Oil Politics

OIL POLITICS….Here are two questions for everyone to ponder over the Memorial Day weekend:

  1. Who do you think legally owns Iraq’s oil presently, and who do you think gets the largest share of revenues from selling Iraqi crude oil to the world’s refiners since the invasion?

  2. Who do you think should legally own, control and benefit from the sale of the Iraqi crude oil after Iraq is stabilized and Iraqi debts are restructured?

Serious answers only, please.
