If you say in the description on the main page that "Sharing a land border with Russia hasn't been so great lately", then you could also say that "Having oil reserves hasn't been so great lately". I thought it's a quiz page, not a political one...
+2
Level 83
Sep 7, 2015
Countries have been getting invaded for their oil for a very long time, not just lately, and by many different nations, including Russia. Then again I guess it's been bad news to share a land border with Russia for a very long time, as well. Longer than it's been bad news to have oil, actually.
+1
Level 70
May 8, 2022
We all know the old trope about the Iraq war being all about oil. But can you name another oil-rich country that the US has invaded? Because if that were the sole motivation, why didn’t they invade and occupy Kuwait, with its oil reserves of 100bn barrel reserves (next to Iraq’s 143 billion) and the relative ease of invading a tiny country? Or Canada, with its 171 billion? Better still, Venezuela! The largest known oil reserves in world, within the Monroe Doctrine sphere of influence and with a similarly moustachioed loon in charge. Could it be that, to borrow a tried and tested phrase: “it’s a little more complicated than that?”
