A story by George Wright in _The Guardian_ (June 4, 2003).  

Some candid quotes from Paul Wolfowitz, the US deputy minister
of defense.  He said that the claim that Iraq had "weapons of mass
destruction" was "for reasons that had a lot to do with US 
government bureaucracy."   

The real reason for the war was, in contrast to N. Korea, that:
 "...economically, we just had no choice 
in Iraq. The country swims on a sea of oil."
