Our troops died for this? Oil for the racist state of Israel?
Shoving a plan like this down the throats of the Iraqis will guarantee terrorism against the US.
Anyone that has a clue about what Israel is and what the Iraqis would not want such an oil deal should be contacting their representatives now)

Plans to build a pipeline to siphon oil from newly conquered Iraq to Israel are being discussed between Washington, Tel Aviv and potential future government figures in Baghdad.

US intelligence sources confirmed to The Observer that the project has been discussed. One former senior CIA official said: 'It has long been a dream of a powerful section of the people now driving this administration [of President George W. Bush] and the war in Iraq to safeguard Israel's energy supply as well as that of the United States.

To resurrect the pipeline would need the backing of whatever government the US is to put in place in Iraq, and has been discussed -- according to Western diplomatic sources - with the US-sponsored Iraqi National Congress and its leader Ahmed Chalabi, the former banker favoured by the Pentagon for a powerful role in the war's aftermath.

Sources at the State Department said that concluding a peace treaty with Israel is to be 'top of the agenda' for a new Iraqi government, and Chalabi is known to have discussed Iraq's recognition of the state of Israel.
