"What economic problems?" was the exclamation of John McCain, a man educated in the war colleges, and who was benefiting from the prosperity of the military oil banking complex that was plundering America as it said it was making us all free.
Within a short time the administration of Bush II was telling the congress our economy was going to completely collapse if big banks did not get billions immediately.
Now the World Bank is saying our economic power is declining, as if that was wisdom instead of simply the obvious.
Why the plunder is taking place in the name of patriotism is the only mystery.
