Bush Punishes “anti war” countries by denying contracts

The Pentagon will bar companies from France, Germany, Russia and other countries that opposed the war in Iraq from bidding on $18.6 billion in prime contracts for reconstruction of the country, according to a memo released yesterday.”
Of course, it’s okay that we’re asking these countries to send soldiers to die in Iraq, but they don’t get any money from it… only American companies. But that’s hardly surprising, since we went to war specifically to give these American companies money, not to “free the Iraqis” or to “rid the world of Saddam Hussein” or to “find weapons of mass destruction” or, wait what was the original reason we went to war? Oh, yeah… to “prevent terrorist activity.”
