Why They Hate America

If you never found the time to read Confessions of an Economic Hitman this hour long interview with the author pretty well summarizes it. If you don't have the hour to spare, the gist is big corporations like Bechtel, Halliburton get countries to go deep in debt to pay for overpriced infrastructures (built by them) so that the bribed third world leaders get rich and the population gets taxed. Leaders who won't play along die. The war in Iraq is our contribution to the "award the big corps, screw the people club" - that and stockpiling tamiflu made by Rumsfeld's corp, medicare's prescription legislation written by the drug companies etc. We really have become a banana republic with questionable elections, corrupt leaders, and massive debt. The grateful corporations have moved offshore so they won't have to pay taxes and they will be safe when life gets miserable as our economy collapses. Even Microsoft has moved quite a bit of their operation to Ireland.

I predict we will pull out of Iraq when the ethnic cleansing is done so our puppets are safe to start awarding contracts to rebuild it. And the recruiter and Bush tell the young men they are fighting for freedom.
