ABSTRACT
The article reports that it will be 18 months ago this election eve since the U.S. President George W. Bush, on May 1, 2003, donned a flight jacket, landed on the carrier Abraham Lincoln and before a "Mission Accomplished" banner announced the end of major combat in Iraq. As Bush spoke, gunfire ominously sounded in the streets of Iraq and the news was bad. After all, Bush insisted, former President of Iraq Saddam Hussein is in prison, the government is preparing for elections, democracy is trumping terrorism and he has Hussein's pistol as a trophy. Former U.S. administrator for Iraq, Paul Bremer, ruled that the U.S. business profits do not have to be invested in Iraq or its recovery, so these corporations increasingly donate to the party that rewards them.
