The Fascist State reigns supreme.
The Daily Mail reports:
Tony Blair waged an extraordinary two-year battle to keep secret a lucrative deal with a multinational oil giant which has extensive interests in Iraq.
The former Prime Minister tried to keep the public in the dark over his dealings with South Korean oil firm UI Energy Corporation.
Mr Blair – who has made at least £20million since leaving Downing Street in June 2007 – also went to great efforts to keep hidden a £1million deal advising the ruling royal family in Iraq’s neighbour Kuwait.
In an unprecedented move, he persuaded the committee which vets the jobs of former ministers to keep details of both deals from the public for 20 months, claiming it was commercially sensitive. The deals emerged yesterday when the Advisory Committee on Business Appointments finally lost patience with Mr Blair and decided to ignore his objections and publish the details…
The full extent of his income is cloaked in secrecy because he has constructed a complex web of shadowy companies and partnerships which let him avoid publishing full accounts detailing all the money from his commercial ventures.
Critics also point out that a large proportion of his earnings comes from patrons in America and the Middle East – a clear benefit from forging a close alliance with George Bush during his invasion of Iraq.
Of course we all know the real reasons behind our invasion of Iraq.
Most poignantly, Saddam was getting ready to sell his oil in Euros – a big no no. The monied elite are threatened enough by Iran’s move to sell oil outside the dollar. They could not stand idle and risk having the entire middle east move to sell outside the dollar.
You see, oil is what backs the dollar today. We force countries to pay for oil in dollars. This means they must buy our debt if they want to acquire oil. This purchasing of our debt is what keeps our domestic inflation low and allows our criminal government to preform its spending sprees by simply printing up treasury bills.
When countries sell oil outside of the dollar, it lowers the demand for dollars, and hence undermines our currency. This is why we unleash the almighty furry of the US military against any nation that does this.
Of course, the criminal elite also profit enormously from these wars, as is evidenced by Blair’s war booty coming to light. However the monied oil interests aren’t the only ones massively profiting from the illegal wars America is engaging in.
The war profiteers on Wall Street and the military industrial complex are also making out like bandits. The kick backs and contracts are enormous. Billions upon billions each year is funneled into the pockets of criminal bankers and death merchants.
America + UK = The New Anglo-European Empire
