How does Bush have the right to bargain with another countries natural resources?
Pretty bold words if you ask me... I wonder whats in his plans to keep Sadam from setting the wells on fire again... Ill bet that a major plan for some of the 250,000 troops is to post a few guards at each of the thousands and thousands of pumps in the desert.
Quote: France & Russia warned support US war on Iraq or no Iraqi oil
Richard Lugar. (1/27/2003 - OGI: Cairo) France and Russia have been warned they must support the US military invasion and occupation of Iraq if they want acess to Iraqi oilfields in a post-Saddam Hussein Iraq. According to a report in today's Tehran Times, US Senator Richard Lugar, a leading member of the Bush administration and Republican Party chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Russia and France "must be ready to stand shoulder-to-shoulder in any US-led military intervention" if they want a share of Iraqi oil. The paper quoted Lugar as saying that Paris and Moscow oil companies will be deprived of Iraqi oil and have no share in the country's resources if they refuse to join in the US war to oust Hussein. It noted that both the Russian Duma and the French parliament have both expressed opposition to a US military attack on Iraq.
I like how the quote closes right before they tack on the part about if they want a share of Iraqi oil. I bet that Oil and Gas International and The Tehran Times are completely reliable and without any prejudice.
