War constantly impacts the entire world, domestically for countries at war, and internationally within the system. Ever since 9/11, when two Boeing 767 planes were flown into the World Trade Center, the world economy has become increasingly complicated. Following the incident, the United States went to war in the Middle East, first in Afghanistan, then in Iraq, to protect American interests. Today, United States citizens, as well as the rest of the developing world, needs oil, which Iraq has a plentiful supply of, but Iraqi citizens still haven’t had the peace and humanitarian aid which they have been eagerly awaiting since the war began in Iraq in 2003.

Americans and Iraqis both recognize the potential trade options available, and in place, for exporting oil from Iraq to various regions of the world. Oil is

one of the most valuable and useful natural resources in the world. It provides for “gasoline, heating oil and jet and diesel fuel” (Patch). Iraqis and Americans know that oil is valuable, and that it is plentiful in Iraq. The population of both the US and of Iraq relies on their governments to act as “both protector and neutral arbiter of interests” (Cooke). We expect to be protected, even though we don’t always have ample national security, in
