  •  Great post...note lack of US/UK oil companies (5+ / 0-)

    It is interesting that the KRG is working with Norwegian, Canadian and Turkish companies.  I wonder if Cheney wants those contracts invalidated so that US and UK oil companies can get those contracts.  

    That was the whole point from the beginning.  Saddam's French and Russian oil contracts that would have been valid as soon as sanctions were lifted.  The war was a way to get those contracts for US and UK oil companies and now all of that is falling apart around them.
