It is in my opinion corporate theft on a grand scale, and this $300 billion is just what we know about. For years the military industrialists have been ripping of governments with the tacit OK; paid for by their political donations.
The irony is, they rip off governments all over the world, then in their guise as citizens, they bleat about the tax ‘we’ are all paying… and their political donations pay off big time yet again, because they get the lion’s share of tax pay backs (top 5% of earners generally get about 80% of the monies returned).
So next time you fill up the car, remember, the high price of gas is to the advantage of the very same corporations that are responsible for the war in Iraq… unless you still believe in WMDs. They are also making countless billions directly out of this phony war, whilst millions are made homeless, a million or more are reportedly killed in Iraq and kids in the US and elsewhere go without decent health care and education to pay for this war.
