Here's a fact which you marxisant folk may find interesting.

Before the war started, the Bush administration lined up oil fire experts to
rush to Iraq to start work as soon as burning wells were captured. There are
three firms known to be in line for this work – all in Houston, Texas of course.
Step forward Wild Well Control, Cudd Well Control and Boots and Coots.

Boots and Coots has a really cheery telephone number. It's 1-800-BLOWOUT. Makes
you proud.
