    It was well reasoned and didn't leave room for debate.

    Re: Afghanistan clears oil deal with China’s CNPC

    Maybe Obama can negotiate a few 'green' contracts with them. Anyone that thinks Muslims respect pansy ass diplomacy and meek/weakness in thyeir business partners knows nothing about Muslims. This administration has given no one a reason to believe anything from them. Why would anyone want to engage w/ the US in oil seeking contracts when they see how we dop things in our own country?

    a commentor offered a salient observation:
    hey, if the govt. gets a good share of money through taxes from the project, and those taxes get spent wisely, its a great thing,

    The very definition of an oxymoron. It's the "wisely" that comes into question.

    Wait a minute.........I thought we fought this war so U.S. companies could go in and steal the oil.

    At least that's what the left has been saying for almost 10 years.

    Typical maroon! Take a look at Iraq. Before the war our Big Energy corporations had a 0% share of the Iraqi OIL, development, services and distribution. Probably about 60% now. What's that work out to in dollars and that;s not Euros anymore? The same thing going on in Afghanistan!

    Then you should easily be able to provide some type of proof rather than your opinion.

    Not really the oil cuz you can't have the best of both worlds. War to destroy the country and then you get rebuilding contracts. Oil job goes to China.
