwise threatening U.S. security interests could result in "regime change" in Saudi Arabia as it did Iraq.'

'Finally, the U.S. administration sought to obscure the Saudi connection for fear its own Saudi associates would be implicated.'
