Yeah, That Sounds Fair

Isn't this a nice sentiment:

"WASHINGTON, Oct 21 (Reuters) - Oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens told Congress on Wednesday that U.S. energy companies are "entitled" to some of Iraq's crude because of the large number of American troops that lost their lives fighting in the country and the U.S. taxpayer money spent in Iraq."

I wonder what natural resources in our country the Iraqis have a right to plunder, after we invaded their country, killed several hundred thousand of their people, destroyed their infrastructure, started a sectarian war, and left them with nothing?

These people are absolutely shameless. Anything, no matter how abominable, will serve as an appropriate opportunity to enrich themselves at the expense of others. Theft, murder, destruction wasn't enough for them- now they have to turn a profit on it.

T. Boone Pickens family moved her from Siberia across the Bering Strait land bridge 15,000 years ago...

Oh wait no they didn't.

But, T. Boone is right why shouldn't he profit of the blood of Americans spilled overseas it's not Operation Iraqi Liberation for nothing...

Maybe he thought it was Operation Iraqui Luberation. He probably thought the whole purpose of it was to provide America with more grease and oil.

You know, he's pretty old. Probably a little hard of hearing.
