What can YOU say in six sentences?
The morning Journal wrote a small quiet article on Iraq; it seems that Exxon, BP, and Halliburton are going to spend tens of billions of dollars on the Iraqi oil fields.
Somehow they project that Iraqi oil will increase from 2.8 million barrels a day to 6.9 million and that doesn't count the new exploration going on in the western desert believed to possibly double that amount and let me see if I got this right; the only oil companies involved are American and British and if you do the math, that comes out to a nice tidy some of trillions of dollars!
Now I am certain that George W and slimy little Dicky Cheney had no thought about this when they set off their 'Shock and Awe' campaign, it was just the luck of the draw.
So if we extrapolate this into how many barrels of blood have been shed, the numbers were only a mere few hundred thousand gallons and that's a very acceptable number for extra dividends and bonuses.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, those army vets are going to come home to Britain and the U.S. and have to fight another war for a job because we pumped a trillion dollars into that war that bankrupted both economies but not to worry because our oil companies now have it for safe keeping and with trickle down economics we may get ten cents on our tax dollar!
I can hear the lyrics to that old Sonny and Cher song; 'and the beat goes on' and see comedian Lewis Black running around the stage nervously screaming; "We're fucked...... we're fucked.......we're fucked again!"
