A Simple Explanation

    ...it implies that a secret and highly ambitious plan turned out just the way its devisers foresaw,...

    But it wasn't a secret at all!! Cheney and the boys at PNAC came up with this plan back in the '90s, but couldn't sell it to Clinton. I've been bitching about this for years because the whole thing is laid out very plainly on the PNAC website, but the American public doesn't care enough to even read it. It's infuriating.

    I'm with ryk. I, too, was writing about this stuff pre-invasion. No-one listened. Most Americans thought the PNAC was some sort of American welfare program. Well, in some ways they were right, but at what cost?

    The saddest part is that it's not about the oil for us, or for the betterment of the people of the United States or the Western World. It's not about free and clear access to the Oil for the welfare of civilization. If it were, oil would be sold slightly above that which it takes to pump it (less than $2.00 a barrel in Iraq).

    It's about oil rights for private corporations and then it's all about profit - gouging consumers for the maximum amount of money they can possibly pay while making sure some people go cold, or hungry. It's about inflating all prices and diminishing the size and scope of the middle class, because a vibrant middle class is a clear and present danger to capitalists, investors, and a political party dependent on a desperate, afraid, uneducated electorate.

    The two best selling commodities are drugs and oil and I fear the individuals running both are sleeping with our government. OK I confess, I mentioned once that I believe everyone believes in some conspiracy and this is mine - but they say I am crazy.

    You know, in an extremely odd way i find this article comforting.

    Yes, I said 'comforting'.

    It has been difficult to make any sort of sense out of what appears to be a manaical, spiralling juggernaut of war which only seems to eat up lives and money insatiably, without reason or humanity.

    Everytime i try to stand on the slippery slopes of media explanation or public deed, i end up on my face, still trying to explain it all; because none of it seems creditable.

    But as soon as i read that 'ten trillion' figure, i breathed a sigh of relief. It's not that somehow doomsday rethugs are playing an apocalyptic endgame with what they call 'the children of darkness'; it's not a cat-and mouse game of tag with the infinate shadows called 'terrorists' that always seem to vaporize upon touch; it's not even the huge Chinese puzzle box of spy vs. spy espoused by conspiracy theory;

    it's greed.
    Human greed, and that's all.

    That, at least, is tangible and understandable.

    And hopefully, as finite as the men afflicted with it.
