Iraq for sale

Contracting by USAID For Reconstruction of Iraq:

...for capital construction including bridge, road and port rehabilitation and repair; seaport administration; airport administration; public health; primary and secondary education; local governance; theater logistical support and personnel support.
USAID chose to limit competition -- in full compliance with the FAR -- for these Iraq reconstruction contracts to certain U.S. companies...

So it wasn't a war after all - it was a hostile takeover by a rival corporation. The similarities are quite striking, don't you think?

(Apologies to anyone who lost a family member or friend in the war. Thanks to Syksy for the link.)
