Democracy? National Security? No, You Fools, for Hillary, the Iraq War Was All About the Money

“It’s time for the United States to start thinking of Iraq as a business opportunity.” – Hillary Clinton, 2011

There are apparently some interesting items coming out of Hillary Clinton’s released cache of e-mails.

And they seem to strengthen the notion that, after all, the Iraq War was not primarily fought for noble reasons such as ‘protecting national security’ or ‘promoting democracy.’ While boiling this down to the anti-war slogan ‘No Blood for Oil’ might simplify things a tad bid, this article by David Sirota points out in detail how Corporate America saw it as a way to get richer.

And guess who positioned  herself as a champion of those large corporations in Iraq, even a year before publicly declaring the Iraq War as “a mistake?” — Hillary Rodham Clinton.

American voters might want to take note in the upcoming election.
