Who Won The Iraq War?

I read a fascinating article titled Who Won the Iraq War?. The article basically says that the only winners were large american corporations who got lucrative government contracts. Hundreds of billions of dollars went to these companies to help US defence or to rebuild Iraq. It's no surprise that Halliburton which is infamous for it's ties to the government is the biggest winner.I wonder who the major players of halliburton really are? Maybe Naija is not the only nation with issues of corruption,we just don't hide our own under diplomacy.

Denex,

i don't want to say i will understand when you are too sure that i will not but since u have started answering and analysing, i would want you to tell me the main resources of Dubai or emirates as a whole. tell me how the funds you mentioned above in china and france accrue to them.

then relate that to nigeria dn south africa.

the per capita income which you have made us know from your analysis, how do u relate them to the stolen wealths or loots of abacha who nigeria has declared as the only ex-president that looted our funds.

then relate them to the loots of our 36 or more govs in the last eight years.

Denex, it will be of great interests if you can relate our per capita income to the funds used by obj to service our external debts.

pls relates these issues to the nature of our roads, security, electricty and other basic armenities in the last ten years to date.

then let us know if we are improving or we are going back and each case then tell me if our resources are going dopwn or increasing with our population.

pls i would want to be lectured on the size of dubai and togo and the relative improvements in the two countries.

in your analysis, maybe, u forgot to relate the usa so u can as well do that.

in the face of all these, we have a place for africa and the developed nations where people do not get rich over night just because they are made the councilor of their wards.

please, do not forget to lecture me on the relevance of money laundary in our economy.

finally, my dear denex, i would want you to remind me how nigeria and nigerians are benefiting from the investments of public funds by our leaders in all the countries of the world leaving nigeria in the dark.

Let's look at my recent response I ask you all as @kobojunkie has said at below link:

http://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-86143.0.html#msg1587710

Forget about who won Iraq war! Forget about other countries problem! Let's focus on Nigeria resolved. Soon I will create new thread next few days or weeks when i am free.

Let's look at the following existing thread that had been posted by different NLers to ask how to improve Nigeria better at below:

That comparison was not meant to say Nigeria and Dubai are on the same level or Nigeria is SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE DUBAI. Rather it was to show that We HAVE NO EXCUSE AT ALL FOR REMAINING WHERE WERE HAVE BEEN FOR THE LAST 20 Years . We have more manpower, more resources, more indigenes who can get this work done. And if I remember correctly, it was in response to USPRY1's post up there.

I really don't see any need answering your questions because in doing so, I would have to use some complex analogy which from carefully reading your last post, I doubt if you'd understand.

On the other hand, maybe I should try one.

The population of China is almost 1,300,000,000 (1.3 billion) and earns $10 trillion annually. France has a population of about 60,000,000 (60 million) and earns $2 trillion annually.

The french are 5 times better off than the Chinese in terms of welfare, infrastructure, Education, road network, communications, electricity, healthcare.

The average amount of money accruing to each French citizen annually is 40,000. That is five times more than the 8,000 accruing to the average Chinese. Yet if you remember, we already said the whole of China annually earns 5 times more than France, so how come the french are living 5 times better than the Chinese? Could it be because of the 1.3 billion population?

Well, it's not just population, it is population density. Take the amount of land and resources, then divide by the population or should I say the number of people. That is why a lot of Abiola's children suffer while Fela's children are doing well.

Back to the Iraq War, it hasn't ended yet so we can't really be certain about the results. Things could turn around.

