Daily Dissent: Bush's reverse midas touch

AKA shitmaking touch: everything - and everyone - he touches goes to shiite -- law

The New Arbusto

Guerrilla sabotage has deprived Iraq of billions of dollars in crude oil sales that the U.S. and Iraqi officials had hoped would fund rebuilding after the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003. [...] The relentless guerrilla campaign, which also includes suicide bombings and the killing of officials and civilians, has forced Iraq to rely almost entirely on its southern oilfields for exports. But they too are vulnerable. Saboteurs targeted a power station outside Baghdad on Monday, leaving the southern port city of Basra and the capital in the dark for 12 hours and halting export flows from the country's Gulf terminal. Iraq is exporting about 1.5 million bpd, below its pre-war capacity of 2.2 million bpd.

A failed oiled business in Texas, and now Iraq is on it's way. Everything George touches...
