From the “New York Times” this lovely Sunday morning comes the article entitled “Iraqis Near Deal on Distribution of Oil Revenues.” The article is an interesting read. It inadvertently reaffirms the notion the pre-emptive conflict in Iraq was initiated by the United States government to secure access and de facto control of the nation’s resource, oil.

The article states American officials “have urged Iraqi politicians to put the oil law at the top of their agendas, saying it must be passed before the year’s end.”

I wonder what the Iraqi people think of a governmental “list of things to do” in which laws pertaining to the status of oil and its allocation occupies the premier spot.
