"Corporations have taken over the government and turned it against its own people."
Iraq was a neo-liberal invasion – so too have been all the countries that have fallen before and after Iraq. If it is not oil, it is some other ‘monetary’ interest that leads to the declaration of ‘war’ without any provocation. What happens thereafter is removal of restrictions to foreign ownership and trade, contracts given to foreign corporations to develop this that and the other. The smokescreens are ‘production sharing agreements’ where governments own the oil but the development of the oil field, the pumping, refining, shipping are all done by the foreign companies. It is simply draining out everything that should belong to the country and its people. American corporates NOT America or its people have secured the world’s second largest oil reserves which belonged to Iraq! This was why Bush immediately announced after the invasion of a Middle East Free Trade Area to spread the economic invasion to the rest of the region by 2013. That has happened through the Arab Springs! When Bush said he would ‘counter terror with trade’ it was a giveaway. The war plan was prepared by US consultancy firm Bearing Point Inc – which received $250millon contract to make Iraq’s economic infrastructure!
There was no law to state foreign companies had to hire Iraqis – so these firms imported foreign workers! What resulted were the Iraqis turning against the new invaders who came in as ‘liberators’. Whats more new laws entitled foreigners to buy land in Iraq that are now exclusive holiday homes for foreigners – is it difficult to picture what Iraq would look like in time to come?
The American troops are just kept in Iraq until the contracts are secured and this is the case in all other countries where military intervention have taken place.
The foreign contracts:
Halliburton’s subsidiary KBR is also been investigated for waste, fraud and abuse.
With all these foreign experts in Iraq, Iraqis enjoy only 11 hours of electricity a day in a country that had 24 hours electricity during Saddam’s rule. Potable water projects are useless when there is no electricity to pump water to homes, hospitals or Iraqi businesses! To add to Iraq’s woes the IMF has enforced a structural adjustment program that equates to nothing but the globalist agenda.
The real winners are actually the oil and gas industry – these are the people that donate billions for presidential campaigns to elect a President that would do what they want done. Is this not why for the 1st time under Bush, the President, Vice President and Secretary of State were all former energy company officials!
The references to local puppets comes in the form of local traitors who actually create and endorse laws that gave Iraq’s oil to foreign firms and allowed these firms to control virtual all of Iraq’s oil and they use a lot of Ox-bridge English to fool the masses! The traitors in Iraqi Government end up changing Iraq’s constitution so that all of Iraq’s developed and undeveloped oil fields fall into the hands of foreigners!
What happens in turn with the wave of corporate mooted military interventions taking place is that a 1% global transnational ruling class has emerged and they are far more dangerous than the terrorists using guns! They are the one’s creating the guns to use.
To this list of 1% includes global central banks, major investment money management firms, insurance companies etc and governments are only in their service!
It is this 1% who plan, manipulate, create and enforce policies - politicians are told to only carry them out.
This is what the US/NATO military industrial-media empire is all about and they are simply serving the interests of a group of transnational corporate class to protect their international capital and amass more wealth.
The transnational capitalist class is divided into
Note: the four are unlikely to be doing everything in cohesion – conflicts have arisen at times but the structure never changes.
To belong to the top 10% of global wealth holders, a person needs to have more than $72,000.
