ABSTRACT
This article discusses a law regarding the oil industry, which is expected to be passed by the Iraqi parliament. The author views this law as the latest in a decades-long history of attempts by the oil industry and the United States government to gain control of Middle Eastern oil fields. This leads to a characterization of United States foreign policy as dishonest and imperialistic. The author fears that it may already be too late to do anything about this situation, which he finds deplorable.
