Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins
Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

jackel5, August 4, 2006

I believe John Perkins story needed to be told not to cleanse himself for the wrongs he performed as an EHM, but for the people of this country to read and understand that the US fights different kinds of wars for economic advantages, power, money and safety of the ?almost? free markets we as Americans enjoy. The price to all of us is our own personal safety and economic stability. (911) It seems that the US is hell bent on always having the unfair advantage, along with the G8 countries to rape, use and abuse less fortunate countries to gain petrol dollars and ensure the health of big oil in this country. The rich get richer and the poor get killed fighting for these petrol dollars. Lets not forget the huge contracts the corporate players get from the US?..and in return profits going for political parties in the form of campaign contributions. Bush, Cheney, Shultz now talk about the axis of evil??There?s more that John can?t tell you?
