U.S. Imperialism Targets Iraq's Public Treasury

November 20, 2014

According to U.S. officials, the U.S.-Iraq alliance is continuing to lose the war against its self-proclaimed enemies in Iraq. 

As a result the Obama administration is requesting that Congress approve $1.6 billion dollars to set up an Iraq “Train-and-Equip” fund. 

The U.S. Department of Defense is also planning to exact hundreds of millions of dollars in tribute from the Iraqi people in exchange for U.S. “protection.”

According to a November 13 statement by U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, “Iraq and coalition partners” must provide “at least $600 million of their own contributions” to the fund, “because the Iraqi government must invest in its own security and its own future.”
