First of all, I would like to thank you for serving in the army and defending the oil companies interests. If this war never happened who knows what
kind of prices we would be paying for oil.
As an Iraqi, I will safely say that conditions used to be much better when Saddam was in charge. Having been to Iraq to visit family in recent times,
I could safely say how much worse it has gotten. More people living on the street and living in poverty. My aunts area used to be a great area, it was
a booming area, until the war happened.
I understand you have a job to do and you must do it without questioning orders. But don't you think that you're fighting a resource war? I mean
Saddam's weapons of mass destruction would have barely scratched the surface of Iran, yet it is worth an invasion?
I will tell you why you are fighting this war. To secure the oil fields so that prices stay high across the world. If Saddam was in charge of Iraq, I
guarantee that he would have undercut the whole market to make more money than the competition. That is why he was a threat.
My friend, as much as I appreciate you fighting this war you are the attacker and not the defender. I have no sympathy for guys pushing the agenda of
big corporate snakes.
Where are we now? Countries are in debt, taxpayers must pay big time. I guess we could look at the bright side of all this, companies like
Halliburton, Exxon, Lockheed Martin, Titan, CACI, etc. are all doing great! Thanks a million.
