Iraq oil info

The New York Post has an informative article posted called AT LAST, AN IRAQ OIL RUSH DELIVERS $15B ...
  • February 3, 2008 -- The gaunt 52-year-old Iraqi army private stands on top of a rudimentary guard post fashioned from huge, sand-filled hessian sacks, brandishing a rifle.

    The post stands in a strip of featureless brown desert, broader than a motorway, which is flanked by deep ditches, great earthen berms and chain-link fences covered in coiled razor wire that stretch away to the horizon in two almost impenetrable parallel lines.

It's worth noting that we are investing in infrastructure that is easier to protect from sabotage. Iraq would have had problems with this forever if it hadn't been addressed.
