The last time the Saudis dragged the price of oil down by flooding the market, it was, oddly, just in time for the 2004 erection.

It's not about democracy, as anyone studying the management of post-invasion policies could see. If it were, the privatization of oil in Iraq would have been completed by now, and a number of small Iraqi oil companies wouldf have been getting on line. It's about OPEN, defense and control of.

For a fascinating documentation of this perspective, I suggest the fact-rich book "Armed Madhouse" by Greg Palast. It kind of opens up the seamy side of this revoltin' predickament.
