The Jackal's Feast Goes On
by Chris Floyd
The second salient point is the fact that most of this "overhead" is not going toward security costs. Apologists for the Dear Leader's war crime have been quick to answer any criticism of the woeful dearth of "reconstruction" – and the fact that the Iraqi people now have lower levels of electricity, fuel, health care, sanitation, etc. than before the invasion – by blaming the colossal waste and fraud on the insurgents. But the Inspector General – appointed by the Bush Administration itself – tells us that the war-crime apologists are dead wrong:
The IG's report is devastating: but again, all this waste was built into the system from the start. Halliburton and the other swill-swallowers were given "cost-plus" contracts (many of them simply handed out like Halloween candy, without any of that silly-billy nonsense about competitive bidding). This means that they are guaranteed a certain set profit, no matter how far their costs balloon. There is simply no incentive for them to even try to bring a project in at cost – or indeed, to even complete it at all. There's just too much money to be made by running up the meter, throwing away material and buying it again, cutting lucrative side deals with suppliers (and re-suppliers), mercenaries, local officials, etc.
The following is quoted from "The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben"
by Joseph Borkin
“Conditions were such that sickness was a pervasive fact of life among the inhabitants of Monowitz. The hospital wards built by I.G. were so inadequate that even the S.S. suggested additional wards be built. I.G. refused because of the cost.”

all this waste was built into the system from the start.
Therefore, and in pursuance of the proviso above recited, I. George Washington, President of the United States, do hereby command all persons, being insurgents, as aforesaid, and all others whom it may concern, on or before the 1st day of September next to disperse and retire peaceably to their respective abodes.

How to begin?
For more than six hundred years --- that is, since Magna Carta, in 1215 --- there has been no clearer principle of English or American constitutional law, than that, in criminal cases, it is not only the right and duty of juries to judge what are the facts, what is the law, and what was the moral intent of the accused; but that it is also their right, and their primary and paramount duty, to judge of the justice of the law, and to hold all laws invalid, that are, in their opinion, unjust or oppressive, and all persons guiltless in violating, or resisting the execution of, such laws.
Please find in the above movie the case where ONE individual person exercised the power to free one other individual from the burden of income tax.
That is INDEPENDENT POWER. It is the SPIRIT OF LIBERTY that is so fatal to those who TORTURE, MASS MURDER, and EXPLOIT the POWER of FALSEHOOD.
If that SPIRIT is current, a current flowing in this country and exported to the rest of the world, then, no power on earth can stop it - none whatsoever and certainly not the power behind the curtain where the naked emperor lies in his own degrading filth.
