The Spoils of Oil

Kathy over in Shakesville writes that the Iraqi "War on Terror" was always about oil; is still about oil; and will always be about oil. She writes that:
Back in January, Chris Floyd wrote an article about the real reason for Pres. Bush’s “troop surge” policy: access to Iraq’s vast oil reserves via a bill called “the hydrocarbon law,” which gives Exxon/Mobil, Chevron/Texaco, BP/Amoco, and Royal Dutch/Shell the lion’s share of Iraqi oil revenues.
I'm no conspiracy theorist, but it's pretty scary stuff. In any case, an interesting read, so go here.

Silly perspective if not so offensive.

I did say I'm not into conspiracy theories. :-) But how is it offensive?
