  The money went from the United States of America, which I call 'the west' ...................

Into projects run by Americans in Iraq, whom I think of as westerners ..................

I don't think the location of the theft is relevant .................


Corruption Perception Index .....................   


Try 'Halliburton Watch  org' to glimpse the top of the iceberg ...................



The US are part of the west, not the other way arround.

To say the US 'is' the west is an insult to Europe.  You are basically saying they don't matter.

No, that's not the point. The point is that the rest of the west is not as "evil" as the US and maybe its puppy the UK.

Well that is what I think when people talk like that.  They act as if Europe does not matter, has no power or any individual voices.  Kind of what you are saying, but truly, it is an insult in my eyes.  At least if I were living in europe, I think I would see it that way.
