Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Correction.

Cheney & Bush want to have it in place before they leave office. Big Oil are indeed more pragmatic about its practical use.

But I do not see the US "finally leaving", any more than they "finally left" Cuba, unless they perceive security of access to Iraqi oil.

The Oil Law is about more than securing favourable access it is about securing favourable price.

And it may well be taking on a totemic significance because I do not believe that there was any other motive - for Cheney and Bush at least - for the invasion of Iraq.