Denex,

since is all about who won, then who and who were in the context? and who was tipped to be the favourites?

and from your point of view, what are the disappointments of the war.

talking about your analysis of nigeria and dubai population wise, what do u have to say about usa, china and india?

what has the population of a country has to do with electricity, good roads, security and money laundary?

i would want to tell u that law courts are there to twist issues and suit special interests otherwise why would criminals appear in the courts with lawyers to defend them.

the whole things bowls down to selfish interests.

if the population of dubai is too small, then what happens to togo, mali, benin and other smaller african countries.

nigeria is the largest country of the world and that justifies the states of our roads, human rights, electrity, security network and the rate of money laundary and selected justice.

that is why obj ruled as a millitary, come back for an interupted eigth year term, seek and failed on a direct third term, and decided to achieve that through self enthrone chairman bot of pdp and then remain the invinscible president of nigeria.

that accounts for adedibu's uncountrollable powers, that makes some govs saints while a few remain high tech criminals. that is why non of the ministers have faced the efcc on grafts issues. that is why most contracts given by obj were declared illegal and nothing was done against that. that is why etteh has refused to step down even with the house on fire.

pls more lessons on the relevance of population of nigeria as a justifiable reason for our backwardness.

Wow! Took y'all just a few minutes to change an Iraqi thread to "Nigeria must develop".

Well, first I must say the Iraqi war was engineered to create contracts for large corporations of the USA. This was made clear when George Bush told Russia and France that since they would not support the war on Iraq, they would not get any re-construction contracts (this was said before the war started).

In general Halliburton won, Tony Blair lost because he didn't have any personal company that would take advantage of the money spinning war. He didn't even know what the war was about till too late.

For those comparing Dubai to Nigeria, make una take am easy. Dubai is just a city perhaps smaller than Abuja with outstanding crude oil resources for it's size an population. Dubai is a city in one of the United Arab Emirates. The United Arab Emirates comprise 7 different former Nation States which later came together. The Population of the UAE is 3.1 million. About the population of Ikeja. So even if they had 5 percent the natural resources of Nigeria, they would fare far, far better.

it is really unfortunate that with the high heaps of lapses and chronic problems facing us as nigerians especially in nigeria, we still find time to find faults in countries 1000% better than us.

everybody is complaining about iraq war without looking back to the origin of the war. how did america first got involved? with iraq annexing kuwait and having other countries in the golf in their lists, treathening to clean up the place with weapon of mass destruction, it came from the arabs themselves inviting america to their aid.

in our odd reasonings, we never cared to ask where in the americans millitary bases throughout these war times- maybe in africa. i am of the opinion that a certain level of victory to kuwait, golf, arab world and middle east as a whole have been achieved with the man of wars(saddam) down. america by all means is the present police of the world and have been doing the job, paying the prizes.

a nigerian man going to south africa is as difficult as going to the moon yet they are not recists. if americans are recists then someone shld be bold enough to tell us who is not.

to discuss corruptions in other countries, one has to first of all, change his nationality from nigeria to something else because ours are not worth discussing.

We dont need microfiinance, we have more than enough money to be the most powerful nation in Africa. those silly toads in power just prefer to salt the money to their private accounts.

And I do not understand that Nigeria has plenty of engineers to make things (economic) improved as Kobejunkie and davidylan had said.

Help me understand this. I have been doing my homework learning deeply about Nigeria culture i am preparing for my business proposal submission with microfinance investment in the quality of electronic power and housing shortage solution for one year and 3 months so far. Other Africa such as Gambia, Ghana, and South Africa already receiving granted microfinance funding on rural electrification system solution for FOUR YEARS where Nigeria HAS NONE!!! (only small projects Nigeria has already done)

Coming 2008 i will come visiting to Nigeria for the purpose of feasiblity study proposal to gather needed materials what Nigeria already have. I already have supporting Nigeria professionals to work with me and my business partner, now my turn to fly to Nigeria real soon.

Used to be ethnically homogenous, Sure it has less than 1/10th of Nigeria's population but considering the resources, we have no excuse as we have over 10 times more than Dubai has in resources. We still have no excuse to be behind dubai in this.

America is fast becoming an evil empire, rivaled only by China. On the plus side (for China) they are yet to be governed by CEO of rich global conglomerates who starts war to feed their insatiable clamour for wealth.

Current US Vice President Dick Chenny was the CEO (major players along with those Republicans) of the Haliburton stealing America taxpayers. Do you know that? Do your homework!!
