The article contains rather speculative generalities about potential
preparations over the last four years. But I agree, this is more-or-
less the last ditch for the petro-imperialists: only two more years
"guaranteed" Bush-time in which to complete their Persian-Gulf oil-
empire project.

And potential trial, etc, for treason and mass-murder if they don't.
Tehran, Riyadh, police-state -- or bust.

Well, since the US does not get a single drop of Iranian oil.....I suppose
you are suggesting the US suddenly has decided to steal it?

Heh, that didn't stop us from invading Iraq, did it? Oddly enough, we still
don't get any of it, though when the dust finally settles, China prolly
will...

It *is/was* about oil and really nothing else, unless of course you think
it's sand, or something like that, 'cause it damn sure wasn't about 9/11,
WMD's, or for that matter democracy...

The building with the greatest number of armed guards during the
invasion of Baghdad was the Oil Ministry.

Oil ministry an untouched building in ravaged Baghdad

April 16 2003, 4:26 PM

Since US forces rolled into central Baghdad a week ago, one of the
sole public buildings untouched by looters has been Iraq's massive oil
ministry, which is under round-the-clock surveillance by troops.

The imposing building in the Al-Mustarisiya quarter is guarded by
around 50 US tanks which block every entrance, while sharpshooters are
positioned on the roof and in the windows.

The curious onlooker is clearly unwelcome. Any motorist who drifts
within a few metres of the main entrance is told to leave immediately.

Baghdad residents have complained that US troops should do more to
protect against the looters, most of them Shi'ite Muslims repressed by
Saddam Hussein's Sunni-dominated regime who live in the vast slum
known as Saddam City on the northern outskirts.

But while museums, banks, hotels and libraries have been ransacked,
the oil ministry remains secure.

The symbolism is loaded, considering how vehemently the United States
and Britain denied war opponents' accusations that the campaign to
oust Saddam was driven by oil lust. more

Interesting that a bright boy like yu can be so obviously wrong,
isn't it?
