the mind-boggling Truth about Iraq's money pit

Nothing I could say can adequately prepare you for the mind-boggling fate of billions upon billions of Iraqi dollars under US supervision.
"American law was suspended.

Iraqi law was suspended.

And Iraq basically became a Free-Fraud Zone.

In a Free-Fire Zone you can shoot at anybody you want.

In a Free-Fraud Zone you can steal anything you like."

* * *

"As trustees of the Iraq assets, we did a very poor job.

I think it was a failure.

After all, it was their money.

We should have spent it on the Iraqi people rather than sucking out of them and putting into the pockets of foreign businesses."

* * *

"And today, all across Iraq ordinary people are paying the price of that failure."
This is not just 'water under the bridge' as one US official in the clip would have us believe. Even the word 'failure' does not adequately describe it.

This is perhaps the greatest war-time swindle in history - a testament to just how criminal our government has become.

This administration not only dropped tens of thousands of bombs on Iraqis, they stole billions upon billions of their dollars. What makes it so remarkable is that they did it all out in the open. And, there's no end in sight.

Can you say kar-ma? What goes around comes around.

If we, as law-abiding Americans, don't bring these criminals to justice, we will end up PAYING FOR THEIR CRIMES.

Wait, what am I saying - we already ARE paying for their crimes!

While Iraqi newborns leave Iraqi hospitals in Braun cardboard boxes, Americans bleed increasingly larger chunks of their hard-earned money into the Death Star that makes this all possible.


Look at the WADS of freshly printed CASH being swindled RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES. That cash was printed specifically so that it can be stolen as it was.

The fact that it was printed was a freaking SWINDLE right there - the fact that they handed it to their buddies - for absolutely NOTHING in return - turned it into a DOUBLE SWINDLE.

HOLY CRAP! The whole world is a CRIME SCENE! And we're ALL witnesses!!!

One telling detail to put the larceny in perspective is that after all this time, the oil production in Iraq is still not metered (like the mythological bottomless wallet). At one point sources claimed the meters had already been installed, but in reality they're still dragging their feet on even selecting the contractor to do it. 'Free Fraud Zone' is a amazingly accurate description. You can't say they're not stealing everything that isn't nailed down because they're stealing that too.

old ranger, I just read your piece. I agree. We must do something to bring them to justice. I wish I knew where to begin, but I only interned one summer at the DA's office and I didn't handle indicting felons.

At the moment, however, it seems like before the American public takes any real action these bastards are going to have to do something else horribly catastrophic.

If they get their wish in Iran, that might be what it takes - mass food and fuel shortages and people killing eachother on the streets for a bite to eat.

So, why don't you have comments enabled at your blog?

Mainly because I didn't know exactly how to do it at first and then I figured I was the only one reading the blasted thing anyway. Let me ask this, how do we find out how to do these things, assuming that there would be a court in the land willing to go against the new dictators? There must be an accounting! We have to try. Just venting and stroking one another's egos is self defeating.

My guess is that we would have to find a prosecutor willing to risk giving up his political career - indeed his life - in order to bring these criminals to justice. Then, he or she would have to prepare a case against them and present it to a grand jury. From there, the scoundrels would have to answer before a grand jury.

But, the chances of finding a prosecutor willing to take such a courageous step are close to nil.

That being the case, I can't agree that it's fruitless to talk about and condemn their criminal outrages, even if it seems that way at times.

Eventually, the shit will hit the fan and the more people who are aware about where they should direct their anger and resentment, the better off we will all be.

Knowledge is power - even if it doesn't land these criminals in jail just yet.

Notwithstanding a court of law's power to indict and convict, the most important court in our nation remains the court of public opinion.

