Land of Black Gold

What better way for the United States and its oil companies to prove that the Iraq War wasn't about securing Iraq's oil reserves than awarding no-bid contracts to American oil companies that Saddam Hussein had frozen out when he'd nationalized the oil fields?

I'm sure Iraq War protestors are rooting about in their closets for their "No Blood For Oil" placquards as we speak.

As Matthew Yglesias says, "don't call it imperialism, we're here to help!"
