For the past half century, the rest of the world has pretty much decided that they "can't be trusted" to deal with it.

Bush and Cheney, especially.

China and Iraq signed a $3 billion deal revising a prewar agreement for China's biggest oil company to help develop the Ahdab oil field restoring a project canceled after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, in fact the deal was signed by Chinese officials and Iraqi Oil Minister Hussain al-Shahristani, in August 2008.


Perhaps you're thinking of the billions of dollars in oil that was uncounted and unaccounted for earlier in the campaign....

And this implicates Bush and Cheney how? How does this support liberal ideology that we went to war for oil (which is now considered off the market to enrichen Bush/Cheney/Saudis, as the liberals claim)?

Where are you going with this?

Well, isn't it apparent... the fine job they've done since the beginning of time to keep the peace. The middle east was a garden of eden .

Somebody had to step in . Especially when the worlds main energy source is located there.

Couple of points here JBF, if you've got a minute.

1. I'm not a liberal. Voted GOP for more than 20 years.
2. Bush and Cheney went to war to control Iraq's oil. And what does that mean? That it was a war for oil? Maybe? Possibly?

Me thinks some posters on this board have a terrible time paying attention. I could be wrong about that.

Perhaps prices are rising due to the 2.9billion barrels of surplus sitting out on the oceans in ships, while 33% of US oil rigs have been packed up....wait till the economy gets crankin' folks will be dying for one of GM's new fuel efficient vehicles.
