Leaving Iraq? Why, we just got there!

The invasion of Iraq was never about weapons of mass destruction, 9/11, "liberation" or any of the other reasons of mass deception with which the Neocon death cult attempts to bamboozle the American people. It is everything about establishing a beachhead in the Persian Gulf, and ultimately American hegemony over whatever oil is left under those sands.

Why do I say that? Because of the most under-reported story in our gelded media: the construction of permanent military bases in Iraq.

Educate yourself, please:

Elaborate U.S. bases raise long-term questions

Friends Committee on National Legislation

Counterpunch

Mother Jones

Associated Press

Christian Science Monitor

TomDispatch

Salon

Alternet

Now, can you guess who holds the construction contracts?
