Iraq-o-mat: Cleaning Dollars for Corporations

05-05-2005 08:23

Corporations profiting from Iraq
Much of the post-war corporate activity in Iraq has come under heavy criticism from many different fronts. There are accusations of corruption, bribery and nepotism as well as simple incompetence - the jobs just aren't getting done... So what is all the `reconstruction' activity in Iraq really about?

02-05-2005 15:09

Castle of Marchant et d'Ansembourg noble family
The Dutch ambassador to the UK, Count Jan de Marchant et d'Ansembourg, said he hoped that Tony Blair would win the British elections of 5 May. That, he said on Dutch NOS TV, would better for Dutch relations to George W. Bush's USA.
