Oil-for-Food Scam - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Well, now we know why France, Germany and Russian were so eager to defend Saddam and Iraq - they were raking in millions by profiting from starving the Iraqi people!!! And lest anyone think Canada just hates us for no good reason, read the report. Those countries are in good company with the like of Syria and China with the kickbacks.

Here's the full report, released Thursday.

http://www.foxnews.com/projects/pdf/fin ... report.pdf

So, Siemens, obviously a huge German company, is listed as one of the top offenders. Oh, and from which country does DaimlerChrystler, another major offender, hearken? You got it, Germany.

Of friendly neighbors to the north make the top 10 list, too. Maloney Industries, an oil equipment company, profited handsomely. I wonder if the Canadian minister wench that stomped on a Bush doll had her hands in it? We will find out.

Russian Engineering Company really gives the word "engineeirng" a bad name in light of the report of its crooked dealings. Were they the ones that sold Saddam the devices that were supposed to block our GPS signals so the smart bombs and cruise missiles would reverse course and attack their launchers? They failed miserably. The old boy Putin could not have been pleased.

Sinochem (China) and SES (Syria) major players. No surprise.

Say, what is this name Marc Rich plastered all over the report? Hmmmm...name rings a bell. Oh yeah, that's the guy Clinton pardoned on his last day in office. Poor Mr. Rich, who's buxom wife Bill was friendly with, had been run out of the country for illicit dealings. Probably just a coincidence, right?

Seems Sweden loved taking food and medicine from the Iraqi people, too, with both Volvo (car of choice of the American liberal yuppies) and Atlas Copco Airpower.

Big-mouth George Galloway is up to his America-hating eyeballs in the scandal. He'll do jail time for sure. Gotta laugh.

France chose to involve itself heavily on the management and logistics side rather than the trading of material goods (other than, of course, the stockpiles of fresh French weapons found in the bunkers during the convoy to Baghdad).

I anxiously await the dissection and scrutiny of the report whereby we will obtain lots of names of politicians and business people directly involved. Might we find that those who objected the loudest to the Iraq war had the most to loose? Methinks so.

Bring it on.
