After the end of the war in Iraq, where thousands of Americans died, hundreds of thousands were injured and $9 billion in cash — shipped on wooden pallets — literally disappeared.
China is now the No. 1 purchaser of Iraq’s oil. According to former Vice President Dick Cheney, Iraq was supposed to pay for the war with oil. How did this happen? Maybe Halliburton knows.
China simply spent $2 billion to rebuild Iraq’s infrastructure. No war, no dead soldiers, no wounded, no billions of dollars lost.
Ironically, China opposed the liberation of Iraq and tried to arm Saddam Hussein’s regime. I do not think this is what Duh-bya meant by “mission accomplished.”
It must be President Barack Obama’s fault.
