Get ready America for more of the ‘transfer of wealth’ Obama spoke of on the campaign trail. Many hopeful and needy Americans thought that meant
from the richer to the poorer in this country. Much to their chagrin the constant transfer of wealth in the past few years have been from the poorer
to the richer, as we bail out the banks and mega corporations to big to fail and funnel more money that ever to our overseas allies.
Baghdad now wants a billion dollars to start cleaning up the environmental impact of the ‘ugly American’ caused by wear and tear on the ancient
city by American vehicles and personnel.
At first glance people might say ‘keep dreaming Baghdad’ but the sad truth is they will likely be given the money to prop up the Iraqi government
Several years ago I was dating a former naval officer whose job for the Navy prior to retirement was processing Saudi claims for environmental damage
by U.S. troops during the Desert Storm Operation. Basically if they said exhaust fumes from an Abraham’s tank dirtied a sand dune in the middle of
no where, we would pay hundreds of thousands to cart out the old sand dune, to replace it with a new sand dune!
Whether it’s Halliburton sending brand new vehicles to be crushed and compacted because they have a flat tire and they need to spend the million
dollars a day in their million dollar a day no-bid contract to run Iraq’s post war infrastructure or paying to restore a sand dune after some
careless soldier left a empty water bottle on it, the Middle East Wars are an endless money pit to the American Tax payer and our treasury now
trillions of dollars in debt, that our grandchildren’s grandchildren will still be paying the interest on the debt, from a principle that just grows
Yet I think we should also ask is this just another way to transfer money to the beleaguered and not to popular Iraqi Government and political parties
to prop them up for yet another tainted election to keep them in power?
When do the taxpayers stop paying for wars that benefit no one but the Oil Companies, Banks and Military Industrial Complex?
