  •  It's all about the oil. (3+ / 0-)

    The oil law, that was draw up by Paul Bremer at the very beginning, calls for 80% of Iraqi oil to be conveyed to American oil companies. That was the reason for the war in to the first place. The oil companies need product.

    But as I understand it, Sustani, the top cleric in Iraqi has said the oil law cannot be signed, because it is not in Iraq's best interest.

    Wow, I wish we had someone in power who had our best interests in mind.
