These Wars Are About Oil, Not Democracy

No Blood for... er... um...

For TomDispatch.com, Tom Engelhardt writes: "More than five years after the invasion of Iraq - just in case you were still waiting - the oil giants finally hit the front page. Last Thursday, the New York Times with this headline: 'Deals with Iraq Are Set to Bring Oil Giants Back.' (Subhead: 'Rare No-bid Contracts, A Foothold for Western Companies Seeking Future Rewards.') And who were these four giants? ExxonMobil, Shell, the French company Total and BP (formerly British Petroleum). What these firms got were mere 'service contracts' - as in servicing Iraq's oil fields - not the sort of 'production sharing agreements' that President Bush's representatives in Baghdad once dreamed of, and that would have left them in charge of those fields. Still, it was clearly a start."
