NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- When BP (BP) first moved into Iraq, "everyone laughed," said Jim Cramer on Monday's "Stop Trading!" segment on CNBC. What has the stock done since? "Nothing but go up," he said.

"People understand that being friendly with the Iraq government could mean a lot of good things," said Cramer. "I think BP is a huge winner." Cramer owns BP for his

charitable trust.

Iraq's going to be a huge winner too, he said, "because they can drill and drill and drill." He said



might even bring Iraq up when it reports earnings later this week.

Cramer also thought

"could get a lot of orders from this" and that



should consider going "into Iraq before BP locks it all up."
