On 3 April 2003, Israeli journalist, Ari Shavit, said this in an edition of the Israeli daily, Ha’aretz:

On 28 May 2003, Paul Wolfowitz, one of the two neoconservatives Jews (Richard Perle was the other) who did more than anyone else to bring about the second war in Iraq, finally let the cat out of the bag when he said this in an interview with Vanity Fair:
"For reasons that have a lot to do with the US government bureaucracy, we settled on the one issue everyone could agree on, which was weapons of mass destruction."And then, at the IISS Asian Security Summit in Singapore three days later, Wolfowitz casually admitted to the self-interest that governed America's reasons for invading Iraq, when he said:
"Let's look at it simply. The most important difference between North Korea and Iraq is that economically, we just had no choice in Iraq. The country swims on a sea of oil".Of course, Wolfowitz wasn't ever going to admit that territorial expansion, downright spite and Israel's security, had anything to do with his wanting Iraq smashed to bits but, as confessions go, this one's a beaut.
