Catch22

How Us And Uk Political Heavy Weights Profit From War

Recommended Posts

The War on Iraq and the War on Terror were propagated pure and simply for profit. The stealing of other countries resources has always be profitable. But where the "Establishment" heavy weights hit the jackpot is in the fact that tax payers money pays for the wars, but big business bank all the profits.

And guess who has fingers in the corporate pies that profit from such wars, why ex politicians of course. I dare say when Tony Blair finally retires from government he will be rewarded like all the rest.

It works like this, US and UK taxpayer money is diverted from social spending to pay for these wars. Plus the enhanced "security" needed back in the US and UK. But it is high ranking "Establishment" figures who profit from the contracts taxpayer funds pay to the Big Business Corporations who provide the kit which is needed to execute these wars. US and UK citizens die and are maimed along with thousands of innocent invaded peoples and all paid for buy the public purse, and the invaded peoples themselves by the theft of their countries resources.

Here is a good real time example provided by the BBC of such deals paying off handsomely for such companies and their ex government directors. First read the article Defence firm to be floated Then look at the company who will profit from the arrangement. Meet the Carlyle Group

We all know about Vice President Dick Chenny and his links to Haliburton the Oil and Defence Industry conglomerate Haliburton overview

Condoleezza Rice the U.S. Secretary of State and her Chevron Oil connection, hell they named a super tanker after her Rice and Oil

Personaly I reckon the US and UK electorate must be the most ignorant educated electorate on the plant. There again when the Media is run by the likes of Rupert Murdoch is there any wonder.

To better understand the corruption of the US and UK political systems you need to meet their paymasters, the biggest Oil companies in the World.

This article will make it clear why we were lied to by our leaders and why thousands died.

Iraq: the Struggle for Oil

quote the article:

Five companies dominate the world oil industry, two US-based, two primarily UK-based, and one primarily based in France.(4) US-based Exxon Mobil looms largest among the world’s oil companies and by some yardsticks measures as the world’s biggest company.(5) The United States consequently ranks first in the corporate oil sector, with the UK second and France trailing as a distant third. Considering that the US and the UK act almost alone as sanctions enforcers (and as advocates of war against Iraq), and that they are the headquarters of the world’s four largest oil companies, we cannot ignore the possible relationship of their policy with this powerful corporate interest.

US and UK companies long held a three-quarter share in Iraq’s oil production, but they lost their position with the 1972 nationalization of the Iraq Petroleum Company.(6) The nationalization, following ten years of increasingly rancorous relations between the companies and the government, rocked the international oil industry, as Iraq sought to gain greater control of its oil resources.

Following me around each thread I post on and making silly comments is not the way to go. When you learn to represent yourself without resorting to name calling and present factual evidence then I may treat you like an adult. Now go away and pester someone else like a good boy
