"The fact is that not everyone is losing in Iraq. Indeed, while the Bush administration's wars of choice have brought unnecessary death, destruction, and disaster to millions, including many from the Unites States, they have also brought fortunes and prosperity to war profiteers. At the heart of the reluctance to withdraw from Iraq lies the profiteers' unwillingness to give up further fortunes and spoils of war."
Possibly the biggest indignity of the profit being made from the war is that many of the people profiting are W's close buddies. Haliburton has made something like 10 billion off the war. Makes you wonder if Cheney is going to be ok when he leaves office. Other things that could benefit might be altenative fuel. I have a friend that work athe Renewable Energy Lab in Golden and she claims if they received one month of war spending they could probably find an efficient way of producing an alternative fuel source. Definitely makes you wonder why we are there. Profit, Oil, or WMD.
