The byline says the following:
“The return of the four major Western oil companies will be greeted with dismay by many Iraqis who fear losing control of their vast oil reserves.”
…really? You think that they are in Iraq for a vacation? I mean, from the start, did anyone really truly believe coming here was a altruistic venture? What oil company…..or ANY large scale corporation has altruism in mind? I’m not bagging the article, which you can read here, but this really shouldn’t be news.
And two-year no bid agreements for all of them, I’m surprised they didn’t come sooner. (LOL @ two years. Has to be an inside joke of some kind)
