Governments acting against the interests of citizens
- BAGHDAD (AP) -- Iraq's government is prepared to offer the U.S. a long-term troop presence in Iraq and preferential treatment for American investments in return for an American guarantee of long-term security including defense against internal coups, The Associated Press learned Monday.
Good God, more of the same. A government [the Iraqi one in this case] acting to protect itself in exchange for giving up its public's treasure. It's counterpart government [the US] is being asked to have more of its soldiers die in exchange for more filthy lucre for Halliburton and its ilk.
The Powerful looking for advantages for themselves for the petty price of a vast many young lives.
Truly, Greenspan was right: The reason the US is in Iraq is spelled O-I-L.
