by Antonia JuhaszThe Los Angeles Times
April 13th, 2005
In the first U.S. invasion of Iraq, the electricity grid was specifically targeted for destruction. Afterward, the Iraqis rebuilt the system in just three months. After the second invasion, George W. Bush had U.S. companies do the rebuilding. Two years later, the system is not even up to prewar levels.

January 27th, 2005

A Nice Little War to Fill the Coffers
by Antonia JuhaszThe Los Angeles Times
October 14th, 2004
President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney are correct when they say things are not all bad in Iraq. It just depends on your perspective. Although the military campaign is in chaos, the economic campaign is moving along quite nicely, at least for U.S. corporations and the Republican Party.

The U.S. occupation of Iraq officially ended on June 28, 2004, in a secret ceremony in Baghdad. Officially, "full sovereignty" was handed from the Americans to the Iraqi Interim Government. But it was clear from the start that this was sovereignty in name, not in deed.

Officially, the U.S. occupation of Iraq ended on June 28, 2004. But in reality, the United States is still in charge: Not only do 138,000 troops remain to control the streets, but the "100 Orders" of L. Paul Bremer III remain to control the economy.

June 16th, 2004
On June 30, the Bush administration officially hands over power in Iraq to the newly minted Iraqi Interim Government. Whether this is a hand-over in substance, not just in name, will determine if July 1 marks the beginning of increased stability and independence for Iraq, or more suffering and subservience to this administration’s interests.

The Economic Colonization of Iraq: Illegal and Immoral.
by Antonia JuhaszTestimony to the World Tribunal on Iraq
May 8th, 2004
The Bush Administration is using the military invasion and occupation of Iraq to advance a corporate globalization agenda that is illegal under international law, has not been chosen by the Iraqi people and may ultimately prove to be even more devastating than twelve years of economic sanctions, two U.S.-led wars and one occupation. The Administration’s ultimate goal is to take the agenda to the entire region.

Military action may have ended, but corporate invasion has taken over
by Antonia JuhaszProgressive Media Project
May 19th, 2003
The U.S. corporate invasion of Iraq may do more damage to the Iraqi people than the war itself. The Bush administration is using the military invasion to advance a corporate globalization agenda that has not been chosen by the people of Iraq. What's more, that agenda is unlikely to meet the desperate humanitarian crisis that exists after two U.S.-led wars and 12 years of economic sanctions.
