Oooh, they're all coming out of the woodwork now.
you know this piece is nearly 2 years old, yes?
it's a bit odd that it's on the 'most emailed' links currently on the BBC's News site......... i didn't see the date either, i thought it was a recent article (shows i'm a little out of touch with iraq), but originally read it and thought...
Of course, the real controversial question here, is: Is invading a foreign country for oil acquisition purposes legal? Is it a war crime to have lost so many civilian lives?
Or, were these lives an 'acceptable risk' to the Bush administration?
Should Bush, and even the wider administration plotting this, be brought to trial for such acts?
just a little thought, bring on the flaming
I also read this assuming that it was "new", why do the BBC put two year old articles onto their front page.
But hey, still interesting, even though everyone didn't half know this anyway, well at-least not the ones that have been brainwashed by the "war on terror".
EDIT: I thought it was on the front page, turned out to be just in the most e-mailed section, still weird, just not really BBC's fault.
No, I didn't think to check the date, as it was on the front page. Weird.
I'll get my coat...
Why do they want to destroy OPEC?
Why would they want to privatize the oil fields?
i think that would be best
i read a bit and thought, "didn't palast already write about this?"
I must admit it rang a faint bell with me, too. Good story, nonetheless.
OPEC isn't always nice to the US or the west in general.
A lot of people don't know this, but it's British Petroleum Company (BP) that is trying to take over Iraq's oil fields. They've already taken over Alaska's.
