My main intent is to expose the fear-mongering machine; and with any luck, disarm the machine by arming people with information. It's real news that the mainstream ignores, things I consider to be smokescreens, plus a few ideas on what to do about it all. Please see the bottom of the blog for older posts and a wide variety of resources that I consider need-to-know info.

US Oil in Iraqi Soil

One of the 18 key benchmarks to be met in September is to have the oil divisions settled in Iraq. Apparently, our administration is using their interests as a measurement of success in Iraq's progress. According to a recent Intelligence report that benchmark won't be met, and it goes on to say that no foreign company would be able to invest in 2008 - unless the US government backs it. Good news for the Corprotacracy; they will monopolize Iraqi oil!

I thought the Iraqi Parliament had already voted against selling-off oil to foreign interests (in lieu of their state's interests), as well as the US-authored plan to divide the population up. Perhaps they are still voting on the division issue, on creating provinces. However, I think that even just doing that, would better serve the oil companies to "divide and conquer." What if the oil was divided amongst the Iraqis? If each province actually owned a certain portion of the oil, then wouldn't they also have the right to sell-off any part of their share to foreign interests?

About Me

My photo
I had been writing a News & Politics column for an online magazine for a little over three years, and just last fall opened this blog to continue publication. I also had the pleasure of being the associate producer for a progressive talk radio host for about a year. Alittle of everything... I've advised small businesses, and I paint all kinds of things (boxes, figurines, greeting cards, personalized children's and other dish-wares, decor...). I still paint when I can, but mainly I'm manage a wholesale company for a Fair Trade, eco-friendly Jewelry & Homewares designer/producer out of Bali called, Verlu. You can see a full catalog of our line on the website, and there is now a list of our retailers for you to visit too. "Wear in everybody's Good Health!"
The political opinions expressed in this blog are in no way related to Verlu. The proud Progressive in me is thrilled to say I'm working with a company that operates in a manner respectful to both Mother Earth & Humanity; however, Progressive Mews is not meant to reflect any opinion - aside from my very own.
