Corporate Profits From The War In Iraq  

Can you imagine that some people are cashing in on the outcomes of the war? The people who are benefiting the most are the war contractors and the military contractors. The Pentagon has a $400 billion budget for the military and a further $40 billion as homeland security budget.

Obviously there is a lot of money in there for contractors and that explains the reason why people like contractors do not want the war in Iraq to end. This budget is for two wars being fought in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Pentagon has several contractors like Lockheed Martin, Bechtel and Halliburton who are the top contractors and mint a lot of money. The problem with the United States is that it outsources even the core functionalities to agents and contractors that everything becomes a profit making opportunity. Whenever there is an opportunity to make money or swindle it for one’s own selfish motives, there will be a certain amount of corruption and many happenings pertaining to Iraq are being fabricated to keep the machinery going. The war need not be so gruesome and there are several innocent lives that are being put to stake in that country.

The Pentagon’s top there contractors are Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Northrop Grumman. These three companies alone share a contract worth $50 billion. The war budget for one company in this case is much higher then the entire country’s budget put together for a welfare program. That is how much a cause or destruction costs and by now the United States could have built a hundred World Trade Centers instead of putting all their money into fighting the war in Iraq.
