Attacks on corporations have disrupted (see Halliburton Targeting for
more on this strategy) the pace and scale of reconstruction in Iraq.
The costs of private security have added 25-35% reconstruction
contracts. A second category of costs is market disruption.
Given these costs, it is obvious why the US is running out of money for reconstruction.
Imagine how many hospitals and schools could be built in the US for
what they’re spending in Iraq. Let’s see, first they blow shit up, then
they “rebuild” it., with huge cost overruns the whole way. Someone is
getting rich off this and it sure isn’t the US public.
