Every stinking thing about this forthcoming war is related to oil. From those who support us to those who oppose us it's all about that black gold. Makes you want to take up bicycling.
Maybe it's a coincidence, but American and British oil companies would be long-term beneficiaries of a successful military offensive led by the United States and Britain to remove Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
Industry officials say Hussein's ouster would help level the playing field for U.S. and British firms that have been shut out of Iraq as Baghdad has negotiated with rivals from other countries -- notably France, Russia and China, three leading opponents of war.
Hey, Bush does something right! NO more bothersome calls. Well..sort of. Charities, surveys and calls on behalf of politicians would be exempt.
