Iraq to Iran: The Empire Attacks

Program #RITS003. Recorded in Olympia, WA on February 18, 2005.

Audio sample:

Speculation is running rampant on what country will be the target of the next U.S. attack. Iran ranks high. It was an original member of the president's "axis of evil." Before going to Baghdad, the neocons used to say, "Real men go to Teheran." Then there's Syria of course. North Korea? Well maybe not. They can fight back and do real damage. Iran, like Iraq, has lots of oil. That makes it a tempting target. Is oil a profit making business? ExxonMobil's net profit for 2004 topped $25 billion. So perhaps coming soon to a theatre near you: another exciting installment of, "The March of Freedom." Halliburton, Bechtel, and LockheedMartin can't wait. They'll have front row seats.
