In 2000, Big Oil, including Exxon, Chevron, BP and Shell, spent more money to get fellow oilmen Bush and Cheney into office than they had spent on any previous election. Just over a week into Bush's first term, their efforts paid off when the National Energy Policy Development Group, chaired by Cheney, was formed, bringing the administration and the oil companies together to plot our collective energy future. In March, the task force reviewed lists and maps outlining Iraq's entire oil productive capacity.

Planning for a military invasion was soon under way. Bush's first Treasury secretary, Paul O'Neill, said in 2004, "Already by February (2001), the talk was mostly about logistics. Not the why (to invade Iraq), but the how and how quickly."

In its final report in May 2001 (PDF), the task force argued that Middle Eastern countries should be urged "to open up areas of their energy sectors to foreign investment." This is precisely what has been achieved in Iraq.

http://www.cnn.com/2013/03/19/opinion/iraq-wa...

Before the invasion, there were just two things standing in the way of Western oil companies operating in Iraq: Saddam Hussein and the nation's legal system. The invasion dealt handily with Hussein.

"Mistrial declared in case of cop accused of killing girl"

Quote:
DETROIT The trial of aDetroit police officer accused of involuntary manslaughterin the death of a 7-year-old girl during a raid has ended in a hung jury.

Quote:
Family members of Aiyana Stanley-Jones began crying as the judge declared a mistrial and dismissed the jury.

Aiyana was shot in the head as the Detroit Police Department's Special Response Team executed a search warrant for a murder suspect May 16, 2010. Weekley, 37, is accused of gross negligence resulting in Aiyana's death during a raid at a home.

Aiyana was sleeping in the front room when police entered and she was shot.

Iraq's oil production has increased by more than 40% in the past five years to 3 million barrels of oil a day (still below the 1979 high of 3.5 million set by Iraq's state-owned companies), but a full 80% of this is being exported out of the country while Iraqis struggle to meet basic energy consumption needs. GDP per capita has increased significantly yet remains among the lowest in the world and well below some of Iraq's other oil-rich neighbors. Basic services such as water and electricity remain luxuries, while 25% of the population lives in poverty.

The promise of new energy-related jobs across the country has yet to materialize. The oil and gas sectors today account directly for less than 2% of total employment, as foreign companies rely instead on imported labor.

In just the last few weeks, more than 1,000 people have protested at ExxonMobil and Russia Lukoil's super-giant West Qurna oil field, demanding jobs and payment for private land that has been lost or damaged by oil operations. The Iraqi military was called in to respond.

Fed up with the firms, a leading coalition of Iraqi civil society groups and trade unions, including oil workers, declared on February 15 that international oil companies have "taken the place of foreign troops in compromising Iraqi sovereignty" and should "set a timetable for withdrawal."

Closer to home, at a protest at Chevron's Houston headquarters in 2010, former U.S. Army Military Intelligence officer Thomas Buonomo, member of Iraq Veterans Against the War, held up a sign that read, "Dear Chevron: Thank you for dishonoring our service" (PDF).

Yes, the Iraq War was a war for oil, and it was a war with losers: the Iraqi people and all those who spilled and lost blood so that Big Oil could come out ahead.

Just the type of response we have come to expect from Republicans. You've never been a party known for your respect of civil rights. Pretty much goes hand in hand with your stance on denying a woman's right to abortion.

racist heads explode....

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said George Zimmerman may have been acquitted of murder and manslaughter charges, but 'this isn't over with," and the Justice Department will likely look at the case.

"I support the system. I'll accept the verdict," he said on "Meet the Press" Sunday. ""I think the Justice Department's going to take a look at this. This isn't over with, and I think that's good, it's our system."

and SHAME on him for doing that!! SHAME!

More domestic policy FAILURE!

Perhaps neighborhood community councils should now implement new policies of friend or foe when doing safety and security checks...in regards to UNknown circumstances.

"Good evening, neighborhood council rep such and such--and your name is? And what address exactly is that you reside at? Okay, plz be safe and respect others as well along the way"

Kids, walking the streets alone in neighborhoods after dark these days-isn't really a safe thing to do.

Kind of like sticking your hand in a wasps nest and slapping at them "just because you can" and NOT expecting to be STUNG.

And any one that would try to portray reality as ANYTHING otherwise-is an IDIOT.

I don't think so.

NEITHER one was "Innocent" and BOTH had the same amount of "right" to be where they were...in the WRONG places at the WRONG time.

If some one crossed the BOUNDRIES of COMMON SENSE and jumped me on a dark rainy night, threatening my safety and well being---while others watching the whole thing were hollering out to KNOCK IT OFF....

He'd had a history of arrests for interfering with police officers, had filed civil suits against them in the past, as well as a long history of personal arrests. He stopped to start trouble with his dog, and that's what got the poor pup killed. Like I said the cop was a pssyfckphag, but the negro should be horsewhipped for acting the fool and getting his dog killed....
Really, you have access to his police record, so much so that you know how many tgimes he's been arrested. Okay
1. How many times has he been arrested?
2. How many arrests ended in convictions?
3. Please list the date, location and charge for each of his arrests.

Even if he had filed numerous civil suits, they would have been with city hall, do you really think in an area with the population of LA, the cops would recognize him?
