Fox News host wants US to take Kuwaiti, Iraqi oil

January 19, 2011

A Fox News talk show host has called for taking Iraq and Kuwait’s oil and ‘making them pay for their liberation.”

Sean Hannity who was discussing high oil prices with his “Great American Panel,” expressed outrage at the proposed price increases in oil and suggested that Kuwait and Iraq should be made to pay.

“I say why isn’t Iraq paying us back with oil, and paying every American family and their soldiers that lost loved ones or have injured soldiers – and why didn’t they pay for their own liberation? For the Kuwait oil minister – how short his memory is. You know, we have every right to go in there and frankly take all their oil and make them pay for the liberation,” Hannity said on Friday.

The panel agreed with Hannity on the pricing of crude oil and how it hurt the US, but none of the three panelists endorsed the suggestion to take Iraqi or Kuwaiti oil on the claim that the US military liberated both nations.

Last month, Shaikh Ahmad Al Abdullah Al Sabah, Kuwait’s oil minister, said that the global economy can withstand an oil price of $100 a barrel.
