Would you rather have Chinese and Russian firms develop the oil fields?
Wow, just wow. Where do these people come from ?
Robert said... "Would you rather have Chinese and Russian firms develop the oil fields?"More to the point: Are four thousand American lives, several hundred thousand Iraqi lives, 2 million displaced Iraqis and about a trillion US dollars worth securing these no bid contracts so the Chinese and Russians don't get them?
But don't you dare say the war was about oil.
Of course the war was about securing energy. Of course it wasn't worth the deaths of thousands. Given the present situation with the Iraqi gov't barely on its feet, what is wrong with our oil companies building up their infrastructure? "wow just wow where do these ppl come from?" Obivously not the shit hole you crawled out from.
But, but I thought the war wasn't about oil??? You mean the administration lied? (end sarcasm)
When did the U.S. lose the ability to compete in the world ? Sweetheart deals and militarily enforced contracts doesn't seem like capitalism to me.
I suggest the organizers arrange some other merchandise - not just the book but other items, such as bespoke 'architectural war' permanent strategy for highly textured- to ensure the wives compete rather than consort.
