Unless, of course, such an attack on the WTC and Mid East war would fit
into an overall Chinese containment policy.
We've known that for many years that US imperialists have advocated an
invasion of Iraq and a full takeover of Middle Eastern and central Asian oil
resources as a way to control the world's economic bloodline. Such control
would certainly help to make the energy-starved Chinese dance to Washington's
With that in mind, and with the neo-cons admission that the US people would
not support such a military campaign without some sort of "new Pearl Harbor",
the attack on the WTC fits in rather nicely.
"Robert Eaton, co-chairman of my employer, DaimlerChrysler, took home $69
million in total compensation last year. It would take an employee earning
$50,000 per year 1,380 years to make that amount. Assuming Mr. Eaton works 60
hours per week, he earns $50,000 in just two and a half hours. Sound absurd?
