No bloody wish

The political economy of the war on Iraq so reads the caption of the work by Elvis Cheung at a graduation exhibition I saw in Hong Kong in 2011.

If I were to make a wish for the year of the dragon, it would be quite appropriate to paraphrase the No Blood for Oil into
No blood for goods
No blood for food
No blood for toys
No blood for clothes
No blood for Consumption
No blood for Peace
No blood for benefits of the petite minority

The list elongates to infinity.

No Blood for Oil  - Elvis Cheung

No Blood for Oil - Elvis Cheung

If the absolute No appears unrealistic, can we at least get a bargin and swap “some sweat” for “NO blood“?
