Additionally, while we have discussed on this list how the main one to 
profit from the war in Afghanistan has been China (and the copper mine at 
Mes Aynak which is about to eradicate nearly 1000 years of irreplaceable 
Afghani Buddhist history), guess who is managing to gain the most 
benefit/profit from Iraq?


First two paragraphs reads:

"Since the American-led invasion of 2003, Iraq has become one of the world's 
top oil producers, and China is now its biggest customer.

"China already buys nearly half the oil that Iraq produces, nearly 1.5 
million barrels a day, and is angling for an even bigger share, bidding for 
a stake now owned by Exxon Mobil in one of Iraq's largest oil fields. "
