“My point is that it's incorrect to say that the Iraq policy isn't working. It is working. It is doing what they want. They have got control of the oil and they are exporting it, and they have stripped a government that was 90% state owned and they are privatizing it. ...

ALTHOUGH THIS SPEECH WAS GIVEN IN 2002, IT OVERFLOWS WITH INFORMATION SUPPRESSED IN THE WESTERN WORLD. IN THIS CASE, MEET THE REAL CAUSE OF THE ATTACK ON IRAQ AND THE NATURE OF THE RELATIONSHIPS OF THE CHARACTERS INVOLVED WHO SENT OUR YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN OFF TO DIE OR PARTICIPATE IN AN UNNECESSARY GENOCIDE. LEARN WHAT MAKES A LEADER A "DICTATOR" IN THE EYES OF THE AMERICAN RULING CLASS.
THIS IS BEAUTIFULLY EXPLAINED AROUND 22:00 FOR SEVERAL MINUTES AS HE DISCUSSES "SUBVERSIVE" GOVERNMENTS. VERY CRUCIAL INFORMATION CONSIDERING THAT THE RUMBLE IS THAT VENEZUELA UNDER CHAVEZ IS FALLING UNDER THE CROSSHAIRS.
AS ALWAYS, PARENTI DELIVERS.
