    Well.....interestingly enough...2 countrys who were the most vocal in their opposition to the war have moved in to take over one of the largest oil fields in Iraq and develope it!

    So much for the libtard mantra "War for Oil and Dick Cheney"...:cuckoo:

    Russians, Norwegians team up
    On Saturday, Russian private oil giant Lukoil teamed up with Norway's Statoil ASA to snatch the crown jewel of the auction, the 12.88 billion barrel West Qurna Phase 2 field in southern Iraq. It was something of a coup for Lukoil, which won the contract in 1997 under Saddam, only to see the dictator rescind the deal five years later.

    The U.S. companies at the auction, including Exxon Mobil Corp., stayed on the sidelines except for one failed bid by Occidental over the two days at the heavily fortified Oil Ministry.

    Iraq hails oil auction but risky sites shunned - Oil & energy-
