Iraq Index: Measures of Reconstruction and Security
Note of warning...
I can't quite figure out how such an index can be truly non-partisan if it based on data from a pretty partisan source like the US government... which hardly has an unblemished record on these things.
Oh... great... This has got to be one of the worst ideas ever.
Another propaganda brick in the wall
Yeh, thats a shocker. Its like having Kissinger look into 911 (what a joke!)
I'd say this sort of index will more than likely be used by the companies rebuilding Iraq to falsely inflate their stock prices (not that they need any "manufactured" dressing-up for the normal capatilistic investor. The smart investor invests in the machines of war, after all its very profitable. What a scam. First destoy a nation (profiting from weapons used), then rebuild it (profit from the reconstruction).
Its all so pathetic I can't believe anybody would believe a SINGLE WORD the US administration dribbles.
Poop. This is poop.
Seriously, American info has been lousy throughout, how can any system based on it be unbiased?
