That's what republicans/teabaggers called anyone who disagreed with George or even questioned his actions.

Republicans/teabaggers changed their tune real quick on a president "during a time of war".

All the sudden they became "patriots"?

You have to understand that people like Wall St. only believe things they read that have no backing whatsoever, and they like to tout them as fact, as long as the "facts" they are touting can no longer be found anywhere. Wall St has no facts or background in the Middle East, but likes to argue with those that do,(I worked in the oil industry for six years in the Gulf).

It is "patriotic" to question your government.

I have a lot of disagreements with the current one myself.

According to teabaggers we must completely support our president in a time of war.

Anyone who doesn't, is a communist and should leave this country.

You're going to wear out your pom poms out if you don't take a break soon.

Oh, that's right, you'll just have responsibility, harvey, MCP, WSG, CC, Go Blue, or one of the other paid Obama supporters take over for you after you've posted you lib propaganda for a day or two.

OregonSux for a couple of days, responsibility for a few days, harvey for a couple of days, MCP, WSG, CC, and Go Blue for a few days, etc, etc, ad nauseam.

You can carry-on with your blind love for Obama now OregonSux (unless your stomach is too full of whatever it is you're sucking).

Btw OSux, 10 to 1 says you've got a photo or poster of Obama in your dwelling...

That is true it is a bad link, however what I posted was from the first auction, there were 3 more to follow the last being earlier this year.

Every auction they have held the rules changed with each one.

Shut out is an overstatement:

Jan 2012

Baghdad, Iraq - While the US military has formally ended its occupation of Iraq, some of the largest western oil companies, ExxonMobil, BP and Shell, remain.

On November 27, 38 months after Royal Dutch Shell announced its pursuit of a massive gas deal in southern Iraq, the oil giant had its contract signed for a $17bn flared gas deal.

Three days later, the US-based energy firm Emerson submitted a bid for a contract to operate at Iraq's giant Zubair oil field, which reportedly holds some eight million barrels of oil.

Earlier this year, Emerson was awarded a contract to provide crude oil metering systems and other technology for a new oil terminal in Basra, currently under construction in the Persian Gulf, and the company is installing control systems in the power stations in Hilla and Kerbala.

Iraq's supergiant Rumaila oil field is already being developed by BP, and the other supergiant reserve, Majnoon oil field, is being developed by Royal Dutch Shell. Both fields are in southern Iraq.

Iraq is one of the largest oil exporters to the US, and has plans to raise its overall crude oil exports to 3.3m barrels per day (bpd) next year, compared with their target of 3m bpd this year, according to Assim Jihad, spokesman for Iraq's ministry of oil.

To date, only about 2,000 wells have been drilled in Iraq, compared with roughly one million wells in Texas alone.

"The US and other western oil companies and their governments had been lobbying for passage of a new national law in Iraq, the Iraq Oil Law, which would move Iraq from a nationalised to a largely privatised oil market using Production Sharing Agreements (PSAs), a type of contract model used in just approximately 12 per cent of the world's oil market."

Under the current circumstances, the possibility of a withdrawal of western oil companies from Iraq appears remote, and the Obama administration continues to pressure Baghdad to pass the Iraq Oil Law.
