''Corporations are the main victors in Iraq''
"Paul Bremer, the U.S. administrator of the Iraqi occupation,
made that clear back in July when he declared that Iraq
needs to accept foreign investment and privatization of its oil

the most important economic decisions
regarding the future of Iraqis
have been decided
for them. "
