Well, there's definitely been blood, but where's the oil? I think we've spoken about this before: that tired old "no blood for oil" slogan that first appeared during the Gulf War and then again a decade later seems to me to be fundamentally wrong: yes, there will be blood, but you'll have the privilege of paying four times as much for gas as well.

Or, as a friend once joked, there should be a bumper sticker that says "4,000 war dead in Iraq and gas is $5 a gallon?"

True that. In the defense of the slogan, though, it doesn't indicate where the oil will go.
