Bush's and Ethiopia's recent aggression in Somalia was also about oil. From my blog:

Again, securing oil for U.S. oil companies appears to be behind the attack on Somalia, Bloice reports. "On file are plans - put on hold amid continuing conflicts - for nearly two-thirds of Somalia's oil fields to be allocated to the US oil companies Conoco, Amoco, Chevron and Phillips," Bloice wrote.

"It was recently reported that the US-backed prime minister of Somalia has proposed enactment of a new oil law to encourage the return of foreign oil companies to the country."
