    .S. Companies Shut Out as Iraq Auctions Its Oil Fields

    Those who claim that the U.S. invaded Iraq in 2003 to get control of the country's giant oil reserves will be left scratching their heads by the results of last weekend's auction of Iraqi oil contracts: Not a single U.S. company secured a deal in the auction of contracts that will shape the Iraqi oil industry for the next couple of decades. Two of the most lucrative of the multi-billion-dollar oil contracts went to two countries which bitterly opposed the U.S. invasion Russia and China while even Total Oil of France, which led the charge to deny international approval for the war at the U.N.

    I'am sure all the folks at Halliburton are happy as hell that they don't get to service the wells either just less work for Americans to have overseas. It only cost us about 2 trillion in taxpayer money and 3 thousand deaths of GIs to get those wells into the hands of those wonderful folks who buy all our debt and keep us afloat. Eggroll and Caviar anyone?
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.
