Iraq Excludes U.S. WheatSubmitted by pawnstorm12 on Fri, 11/16/2012 - 20:33
This story is from earlier this year, but I just recently discovered it.
Iraq's Ministry of Trade has placed an order for 50,000 tons of wheat from all origins except the United States and Romania.
No reason was given for excluding the two countries, but purchases can be political and Romania also was engaged in the war in Iraq.
Before Saddam Hussein came into power, Iraq bought only from the United States, and afterwards bought only from Austrailia. (Trade Arabia)
My thoughts on this:
You can sanction 'em, bomb 'em, drone 'em, kill 'em, torture 'em, maime 'em and occupy them all you want, but you can't force them to like you, your ideology or to even buy from you.
The shame of it is, all my aforementioned actions have OUR names on them - whether philosophically we support these actions or not.
As American taxpayers, WE SUPPORT THESE KILLINGS because our rotted politicians who approve it, REPRESENT us.
Bush, Cheney, Rove, Rumsfeld, Wolfiwitz, Bremer, McCain, LIEberman, Graham, Santorum, Bachmann, Ryan, Hannity, Levin, Limbaugh, Medved, Beck et al. will all burn in hell.
