The Great Iraq Oil Robbery

Flow Charter: 'Anti-War' Democrats Give Bush Victory on a Platter

Future of Iraq: The spoils of war

he US government has been involved in drawing up the law, a draft of which has been seen by The Independent on Sunday. It would give big oil companies such as BP, Shell and Exxon 30-year contracts to extract Iraqi crude and allow the first large-scale operation of foreign oil interests in the country since the industry was nationalised in 1972.

The huge potential prizes for Western firms will give ammunition to critics who say the Iraq war was fought for oil. They point to statements such as one from Vice-President Dick Cheney, who said in 1999, while he was still chief executive of the oil services company Halliburton, that the world would need an additional 50 million barrels of oil a day by 2010. "So where is the oil going to come from?... The Middle East, with two-thirds of the world's oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize ultimately lies," he said.

So the American troops who are fighting and dying in Iraq are not fighting and dying because Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, or because Saddam Hussein was in any way a threat to the US: they are dying for oil.

Iraqis will never accept this sellout to the oil corporations

This law has been discussed behind closed doors for much of the past year. Secret drafts have been viewed and commented on by the US government, but have not been released to the Iraqi public - and not even to all members of parliament. If the law is pushed through in these circumstances, the political process will be further discredited even further. Talk of a moderate cross-sectarian front appears designed to ease the passage of the law and the sellout to oil corporations.

This has been nothing less than a rape of a country for its resouces, and will go down in history as one of America's darkest deeds.

Surge Protection Plan

The Zionists are circling the wagons against the attack from the Establishment (you know, the guys Noam says rule the world). Condi Rice has been unreliable since Israel embarrassed her and the United States by slaughtering innocent civilians at Qana at exactly the same time that Condi was trying to convince the Lebanese of American bona fides in the Middle East. She thus is going to be given the firm hand of reliable neocon John Negroponte, just to ensure that the State Department, which shows a deplorable enthusiasm in protecting the American Empire by looking out for oil interests in the Middle East, is finally brought under total Zionist control. His main job, already noted by the alert British press, is to protect the surge plan from the predictable counterattack from those actually concerned about the interests of the United States.

Surging toward the holy oil grail

12,000 more Guard may go to Iraq

Blair rejected Iraq troops plea

TONY Blair formally rejected an American appeal to send hundreds more British troops to Iraq to help with US "surge" tactics.

Translation: the "coalition of the willing" has now devolved to "the coalition of the non-existent", and Bush is very much on his own with his "surge".

Blair announces Iraq troop pullout :

Tony Blair, the British prime minister, has said that Britain will reduce the number of its troops in Iraq by 1,600 within the coming months, but UK forces will maintain a presence into 2008.

From his office in clouded cuckoo land: Cheney says: UK Troop Withdrawal 'Sign Of Success' In Iraq: Cheney said Pelosi and other Democrats were pushing a policy in Iraq that would "validate the al Qaeda strategy."

Lithuania mulling Iraq troop withdrawal:

Israel linked to Iraq intelligence failure

Israel was a "full partner" in American and British intelligence failures that exaggerated former president Saddam Hussein's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs before the US-led invasion of Iraq, a report by an Israeli military research centre has alleged.


How Israel Manipulated Western Intelligence Agencies

The report, titled "The War in Iraq: An Intelligence Failure?" was written by Shlomo Brom, a brigadier general in the Israeli Army reserves, and said what no one seems to have dared publish since President George W. Bush decided to wage war on Iraq. Shockingly, it told the full truth about the American and British intelligence "sources" making the case for war.

In fact, according to Brom, these sources were utterly compromised by Israeli intelligence, which made the case for starting the war and kept it going as long as necessary. The retired general described Israel as a "full partner" in US and British intelligence failures that exaggerated Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs in the lead up to the US-led invasion.
