Reasons for Iraq invasion

After hunting around the net in my nightly hunts for info and links I came across a video which I analyzed then started researching. The video is the Iraq Conspiracy ( Youtube ). What came out of this was both fascinating and disturbing. I took notes as I watched the video so I could scour the net and do some checking. Here is what came of the odyssey:

Cheney resigned as CEO of Halliburton on July 25, 2000, and put all of his corporate shares into a blind trust. As part of his deferred compensation …

In 2001, Lockheed-Martin had $14 billion in sales of weapons to the U.S. and foreign buyers.

Halliburton Iraq ties more than Cheney said

Monday, June 25, 2001
UNITED NATIONS, June 23 (UPI) — Halliburton Co., the oil company that was headed by Vice President Dick Cheney, signed contracts with Iraq worth $73 million through two subsidiaries while he was at its helm, the Washington Post reported.
http://www.newsmax.com/archives/articles/2001/6/24/80648.shtml

The company reported it generated $404 million of positive free cash flow in the first quarter of 2000. First quarter 2000 cash flow included a payment by the U.S. government regarding a settlement to reimburse the Corporation for certain past remediation costs related to the environmental cleanup of the Burbank, Calif. location. Total debt, net of invested cash, improved by $328 million during the quarter, bringing the net debt to capitalization ratio to 63.3% at the end of March 2000.

The top lobbyist for the 2000 elections was Lockheed Martin at $2.8 million.
In 2001, Lockheed-Martin had $14 billion in sales of weapons to the U.S. and foreign buyers. Moreover, Lockheed Martin recently received a $3.5 billion contract to sell F-16 jet fighters to Poland. As a new member of NATO, Poland, along with Hungary and the Czech Republic, agreed to modernize their military and purchase new weapons. For the Lockheed sale, the U.S. Government loaned Poland $3.8 billion. The expansion of NATO is a vehicle to sell U.S. weapons, and not surprising, the weapons industry is the biggest lobbyist for NATO expansion.

    A “Federal Reserve Note” is not a U.S.A. dollar. In 1973, Public Law 93-110 defined the U.S.A. dollar as consisting of 1/42.2222 fine troy ounces of gold.
