I think we might have a winner, even though this is from the January 1 edition of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:
Are you one of the few who think there will not be an invasion of Iraq? Think of this scenario:
1. "W" sets up his "oil czar" after the takeover.
2. The czar issues "consulting" contracts to many privately held foreign corporations. The stock of these corporations is solely owned by business friends of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. The money paid to corporations as a result of these contracts goes into foreign bank accounts that will never see the light of day in the United States. This amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars.
The czar issues engineering and service contracts to "friendly" American companies. These contracts amount to billions of dollars. A portion of the proceeds will be used to fund Republican election campaigns well into the future.
Bush is assured the win in 2004 while brother Jeb is set up to win in 2008 and 2012. This ensures the Bush dynasty through 2016. There will be no election that Republicans can't buy.
Should there be any recalcitrant in foreign governments, such as in Russia or Great Britain, he could be cut in for small "consulting" contracts just to grease the wheels.
All this could happen and America would never know what had transpired, except for a privileged few.
Can you say "barking moonbat"? The Seattle area is filled with morons, left-wing paranoiac morons.
