FROM THIS EPISODE

President Bush talks about Iraq-s weapons of mass destruction as justification for war, but skeptics maintain that the long-term objective is US control of Iraqi oil and the second largest oil reserves in the world. Some oil experts contend that it won-t be so easy because instability in the Persian Gulf and rebuilding Iraq would make the cost of an oil war far greater than it-s worth, and because Saddam Hussein just might blow up his own oil fields. We hear more about the motives for war and its possible consequences, and get a former insider-s view of Saddam Hussein himself, from a member of the British Labour Party, economist and national security experts, former Bush White House speech-writer David Frum and a former official from the Iraqi Oil Ministry.
