Blood for No Oil


From Tomdispatch today, Michael Klare writes on a desperately under-covered subject, particularly relevant as the antiwar demonstration in Washington approaches this weekend: Iraqi oil and the American occupation. "More Blood, Less Oil, The Failed U.S. Mission to Capture Iraqi Petroleum" http://www.tomdispatch.com/index.mhtml?pid=22859

points out a striking irony -- the American military occupation of Iraq has, in fact, driven Iraqi oil further out of reach of the market (at a moment when it was especially needed). As I say in my introduction to Klare's piece, two years-plus into the occupation of Iraq, we now know that the iconic protest sign, "No Blood for Oil" should actually have read: "Blood for No Oil." Don't miss this one.

The sickness of Americans by Carol Wolman
