OPEC shill praises Saddam’s oil over Canada’s

“When most of us think about the rule of Saddam Hussein, we remember the mass atrocities. My favourite writer, the now deceased Christopher Hitchens, wrote extensively about it over the years. The genocidal gassing of entire populations of Kurds. The environmental catastrophe of draining Iraq’s Marshlands to spite the Arabs who depended on them. The deliberate spilling of 11 million barrels of oil into the Gulf.

Not many people would have the nerve to defend Saddam Hussein. Even fewer would have the temerity to suggest that Saddam was somehow a better steward of the environment than Canadians working every day in our oil industry.

But a shill for OPEC’s conflict oil would.”
