Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm still no closer to an answer. The idea, mentioned here to "enclose" Iraq's oil seems the most plausible to me. Plans to turn east and enclose Iran's oil afterwards seems, in light if the history, at least possible.

I don't know how they thought they'd get away with it, and frankly, I'm depressed at the situation as it stands today.
