Oil was the main reason for military action against Iraq, a leading White House hawk has claimed, confirming the worst fears of those opposed to the US-led war.
The US deputy defence secretary, Paul Wolfowitz - who has already undermined Tony Blair's position over weapons of mass destruction (WMD) by describing them as a "bureaucratic" excuse for war - has now gone further by claiming the real motive was that Iraq is "swimming" in oil.
The latest comments were made by Mr Wolfowitz in an address to delegates at an Asian security summit in Singapore at the weekend, and reported today by German newspapers Der Tagesspiegel and Die Welt.
Asked why a nuclear power such as North Korea was being treated differently from Iraq, where hardly any weapons of mass destruction had been found, the deputy defence minister said: "Let's look at it simply. The most important difference between North Korea and Iraq is that economically, we just had no choice in Iraq. The country swims on a sea of oil."
Mr Wolfowitz went on to tell journalists at the conference that the US was set on a path of negotiation to help defuse tensions between North Korea and its neighbours - in contrast to the more belligerent attitude the Bush administration displayed in its dealings with Iraq.
His latest comments follow his widely reported statement from an interview in Vanity Fair last month, in which he said that "for reasons that have a lot to do with the US government bureaucracy, we settled on the one issue that everyone could agree on: weapons of mass destruction."
Prior to that, his boss, defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld, had already undermined the British government's position by saying Saddam Hussein may have destroyed his banned weapons before the war.
Mr Wolfowitz's frank assessment of the importance of oil could not come at a worse time for the US and UK governments, which are both facing fierce criticism at home and abroad over allegations that they exaggerated the threat posed by Saddam Hussein in order to justify the war.
Amid growing calls from all parties for a public inquiry, the foreign affairs select committee announced last night it would investigate claims that the UK government misled the country over its evidence of Iraq's WMD.
The move is a major setback for Tony Blair, who had hoped to contain any inquiry within the intelligence and security committee, which meets in secret and reports to the prime minister.
In the US, the failure to find solid proof of chemical, biological and nuclear arms in Iraq has raised similar concerns over Mr Bush's justification for the war and prompted calls for congressional investigations.
Mr Wolfowitz is viewed as one of the most hawkish members of the Bush administration. The 57-year old expert in international relations was a strong advocate of military action against Afghanistan and Iraq.
Following the September 11 terror attacks on the World Trade Centre and Pentagon, Mr Wolfowitz pledged that the US would pursue terrorists and "end" states' harbouring or sponsoring of militants.
Prior to his appointment to the Bush cabinet in February 2001, Mr Wolfowitz was dean and professor of international relations at the Paul H Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), of the Johns Hopkins University.

It sounds like an interview with Home Beautiful magazine...."he said facing a wide screen TV"
What depth! What integrity! What a load of......
On the other hand, InsideB, it shows again what a shallow and stupid person he is. Powell did all the work, and he plays the part of hostess! I have been saying from the start that he makes the coffee and sets out the biscuits!! roflmao!! Helping people to relax!!! My aching sides!
The man proves every day that he is nothing less than a puppet...is it a glove puppet? If so, *I* wouldn't be putting MY hand up there!!

You realy should try the member area to see how they manipulate people.
Propaganda in the Third Reich they had "Voelkischer Beobachter" a paper and "Die Deutsche Wochenschau"/ Cinema. The Nazis had to pay for propaganda.
Shrubya is even better. Murdoch et al. make the Propaganda and they pay for his campagne.
Kaetzchen - imagine, we have our examination to pass tomorrow. The commission is headed by D. Rumsfeld, Co Chairman P. Wolfowitz.
Members of Comission R. Barnett, A. Bernstein, S. Cambone, E. Cohen, Devon Gaffney Cross, T. Donnelly, D. Epstein, D. Fautua, D. Goure, D. Kagan, F. Kagan, R. Kagan, R. Killebrew, W. Kristol, M. Lagon, J. Lasswell, I. Lewis Libby, R. Martinage, P. Meilinger, M. Owens, S. Rosen, G. Schmitt, A. Shulsky, M. Vickers, B. Watts, D. Zakheim.
Nothing to worry about. They are all our friends and our task was made as easy as possible.
TELL US SOMETHING NICE ABOUT OUR PRESIDENT; GEORGE W. BUSH.
Nosy I am. Bonne chance K?etzchen.

<think, think think>
I've got it!~
Even though he signed up for the Naval Reserve, he really, really didn't want to learn how to kill people, so he never turned up for training - even though it was in a time of "conflict/police action"!
yay!~ I expect a High Distinction on this one!
By the way, Dony exactly how tall are you? I would say about 5'2" but it's hard to tell on TV when you're standing behind that podium!
