    I think Iraq should out of gratefulness for all of the American blood and treasure that has been spent on their country. I think it should be at least 25% discount to the market price.

    No question, after what we have done for them. In fact, we should demand it, regardless of what liberals and the world community thinks about it..

    Iraqi oil is already in good hands Ken.

    Lookie here.

    [FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif]"Four major western oil companies, Exxon, Mobil, Shell, BP and Total, are about to sign US-brokered no-bid contracts with the US-installed Baghdad regime to begin exploiting Iraq’s oil fields. Saddam Hussein had kicked these firms out three decades ago when he nationalized Iraq’s foreign-owned oil industry for the benefit of Iraq’s national development. The Baghdad regime is turning back the clock."

    Why beg the Iraqi's for their oil when we can just take away from them? We're the "good guys". Ooorah!

    Pathetic practice MP...even for a liberal. :laugh:
