    We all said it didn't we ? ( Iraq's oil ).

    When Tony Blair and his brainless buddy, Bush, took us into the war in Iraq based on some imaginary weapons of mass destruction we all knew then that the real reason for going into Iraq was to get Iraq's oil under our control instead of under the control of Saddam and his Ba-ath party.

    They - Blair and Bush - squirmed and wriggled on this hook for years as our brave service personnel and the innocent civilians in Iraq were slaughtered during the "Shock and Awe" attack on this country.

    Well, until we did a deal with the Iraqi paramilitaries in the South - led by Moghtada Al Sadr and his Mahdi army - we might never have had lasting peace in that country and we might never had access to the oil wells and the ports in the South of the country. We did, and now we DO have access to these resources.

    The latest to come out of Iraq is that BP, yes BRITISH PETROLEUM, are the first company to sign up for a deal in Iraq to get access to the oil lying under the South Western desert.

    Strangely this consortium is made up of British Petroleum and a CHINESE company called CNPC who will together hold 75 percent of the oil found in this field. Iraq's State Oil Marketing Organisation will hold the rest of the shares.

    I am sure that this will be only the thin end of the wedge for Britain and America controlling Iraq's massive oil reserves.

    I guess we were all right after all eh ?

    What I find amusing is that you actually sound surprised when you say that.

    I am not surprised at all as it had to happen some time didn't it ?

    The only surprising thing is that it took them so long

    I just wonder if this point will be raised in the up-and-coming enquiry into the war in Iraq ?

    I hope it is as then we will all know that the imaginary WMDs were just a smokescreen.
