    Re: China Is Reaping Biggest Benefits of Iraq Oil Boom

    Since the Iraqi oil fields came back online, China and France have dominated the contracts involved (let's note, Iraq far exceeded previous production a short time after the invasion). I've been saying this for years. It's nice that the fringe left is finally admitting such.

    Here are links to the 3 oil fields I found most easily. Apparently, China has its fingers in 2 out of 3 of them. Maybe there are more oil fields, I don't know.

    How many troops did we send to Libya for your "invasion"? We sent over 200,000 troops into Iraq. Over 4500 died there too.

    You miss the point, both were all about oil. Doesn't matter how many troops went where or how many plans when there.

    So Iraq was all about oil for China? Why would we do that?

    I guess this destroys the idiocy of all those on the left who charged that the war in Iraq was all about oil. Or are you claiming that Obama screwed up the grand plan and didn't secure all the oil for the US?

    That was not the intent until Obama came along and pulled out and gave it all to China. Why would he do that'?

    We can't go steal another nations natural resources. We can, however, allow that nation to sell their resource on the global market. This increases supply thereby reducing demand. I wonder how much of that chinese money going to iraq used to go to iran. Hmm...
