The Iraq invasion is costing American tax payers $6 billion per month now. Where is this money going? Iâ€™ll tell you whereâ€¦to the war profiteers of the military industrial complex.
The top priority of Donald Rumsfeld was to downsize our military and conduct a privatization campaign where privately owned, for profit companies, can increase the size of the industry that makes a business out of war. This private and expanding war industry has, as their representative, the Defense Secretary of the United States. This is the man who has input into the decisions on how to use our military and who stages and coordinates the actions. This means he decides how the resources are usedâ€¦he decides who gets the money. Wouldnâ€™t you say that this is a little bit of a conflict of interest?
Well let me tell you a little bit about the Iraq invasion and privatization. We donâ€™t have enough troops there. We never had enough troops there. One reason that Donald Rumsfeld did not send enough troops there is so that the US tax payer would have to pay private militias, also known as security firms, to perform the tasks that our military would have and should have done. These private firms are making billions. They can afford to pay their private security guards $500 per day. This is why our valuable highly trained members of the military are not reinstating and they are signing on to these high paying tax leech companies, further weakening our military.
The companies making money from the prolonged insurgency are owned by friends of Rumsfeld, Cheney and the members of the Bush administration. You can trace many of the war bucks to members of Congress as well. A prolonged insurgency is a dream come true for these war profiteers. Is it any wonder that the entire operation was handled so poorly and that no effort was make to keep the peace once we went it? Is it any wonder why there was never even a plan to keep the peace? Actually there was a planâ€¦it was to prevent peace.
Put all these pieces together and logic tells you that this disaster of an occupation is working out perfectly for the people who sent us there in the first place. Too bad most of America has replaced logic and critical thinking with faith; they canâ€™t see the obvious even when someone takes the time to point it out to them.
There are many reasons that the Project for a New American Century and their hand puppet George W. Bush took this nation to war. Some reasons were religious or related to Israel, some reasons were ideological (good vs. evil), some reasons related to the acquisition of oil and some reasons relate directly to personal financial greed. One thing is for sureâ€¦we did not invade Iraq in order to protect America or its freedoms (which are being attacked, not by Iraq, but by the Bush/PNAC administration), and we are surely not there for any of the reasons that our media have forced you to believe, and that is becoming more obvious as each day passes.
