All wars are for economic reasons. That is always the root of any conflict.
That sounds like it's straight out of the Karl Marx Reader. No, I grant that MOST wars are economic, shoot, unless forced into it, the Romans didn't fight a war they weren't gonna make a profit at, I respect that. However, the root of our participation in this campaign is not the 105 Billion dollar toll, it's gonna cost, but rather the loss of 6000 lives. MORAL OUTRAGE should never be dismissed as a cause of war. Heck, even a pretty face can do it for ya (Helen of Troy).