The American justice Dept. have recently approved the power of yoga and meditation vide a recent judgement in the American court."Man Who Slapped Wife Sentenced to Yoga, It's Anger Management, Says Judge." First there was house arrest. Now there's yoga. A judge ordered a man convicted of slapping his wife to take a yoga class as part of his one-year probation. "It's part of anger management," County Criminal Court at Law Judge Larry Standley said of the ancient Hindu philosophy of exercise and well-being. "For people who are into it, it really calms them down. " Standley, a former prosecutor, said the case of James Lee Cross was unique. Cross, a 53-year-old car salesman from Tomball, explained that his wife was struggling with a substance abuse problem and that he struck her on New Year's Eve during an argument about her drinking. "He was trying to get a hold of her because she has a problem," Standley said after the court hearing. "I thought this would help him realize that he only has control over himself." The sentence came as a surprise to Cross, who was told to enroll in a class and report back to Standley on his progress. "I'm not very familiar with it," Cross said of yoga. "From what I understand, it may help in a couple ways, not only as far as mentally settling, but maybe a little weight loss." Darla Magee, an instructor at Yoga Body Houston in River Oaks, said she would recommend that Cross take a basic yoga class emphasizing breathing and including a variety of postures -- forward bends, back bends and twists. "Yoga can help us to get rid of many emotional issues we might have," she said. "It's a spiritual cleanse." Prosecutor Lincoln Goodwin agreed to a sentence of probation without jail time because Cross had no significant criminal history http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory.mpl/metropolitan/2365341.
Yoga which is one of the greatest Indian co tribution to the world has got vast potential in all fields. In Tihar jail India Yoga is experimented among the inamtes and found successful. Their criminal mentality is changed. This study aimed at investigating the effect of Vipassana Meditation (VM) on Quality of Life (QOL), Subjective Well-Being (SWB), and Criminal Propensity (CP) among inmates of Tihar Jail, Delhi. To this effect the following hypotheses were formulated. 1. There will be a significant positive effect of VM on the QOL of inmates of Tihar jail. 2. VM will have a positive and significant effect on SWB of inmates. 3. Criminal propensity (CP) of inmates will decrease significantly after attending the VM course. 4. There will be significant difference in SWB and CP of experimental (Vipassana) group and control (non-Vipassana) group. 5. Male and female inmates will differ significantly in SWB and CP, as a result of VM. In the famous "Time" magazine the importance meditation and yoga, an ancient Indian system, is high-lighted that the ancient mind- and spirit-enhancing art is becoming increasingly popular and gaining medical legitimacy. It is a multi billion dollar business in US. In many Universities it is accepted as subject and included in the Syllabus. In the latest famous book "Inspire! What Great Leaders Do" written by Mr.Lance Secretan recently published by John Wiley and sons, the benefit of meditation is elaborately described for good corporate governance. By practising transcendental meditation, or TM, many people have got relief from back pain, neck pain, depression. The mind calms and quiets, . What thoughts you have during meditation become clearer, more focused. Anger, anxiety and worries give way to a peace. In the world exhorbitant medical expeneses one can definitely make use of meditation. Maharshi Mahesh Yogi and Sri Ravi Sankar are poplarising this. The Iyengar Yoga institute in US is famous.
In Bhagavad Gita Lord Krishna has inspired Arjuna to rise from his depression by preaching Gita in the battlefield and to rise from the depression to do his duties. In Holy Gita we can see, being hidden by the cosmic overview of any institution beset with myriad problems, not the least of which is its lack of moral probity, there is a groundswell of educated people seeking answers to deeply personal but universally asked questions. Chie Executives taking lessons from yoga, meditation and learning how to deal with human resources equations in an enlightened manner. Individuals from every walk of life can get ideas of how to be better human beings, more balanced and less stressed out.

Surah 100. Al-‘Adiyat (The Courser, The Chargers)

1. By the (Steeds) that run, with panting (breath),

2. And strike sparks of fire,

3. And push home the charge in the morning,

4. And raise the dust in clouds the while,

5. And penetrate forthwith into the midst (of the foe) en masse;-

6. Truly man is, to his Lord, ungrateful;

7. And to that (fact) he bears witness (by his deeds);

8. And violent is he in his love of wealth.

9. Does he not know,- when that which is in the graves is scattered abroad

10. And that which is (locked up) in (human) breasts is made manifest-

11. That their Lord had been Well-acquainted with them, (even to) that Day.?
