It could be exported to Europe and the rest of the western world through the Mediterranean , through the pipe lines which gose through
This is the strategic importance of
Once again .............please let it be known to you and to all the American people, the Iraqi people are not religious Fanatics, and they are not against the west, other wise you would not find millions of them leaving their dear country and escaping this sectarian and violent hell".
