After Big Ceremonies Turning Saddam Palace Complex Over To The Iraqis, They Loot The Joint

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

No sooner did we hand over Saddam's palaces than the Iraqi soldiers and commanders looted everything out of the buildings down to the wiring. They imitate us perfectly. After all, this is a looting expedition and nothing more.

From the Washington Post:
On Nov. 22, the top U.S. military and civilian leaders in Iraq handed over Saddam Hussein's most lavish palace compound to the safekeeping and control of the new Iraqi army and government, in a ceremony whose intended symbolism was as impossible to ignore as the military brass band.

"The passing of this facility is a simple ceremony that vividly demonstrates the continuing progress being made by the Iraqi government and their people," said Col. Mark McKnight, commander of 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, who handed the keys to the palaces to the governor of Salahuddin province.

But in the days after American forces and the Iraqi brass band pulled out of the circular palace drive on a bluff overlooking the Tigris River, local officials now say, looters moved in, ripping out doors, air conditioners, ceiling fans and light-switch plates from some of the compound's 136 palaces, leaving little more than plaster and dangling electric wires.
This is a metaphor for the New World Order. Like in Nigeria, we suck up all the oil and we let locals loot whatever they can and of course, we encourage graft, corruption and venality for look at ourselves!

The war has been an excuse for "private contractors" to loot the American taxpayers who are mostly unaware of this due to the looters hiding the costs by getting loans from hostile foreign agents who intend to loot America just as we loot other countries.

This collapse of the social order is a serious problem, isn't it? And it all reminds me of Vietnam where a corrupt, venal American puppet regime casually looted the country while we had to pretend we were all doing this out of the kindness of our hearts when the reverse is the truth.

We are ravening wolves seeking easy prey.
