Rabat- Who says history does not repeat itself, at times it does even do it over and over. The last NATO meeting decided to put up yet again another coalition for the third war on Iraq in the last quarter of century. What’s wrong with Iraq, what’s wrong with the West or rather what’s wrong with both. For Iraq, violence has become its second nature, as for the West, it has an obssession with securing oil routes, since it is still very much dependent on this sort of energy for its economy.
