not this one). As I recall the Spice Girl incarnation, you said that the
dollar-euro relationship was the reason for going to war in Iraq, that is,
it was because Sad-ham
was demanding payment for his oil in euros. I snarfed my geebooozles off
(thanks for adding 2 new words to my vocabulary). And I still do. Although
the huge US debt and the at least equally serious balance of payments
deficit certainly make the dollar shaky, I still fail to see what that has
to do with the war. Was it supposed to be a warning to other oil producers
not to follow Sad-ham's lead? Or what? Another item which also has nothing
to do with the war: A weaker dollar against the euro actually helps to
reduce the trade deficit by making US exports cheaper. But there are limits
of course and reducing taxes doesn't help.
Yur dear Frank
