Energy security is a major reason for Iraq war

‘The Defence Minister today listed the security of the world’s oil supply as one of the major reasons for Australia’s continuing military presence in Iraq as John Howard spelled out plans to keep troops in the country.

The Prime Minister said Islamic extremists remained a threat to Australia and it would be against “our national character” to let terrorists prevail.

He has again ruled out any timetable for withdrawing soldiers from the country plagued by sectarian conflict and regular deadly attacks against coalition forces.’

I need an “obvious” tag, really.
