It’s all about the Oil
If you’ve been living under a rock, or worse, subscribing to the bogus claims of the Bush administration to be bringing democracy to Iraq, the recently leaked legislation for Iraq’s oil (written by U.S. consultants in English and then translated) should prove the popular claim that Iraq was invaded to seize control of it’s oil for multinational companies, the majority of which are U.S owned.
The legislation includes splitting the proceeds into three regions (Kurd, Sunni and Shiite), effectively dismembering the country. Most galling is the control of all oil decisions by an Iraqi Federal Oil and Gas Council composed to include “executive managers from important related petroleum companies.” that is, Big Oil.
