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. Bechtel of San Francisco, USA has been awarded over $2.4 billion for infrastructure rehabilitation through USAID contracts. Flour AMEC, LLC, Greenville, South Carolina, USA has been awarded nearly $1 billion for water, sewer of solid waste management systems. Parsons Corporation of Pasadena, California has been awarded $1.3 billion for construction services. Washington Group International of Boise, Idaho, USA has received awards of $580 million for water resource reconstruction projects. Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR), a subsidiary of Halliburton of Houston, Texas has received awards of $580 million. Another $1.2 billion has been distributed to Iraqi contractors. In 2005/2006 Symbion Power of the US were awarded $250 million of competitively bid new fixed price electrical infrastructure work throughout the country. Symbion Power is a privately owned engineering firm with an ownership structure that involves a security company Hart Security.The dollar figures provided here are as of July 2006.[12]

You two gals keep laying out the truth like this, and w/any luck at all, we might just be in the FEMA camp together!
Feodor Dostoyevsky, a fervent Russian Orthodox Christian and survivor of a Siberian camp, said that bringing the dissidents to those prisons was the regime’s greatest mistake, as once widely-scattered opponents could meet, discuss, and re-formulate their next attack on TPTB….
See ya at Kamp Koncentration, home of patriots!

SEEING IS BELIEVING! The Iraqi jet, an advanced Russian MiG-25 Foxbat, was found buried in the sand after an informant tipped off U.S troops. The MiG was dug out of a massive sand dune near the Al Taqqadum airfield ! by U.S. Air Force recovery teams. The MiG was reportedly one of over two dozen Iraqi jets buried in the sand, like hidden treasure, waiting to be recovered at a later date. Contrary to what some in the major media have reported, not all the jets found were from the Gulf War era. The Russian-made MiG-25 Foxbat being recovered by… Read more »

Hold on here, whoa! I remember Hussein bringing this upon his own head by deceiving the world, not just the United States or George Bush, but the world into believing he did have WMDs. So this is a fictitious report with half truths at best. President Bush and the World, gave Saddam one opportunity after another to come clean, and Saddam didn’t, as a matter of fact, Saddam even pushed the envelope saying he had chemical warfare weapons. The world, not only the U.S. and George Bush pushed for sanctions to force Hussein to turn over his WMDs and chemical… Read more »

I want to make clear too. The crooked companies that developed indirectly from the war on Iraq, is something that has repeated it’s self from the very first battle ever fought, and the killing of Able by Cain. We will always have those who will take any advantage they can, to exploit money off a terrible war…But there are many more who do not. Capitalism is a good or bad as the men and woman who create and run their businesses. But the Iraqi war, came out of Husein’s threat, not because of Capitalism. I don’t believe for a moment,… Read more »

Bush and Cheney wanted Saddam gone, they figured with Saddam out of the picture, they would score a trifecta; The Likudniks in Israel and the US would be solidly in their corner, Eye-Rak would be opened for business ( from McDonalds to B of A) Every Eye Raki would be enslaved with usury (credit cards), and the oil fields would be opened to the Texas oil mafia. A nice side bar was the show case of American kick-ass firepower & sales of high-tech weapons, Bush / Cheney killed our economy through their stupidity and arrogance. Perhaps SAGE can dig up… Read more »

Excuse me, but our LTG and sage_brush both have done very good research and writing here, so I find the remarks made by ‘jericho 777’ [does that mean you’re one up on ‘666’?] and the eponymously named Sheik Yerbutie to be not only facile and irrelevant, but disrespectful of these good women’s labour. I hope that Eowyn soon finds you out and banishes you both from this blog….
