What else was the war for if not oil?

I WAS intrigued to be told by Patrick Cockburn (Comment, January 24) that some Iraqis are now "cynically convinced that the real aim" of the invasion "was Iraqi oil and permanent military bases".

I'm just surprised to learn anyone thought anything other than that from the beginning.
