Looting the Booty

President Bush recently posed the question, "Do we have the confidence to do in the Middle East what our fathers and grandfathers accomplished in Europe and Asia?"

Now me, being a very literal kind of guy, put the question into motion: what exactly was it that George's father and grandfather accomplished? Being the savvy businessmen the Bush's are known to be, Prescott Bush and George Herbert Walker Bush both busied themselves with administering ill-gotten Nazi monies during and following WW II--that is, until forced to halt these activities by the U.S, government
.

Projecting that same business ethos into today's Middle East, President Bush is probably referring to enabling foreign subsidiaries of Haliburton to fulfill contracts in Iran and make money from all sides, with profits accruing to the Bush family and cronies.

Is this what your grandfather accomplished during the war? Mine was mining coal for the war effort.
