Executive Order 13315: The Official Looting of Iraq

04-09-2003 19:51

Executive order 13315, which Bush signed on 8/28/03, was published in the Federal Register on 9/3/03. It expands upon executive order 13303, and appears to be an asset grab under the guise of funding the Iraqi reconstruction, placing Iraq's state assets under control of the U.S. Treasury: in effect, the official looting of Iraq. Very convenient for a government which seeks to hand over control of Iraq to UN peacekeepers. This executive order has had zero corporate media coverage as of today.

Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi of Burma is on hunger strike; she has been in the cruel prisons of the Burmese military since May 30, 2003. All the evil generals in Burma, the brutes are attacking her and as we know well that she got a few stitches in her head hit and beaten by the hired thugs of a Burmese general. Please let us unite to save her or get her out of the danger zone; I believe that was what Dr.Michael Aris, the Englishman husband of Daw Suu Kyi would say in this battle of good and evil in a midnight of the blemished and broken Burmese soul.
