Global War Economy - Destroy and Rebuild

Over, and Over, and Over again.

What better way to "stimulate" an economy than to blow it to smithereens and send your pet corporations in to rebuild it?
President George W. Bush on Saturday named a delegation of business leaders and U.S. officials to visit Lebanon to discuss the rebuilding after the 34-day war between Israel and Lebanese Hizbollah guerrillas.

The group will be led by U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Dina Powell and will include Intel Corp. Chairman Craig Barrett, Cisco Systems Inc. Chief Executive John Chambers, Ghafari Inc. Chairman Yousif Ghafari and Ray Irani, chairman of Occidental Petroleum Corp.

The White House said the delegation will meet with Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora and will visit areas hit by the bombing. The conflict killed nearly 1,200 people in Lebanon and 157 in Israel.

The group is setting up a fund to seek private donations from Americans for the rebuilding.
You didn't think they'd do it for free, did you?

If you haven't already, now's the time to watch Why We Fight.

Good post. Somehow I also smell high-interest loan terrorist cells coming in to screw over all of the people. And of course idiot america will jump on the bandwagon and support and fund the corporate terrorists.

L. Fletcher Prouty, in his book JFK, touched on this same subject. The "powers that be" use the "agents" of the CIA to destabilize countries and entire regions around the world so the military-industrial complex can reap the huge rewards after a “war” is created. It doesn't matter that soldiers and civilians are slaughtered wholesale as long as the profits come rolling in. Whenever you hear of a coup around the world, chances are the CIA, working for its masters, had a hand in it for the sake of business and profits. After World War II we became the “colonialists” in place of the French (Vietnam), the British, and the Dutch. BTW, Brown & Root Co., the company that backed LBJ and put him in the Senate, was awarded huge contracts in Vietnam and is now a subsidiary of Halliburton—ya know, the folks that are rebuilding Iraq after our military jets bomb the crap out of the populace and countryside. And they’re doing it solely out of the goodness of their hearts.
