Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Iraq War is at 100,000 b/d, and the Pentagon overall consumes something like 300,000 b/d.

So the War is 0.5% of US consumption (or 0.1% of world consumption), and the Pentagon is 1.5% of US consmptions (and 0.4% of world consumption).

Not small, but not that significant, relatively speaking.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
