Biden The NeoCon, Or Why Biden Wanted So Much To Destroy Iraq

November 3, 2020

In 1998, Biden, HIGHEST RANKING DEMOCRAT on US Senate Foreign Relations, told Ritter that no matter how thorough the inspections, the only way to eliminate the threat was to remove Saddam Hussein. 

The primary policy is to keep sanctions in place to deny Saddam the billions of dollars that would allow him to really crank up his program, which neither you nor I believe he’s ever going to abandon as long as he’s in place,” Biden said, characterizing former President Bill Clinton’s administration’s policy. 

You and I believe, and many of us believe here, as long as Saddam is at the helm, there is no reasonable prospect you or any other inspector is ever going to be able to guarantee that we have rooted out, root and branch, the entirety of Saddam’s program relative to weapons of mass destruction. You and I both know, and all of us here really know, and it’s a thing we have to face, that the only way, the only way we’re going to get rid of Saddam Hussein is we’re going to end up having to start it alone — start it alone — and it’s going to require guys like you in uniform to be back on foot in the desert taking this son of a — taking Saddam down,” Biden said. “You know it and I know it.”

Please try not to confuse realism and cynicism. It is not because we are treated like dogs (cynicism) that we should not be realistic about it. 

The Washington Post is immensely biased for GDP (Global Deep Plutocracy). Bloomberg is beyond biased, he spent 50 million dollars in Florida to destroy Trump, and such Pluto intervention in supposedly People-Power (Demos-Kratia) elections should be UNLAWFUL. If nothing else, it violates ISEGORIA, a fundament of Demoskratia.

Bloomberg is a NEOCON. Here is Bloomberg, 2003:

Why War with Iraq Is Not about the Oil, March 16, 2003, 9:00 PM PST, by Gary S. Becker

A number of leaders of the antiwar movement have been loudly proclaiming that a war with Iraq would be all about America’s desire to gain control of oil supplies there and elsewhere in the Middle East. In a recent BusinessWeek story, a German Green Party opponent of war was quoted as saying: “Saddam is no saint, but to me the whole thing smells of…oil.” This economic argument, popular in Europe, makes little sense. If oil were the driving force behind the Bush Administration’s hard line on Iraq, avoiding war would be the most appropriate policy.

***

This sort of NEOCON propaganda ended killing many millions throughout the Middle East, AS INTENDED. The true aim of Biden and Bush was to destroy the Middle East in general, and Iraq in particular… to stop Iraqi oil production for many years to come, and not just to profit Wall Street compliant Saudi Arabia… 

The aim of the destruction of Iraq, by Biden-Bush, as I explained, was to LIFT the price of oil, so that WALL STREET and US OIL MEN could make US FRACKING profitable, a policy implemented by Obama-Biden. Biden’s father was one of the highest executives in the US biggest oil company.
