A very interesting (if long) article by Naomi Klein on the shock 'n awe economic policy hatched by the Hawks in Iraq before things started to get, well, a little violent: Baghdad Year Zero

It makes the fuddled interim/transitional debate over a workable constitution stark and clear, and why any association with the Bremer-based yankee contracts is so dangerous for Iraqis.

Choice quote, theme:
The Bush Administration did have a plan for what it would do after the war; put simply, it was to lay out as much honey [reconstruction contracts, no taxes/tariffs] as possible, then sit back and wait for the flies.

The Financial Times has declared Iraq “the most dangerous place in the world in which to do business.” It’s quite an accomplishment: in trying to design the best place in the world to do business, the neocons have managed to create the worst, the most eloquent indictment yet of the guiding logic behind deregulated free markets.
