Corporate Fascism Rebuilt Iraq – Why They Hate Us

Remember breathlessly watching the “Shock and Awe” of the destruction of Baghdad in 2003?  After months of demonizing Saddam Hussein’s regime and his weapons of mass destruction in the media, George Bush preemptively struck a country with no known connection to Al Quaeda or the 9/11 attack. 

After spending billions on the strategic deliberate destruction of the capital city of a sovereign nation that was never a proven threat,  the next round of spending went to private corporations to rebuild 

Funds from the US-operated IRRF are largely disbursed through contracts to private firms. Several US companies have been particularly prominent in receiving Iraq reconstruction funds.
