Call me cynical if you like but I wonder if I am the only one to put these two headlines together- Bush approves arms sales to Iraq and US ‘war on terrorism’ faces $US12b cost blow-out. In the tradition of Slashdot business plans we have:
- create fictitious reason to invade country
- sell them arms to quell the mess you created
Oooops looks like this time the Underpants Gnomes have a business plan after all. I concede, it wasn’t all about the oil after all.
