According to The Washington Post on August 30, 1999, U.S. Brigadier General William Looney said, regarding the continuous bombing of Iraq: ” ‘We own their airspace… We dictate the way they live and talk. And that’s what’s great about America right now. It’s a good thing, especially when there’s a lot of oil out there we need.”
