What Congress Really Approved: Benchmark No. 1: Privatizing Iraq's Oil for US Companies / by Colonel Ann Wright
Colonel Ann Wright served 29 years in the US Army and US Army Reserves and retired as a colonel. She served 16 years in the US diplomatic corps in Nicaragua, Grenada, Somalia, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, Micronesia and Mongolia. She resigned from the US Department of State in March, 2003 in opposition to the war on Iraq. http://tinyurl.com/36pup9 26 May 2007
On Thursday, May 24, the US Congress voted to continue the war in Iraq. The members called it "supporting the troops." I call it stealing Iraq's oil - the second largest reserves in the world.
The "benchmark," or goal, the Bush administration has been working on furiously since the US invaded Iraq is privatization of Iraq's oil. Now they have Congress blackmailing the Iraqi Parliament and the Iraqi people: no privatization of Iraqi oil, no reconstruction funds. http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/052607Z.sht...

Afghanistan plans gas pipeline
13 May, 2002 http://tinyurl.com/ybj2le

The pipeline is Afghanistan's biggest foreign investment project.
Afghanistan hopes to strike a deal later this month to build a $2bn pipeline through the country to take gas from energy-rich Turkmenistan to Pakistan and India.
Afghan interim ruler Hamid Karzai is to hold talks with his Pakistani and Turkmenistan counterparts later this month on Afghanistan's biggest foreign investment project, said Mohammad Alim Razim, minister for Mines and Industries told Reuters.

The construction of the 850-kilometre pipeline had been previously discussed between Afghanistan's former Taliban regime, US oil company Unocal and Bridas of Argentina.
The project was abandoned after the US launched missile attacks on Afghanistan in 1999.
US company preferred
Mr Razim said US energy company Unocal was the "lead company" among those that would build the pipeline, which would bring 30bn cubic meters of Turkmen gas to market annually.
Unocal - which led a consortium of companies from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Japan and South Korea - has maintained the project is both economically and technically feasible once Afghan stability was secured.

Chevron seen settling case on Iraq oil:
Chevron Admits to Violating “Oil-for-Food” Program While Condi Rice on Board./ http://tinyurl.com/22ad7q May 8, 2007

Chevron, the second-largest American oil company, is preparing to acknowledge that it should have known kickbacks were being paid to Saddam Hussein on oil it bought from Iraq as part of a defunct United Nations program, according to investigators.

The admission is part of a settlement being negotiated with United States prosecutors and includes fines totaling $25 million to $30 million, according to the investigators, who declined to be identified because the settlement was not yet public.

The penalty, which is still being negotiated, would be the largest so far in the United States in connection with investigations of companies involved in the oil-for-food scandal. http://www.iht.com/articles/2007/05/08/busine...

What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull," she said, pausing for a beat and a smirk. "Lipstick”.Sarah Palin said: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080904/ap_on_el_... “the first-term Alaska governor rocked the GOP convention with a star-turning performance”. The reporter said. "A star is born," Blitzer said.
"A star is born," said Anderson Cooper on CNN. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080904/ap_on_el_...
Republicans look at you. You are an embarrassment to America “Now”. You just set America back 40 years. If the media don’t bring on the “Pit bull” reporting that Sarah Palin requested in no un- certain terms, they need to start looking for another job…… This is not 2000 and 2004, when you would be fired by a representative of President Bush for reporting the truth….

Michelle Obama simply spoke, firmly, and she was labeled a militant angry Black- Women terrorist. Sarah Palin, by design, in her speech tonight was hateful, sarcastic and more belittling than most men; even, with a pregnant teenage daughter that she is parading around to get sympathy votes to fill full her personal hungry for power, and you, Republicans give her Sainthood.“To the point of drooling over this woman…Sarah Palin is referred to as the “Republican Star” How embarrassing .....Think about it for a minute. I can see how she could kill a man with a smile….http://www.andrys.com/p alin-kilkenny.html

Most Americans do not have pregnant teenagers…I can think of at least 100 that I know, who do not have pregnant teenagers, and I am “Black”. Additionally if they did, they would not be parading them around like a trophy for other teenagers to strive for…..

The statement above “Most men” that is with the exception of Rudy Giuliani; the number of votes he received, he doesn’t even count beyond the joke that he is….

Thank God for President Bush. I would make a fool out of you Republicans also; the Middle Class to poor one’s because you really don’t get it….. You deserves all that you a will continue to get bankruptcies, foreclosures, lost of jobs, no healthcare, one war after the other, which you are guaranteed to have if McCain is elected, including the reinstituting of the military draft and increases in your taxes; you deserve every bit of it, because you refuse get it…. I can no longer blame Karl Rove, George Bush and McCain; I would make a fool out of you too…. Obama is really too good for that 40 to 51 percent of you..…
