Review :: War and Militarism
Missing 500.000 American weapons were actually never shipped to Iraq?
31 Oct 2006
Instead of the official allegation that those weapons went "missing" in Iraq - maybe a better explanation is that the weapons were "never" shipped to Iraq in the first place!
The mystery of where the approximately 500.000 missing American weapons in Iraq went may not be that great a puzzle? Considering that this large an amount of weapons was worth perhaps $200 Billion and probably more - there were lots of vested interests who would want to get their dirty hands on that kind of money.

Instead of the official allegation that those weapons went "missing" in Iraq - maybe a better explanation is that the weapons were "never" shipped to Iraq in the first place! This would not be the first time that American weapons manufacturers/suppliers "billed" the US Military for goods it failed to deliver!

This would be the perfect con and fraud by a group of conspirators in the US Govt/Pentagon and their friends in the arms industries to charge the American tax-payers a couple of hundred billion dollars for weapons they never delivered to Iraq and may not even have manufactured in the first place? Then to blame the insurgents and/or terorists in Iraq for the "theft" of this billion dollar booty would just be the icing on their greedy cake! Not only that but because those 500.000 weapons are missing and are now being summarily written off - the US Govt.will now no doubt "re-order" another billion dollar arms shipment to replace the "alledged" misssing one - so these rich crooks are getting paid coming and going! Its pure genius!
