Oh, and thanks for being interested in statistics. It shows the caliber of your intellectual ability.
Well thanks, but I got a feeling after this talk Crakr's gonna come along and blow smoke up my ass regarding credibility. Then again he`ll probably just get weary of this and just move along to the next hot button topic.

@Cajun - agreed.
I think the war isn't about oil due to my calculations, but like you state, there is too little information.
However, there is enough data to make the statement that the Iraq war was not due to need for oil, because there was no difference in Clinton and Bush`s imports in oil, refined products, or petrol products from Iraq to the US (p > 0.05).

For future reference.. you need to compare things that are similar.. like presidential terms.. but that isn't truly fair either, because you have to account for time.. inflation, demand, cost, etc.
