ScavengerA slimy oil tycoon says Iraq owes us:
T. Boone Pickens told Congress on Wednesday that U.S. energy companies are "entitled" to some of Iraq's crude because of the large number of American troops that lost their lives fighting in the country and the U.S. taxpayer money spent in Iraq.Entitled? U.S. energy companies are entitled?
So Pickens thinks that our young men and women spilled blood in an unjustified war that devastated a country and killed hundreds of thousands more of its people so vultures like him can pick on the remains.
To say that's disgusting isn't disgusting enough.
