Robert Newman: Standup Comedy on The History of Oil


Only time changes. Motivations do not. History keep repeating itself in forms of newer and newer empires.

Robert Newman points out that WWI started because of Iraqi oil. In the early 2th century, a switch was being made fom coal to oil. Germany was building a railroad to Iraq to access the oil since Germany's colonies did not have oil. Furthermore, Germany was more technologically advanced than Britian. Britian had to put a stop to this.

Great stand up comedy by Robert Newman! It was performed in 2006 in a UK theatre.
