    5The WAR about pawns in ANOTHER political game.
    By Tony C.
    This is a controversial view into the IRAQ WAR.

    IRAQ for SALE: The War Profiteers is a 2006 documentary film made by Robert Greenwald. Produced while the Iraq War was in full swing, the film deals with the alleged war profiteering and negligence of private contractors and consultants who went to Iraq as part of the US war effort.

    Specifically, the film claims four major contractors - Blackwater, K.B.R.-Halliburton, CACI and Titan - were over-billing the U.S. government and doing substandard work while endangering the lives of American soldiers, Iraqi civilians, and their own employees. These corporations were tasked with “virtually everything except the actual killing,”including food, laundry, housing, security, intelligence gathering and interrogation.

    I really enjoyed the film from a both a patriotic and political standpoint. Check it out...it's worth 90 minutes.

    5Good Flick. No wonder the Pentagon wants to get ...
    By Jon Becker
    America must reality that EVEN WAR is part of the FREE MARKET ECONOMY. Kellog, Brand & Root (KBR), based in HOUSTON TX grossed about $39.5 billion dollars on a sole source, sole supplier contract, from the Pentagon. The Bush-Cheney duo of Texas traitors turns war into a profit. The Pentagon paid AFGHAN TRIBES to hunt down bin laden in the TORA BORA caves and they led bin laden slip away into Pakistan. The way to keep the 'Forever War' going and KEEP the war profits rolling into Texas is to allow the Terrorists to Get Away! Darling Bush was reading Bible quotes sent with the Daily war reports and simultaneously funneling BILLIONS into Texas. $100 charged for a bag of laundry washed in filthy water. Eric Prince, the Catholic Contractor make BILLIONS in no bid, sole source contracts. Walking in the footsteps of Texas gods can make a person healthy, wealthy and fat. Good Flick. No wonder the Pentagon wants to get Greenwald.

    5On Target
    By Bill McLean
    Clear, convincing and supported by evidence, "Iraq For Sale" is well organized and well presented.

    I think most Americans have already heard a lot of the information presented and have accepted the national news reports as true. This film exposes the enormity of the profiteering and outright fraud associated with the military/industrial complex. Of course this is not new. The same was done during the Viet Nam war. Where there is war there is profiteering for the few and calamity for the many.

    I hope something can be done to stop this evil process. I have heard that other countries, such as China and Russia, are upgrading their forces to protect themselves from expected United States aggression. Much of the world thinks America is planning to rule over the whole earth using the same excuse as did the ancient Roman Empire (PAX ROMANA or Roman Peace). This means peace by destroying all opposition.

    What a waste of human resources - even if another world war does not follow as a result.
