Blowback

I wonder if the next scandal to hit the papers will be that the U.S. Government/Bush Administration is secretly funding and arming every faction of the Iraqi "insurgents," to maintain the violence there as a pretext for refusing to pull the troops out. One always comes back to the question: who benefits from the ongoing violence? Not the Iraqi people; as Chomsky pointed out, they voted into power groups that would not be compliant puppet regimes, just as the Palestinians and many other people have in recent years. The beneficiaries of continued violence and continued American occupation are U.S. military contractors, and those who believe there is still some possibility of gaining American control over Middle Eastern oil.
