"That's what the World Bank is all about. It was created as an adjunct of the United Nations at the end of World War II, along with its brother
institution, the International Monetary Fund. On paper, its function was to lend money to developing countries to help them grow. Its real job has
been to serve the interests of the major money-center banks and the multinational corporations who make the big bucks in World Bank development
projects. The Bank, which is really a "fund," persuades a poor country like Ghana, for example, to build a new industrial complex in order make
stuff for export. It will lend the money to Ghana -- which it gets from global taxpayers including you and me -- and arrange for the complex to be
built by one of the favored corporations in the military-industrial complex. The list always includes Bechtel Corporation, Halliburton, and Kellogg
Brown & Root, a division of Halliburton. These outfits go in and build the projects because the locals have no expertise.
...Shultz also introduced Governor George W. Bush to Condoleezza Rice, who in turn introduced Paul Wolfowitz to Governor Bush back in 1999. Shultz of
course knew at the time that Wolfie and Perle and their neo-con Cabal were planning a war in Iraq, and we know nice, little "doable" wars (Wolfie's
word), are meat and potatoes for the military-industrial complex. Instead of squeezing nickels and dimes out of the taxpayers to persuade Ghana to
build a steel mill it doesn't need and can't run, even little wars run into the billions. And everyone gets into the act. The arms makers who
produce airplanes, tanks, guns, jeeps and humvees get to blow up a country (like Iraq) and Bechtel and Halliburton come in right behind to rebuild it.
In announcing the Wolfowitz appointment today, President Bush said the World Bank is a big organization and Wolfowitz has experience running a big
organization, the Pentagon!! As far as the military-industrial complex is concerned, Wolfowitz did a FANTASTIC job. He was only expected to plan for a
$30 billion war and he screwed up so badly that it is now a $200 billion war, and counting. Anyone who can screw up that badly deserves a promotion,
to the World Bank."
Interesting, still skeptical. Too easy that it's hard to believe.
If that's true, its the perfect operation.
