The Deconstruction of Iraq

When the US invaded Iraq it had been debilitated by a decade of sanctions, but its infrastructure was in tact. Three years later, the US has succeeded in turning this once great civilization into a wasteland.
The ambitions of 2003, when President Bush spoke of making Iraq's infrastructure "the best in the region," have given way to the shortfalls of 2006, in electricity and water supply, sanitation, health facilities and oil production. A University of Maryland poll in January found strong majorities of Iraqis hopeful about their country's future in general, but only one in five thought the Americans had done a good job on reconstruction.

Even after billions were spent on power plants and substations, electricity generation still hasn't regained the level it had before the U.S. invasion of 2003. When Fallon's experts keep the lights burning late, they're relying on emergency U.S. generators in their "Green Zone" enclave, since the rest of Baghdad gets power only a few hours a day.

Barely one-third of the water-treatment projects the Americans planned will be completed. Only 32 percent of the Iraqi population has access to clean drinking water now, compared with 50 percent before the war, according to the U.S. special inspector-general for Iraq reconstruction.

About 19 percent of Iraqis today have working sewer connections, compared with 24 percent before 2003.
In short, Iraq is destroyed. The US liberated Iraqis from their infrastructure.
After three years in which the U.S. government allocated more than $20 billion for Iraq reconstruction, a bill now making its way through Congress adds only $1.6 billion this year, just $100 million of it for construction - not for building schools or power stations, but for prisons.
On the ashes of Iraqi civilization, Americans build what they build best - prison camps.

The U.S. governments roles in Iraq revolves around the murderous and negligent interests of the corporate terrorists. I think we will soon see even less people with access to safe water, as the corporate terrorists at companies such as Coke soon move in to steal ground water to make soda, just as they have already done to many villages in India, who now have no clean drinking water due to the corporate terrorists at Coca-cola. When the corporate terrorists are involved, you can bet the people are getting screwed over.

"Citisucks" Only Promotes Diversion
(Mighty Thor, 9 Apr 06)

"Citisucks," u put way too much emphasis upon "corporate" and not enough on Jews and then their collaborators among the gentiles; thus u add to the confusion rather than clarification, diverting the people rather than informing them.

U're afraid to touch the Jew issue; u're not nearly as helpful as u might be. Ever heard of the AIPAC spy scandal (that's sure swept under the "rug," eh)?--what about Jack Abramoff, Jew lobbyist who entertained famous fall-guy and "cut-out," Mohammed Atta?-- or "Scooter" Libby Jew political technician who's now fingered Bush II himself for Plame-gate treason? Are these Jew criminals just coincidences?

Of course, the large problem is Jews and accomplices, the disease-of-opportunity taking advantage of a corrupt gentile Western culture suffering hubris and "Decline of the West," by Oswald Spengler.

We need a great cultural RATIONALIZATION in religion as much as any other cultural area, where we find "Judeo-Christians" (JCs) conspiring with Jews, enabling them, giving them legitimacy.

For Christianity is necessarily and properly ANTISEMITIC, and we merely need the honesty of REASON to get Christians be more aware of traitors and gross dupes of JCs led by Jew lickspittles Falwell, Robertson, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, et al.

CONCLUSION: Why is it these "corporate" types u talk about always favor and suck-up to Jews, if not Israel? (But be careful for the "good-cop, bad-cop" charade of pretended opposition btwn Israel and Jew-led and -inspired United Nations.) Honest elections and death to the Fed. Thor
