Got Oil?

This is a rather interesting development in the Iraq War — the overarching reason for invading Iraq was to allow all the major oil companies to have access to Iraq’s vast oil reserves.  Iraq had nationalized its oil in 1972, thus cutting out all foreign companies, a situation that George Bush, Dick Cheney, et al couldn’t tolerate.  The invasion of Iraq was supposed to correct this problem.

But now it appears that Iraq failed to get the message that this war was all about oil — “our” oil, not their oil.  So what do we do now?  Time to re-invade the country I guess.
