I was listening to the news the other night,according to them,even though we have the oil fields,we can't do a lot with them yet.On top of the UN
sanctions against Iraq,France and Russia will veto power over anything we try to do with the oil.Iraq owes them huge amounts of money.Whether any oil
deals done with Saddam are valid at this point I'm not sure.
It would be nice if the French and Russians would forgive those debts and let the new Iraqi government start off with a clean slate.But that is about
as likely as the French going to war,it 's not going to happen.
