    This is why we went to war with Saddam Hussein in 2003.  Iraq invaded, conquered, raped, sacked and pillaged the nation of Kuwait and was massing at the border of Saudi Arabia to conquer it.  If they succeeded they would have controlled 45% of the world's oil supply because they would control the Strait of Hormuz.  Saudi Arabia asked for help and we went in and creamed the Iraqi war machine all the way back to Iraq.  Hussein sued for peace and was given conditions which he broke and that is why we re-invaded Iraq.
