Ten years later...........


I think this story by Chris Hedges speaks to the profound sadness about where we find ourselves today.  The war criminals who orchestrated the immoral, illegal war continue to live the high lives.  Dead eye dark side dick got the best healthcare money can buy and a heart.  Their children are seen bringing commentary, as if they have qualifications.  The price we are going to end up paying in blood and treasure is on our descendants credit cards.  And the people who got to host this horror are paying and will pay forever.  Depleted (not) uranium = genocide.
I used to follow River on her blog, Baghdad Burning, to hear what was happening in her country.  The last post was October 22, 2007 as she started her life as a refugee in Syria.  I wonder where she is now.

One of First Iraq Veterans to Publicly Oppose War Will Die for Our Sins
Monday, 11 March 2013 09:44By Chris HedgesTruthdig | Op-Ed
........I think this Young will die for our sins. He will die for a war that should never have been fought. He will die for the lies of politicians. He will die for war profiteers. He will die for thecareers of generals. He will die forey a cheerleader press. He will die for a complacent public that made war possible. He bore all this upon his body. He was crucified. And there are hundreds of thousands of other crucified bodies like his in Baghdad and Kandahar and Peshawar and Walter Reed medical center. Mangled bodies and corpses, broken dreams, unending grief, betrayal, corporate profit, these are the true products of war. Tomas Young is the face of war they do not want you to see.

Secretary of State Candidate Has a Major Financial Stake in Canadian Tar Sands
 BY SCOTT DODD

 BUSINESS & POLITICS

 Susan Rice, the candidate believed to be favored by President Obama to become the next Secretary of State, holds significant investments in more than a dozen Canadian oil companies and banks that would stand to benefit from expansion of the North American tar sands industry and construction of the proposed $7 billion Keystone XL pipeline. If confirmed by the Senate, one of Rice’s first duties likely would be consideration, and potentially approval, of the controversial mega-project. Rice's financial holdings could raise questions about her status as a neutral decision maker. The current U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Rice owns stock valued between $300,000 and $600,000 in TransCanada, the company seeking a federal permit to transport tar sands crude 1,700 miles to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast, crossing fragile Midwest ecosystems and the largest freshwater aquifer in North America. Beyond that, according to financial disclosure reports, about a third of Rice’s personal net worth is tied up in oil producers, pipeline operators, and related energy industries north of the 49th parallel -- including companies with poor environmental and safety records on both U.S. and Canadian soil. Rice and her husband own at least $1.25 million worth of stock in four of Canada’s eight leading oil producers, as ranked by Forbes magazine. That includes Enbridge, which spilled more than a million gallons of toxic bitumen into Michigan’s Kalamazoo River in 2010 -- the largest inland oil spill in U.S. history.    full article
