You GOTTA love this part of the article:
"We are optimistic that after next year's election, in which everyone participates, there will be no question of the government's legitimacy and we will be able to complete the oil field maintenance we have planned," said Thamar Ghadban, who currently is a member of Iraq's parliament.
That maintenance will involve hundreds of well workovers in both northern and southern Iraq, where vandals streamed into the oil fields to remove and sell equipment following the US-led invasion in 2003, he indicated.
But it also will be part of a larger effort that also includes building a natural gas pipeline from the south to the north to help generate electricity, he said during an appearance at the Center for Strategic and International Studies."
