According to the Romanian newspaper of Evenimentul Zilei (English-version here), Romania, Bulgaria, Great Britain, Spain, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Poland will get the lion’s share at reconstructing Iraq. That is, after the US companies get whatever they please. Romania has a list of 32 companies ready to make money in Iraq, the most important of which are 4 oil-related commercial entities. Bulgaria, too, has a long list of companies, the most interesting of which is “Bulgartabak” (headquartered in the town of Blagoevgrad, also known for hosting the American University in Bulgaria), a cigarette company! According to the article, France, Germany, Russia, and Syria will not benefit from contracts in the new American-dominated Iraq.
