If the occupation of Iraq is somehow about democracy and peace, how is it that Haliburton, whose former CEO is George Bush's Vice President, received the incredibly lucrative contract to oversee oil production in that country - without having to bid competitively?
If the war against Iraq is all about protecting America from international terrorism in a post 9-11 world, how is it that the Bush Administration has done so much to shield powerful figures in Saudi Arabia from responsibility for their connections to 9-11 and terrorism in general? Why would Bush censor information from the 9-11 investigative committee that clearly pointed to terrorist support from Saudi Arabia? Could it have anything to do with the repeated and lucrative financial support that the Bush family has received from Saudi Arabian sheikhs?
If one follows the money - money that helped George W. Bush, money that is helping well connected globalists around him, money that is helping the corporations he is tied to - one can only conclude that the occupation of Iraq is not about peace or democracy, but profit and power.
This is an occupation built on greed and corruption. It must end. And the motives of those who drive it must be exposed.
