        True. What it all comes down to is both military and economic might. Iraq
may have oil, but our country is head and shoulders over theirs, per
capita. Does this mean it's okay to attack, based on this relevation? Of
course not. But, this is still the measuring stick (and has been since
before Christ) in determining overall "strengths" or "weaknesses". This is
simple human nature - the "big boys" call all the shots......or in another
parlance, the guy throwing the coins gets to call the tune.
