Reconstructing Iraq Part II

With all the difficulties that Iraq faces with it’s reconstruction don’t
look to the corporate media to give us any significant analysis. The good
folks at Foreign Policy in Focus have just published a very detailed look
at what Iraq can expect and what role the US might play. Local news
agencies are gushing over the deployment of MSU president McPherson to
Iraq where he is being charged with the economic reconstruction of Iraq. Thank
goodness student groups at MSU have something to say about the “integrity”
of MR. McPherson. On the heals of Bush’s visit to Dearborn, where he made
assurances that the US would not occupy Iraq, Jane’s Defense weekly
reported that both the US & the UK are making plans for permanent military
bases.
