10. Did the Bible say anything to Bush
about our controlling and sucking every drop of oil wealth out of Iraq and making sure Big American Oil got "their share" and Halliburton and other well-connected crony corporations got all the sweet, no-bid, unsupervised infrastructure contracts? I don't dispute for a minute Bush's religious fervor/fanaticism (which horrifies me) but on another level, and despite real or what often appeared like chaos on the ground, they went about raping Iraq very methodically and with what looks to all the world like a well-organized, efficient business plan.
