Slugs and maggots, the war-mongers are!! Even the Marshall of Baghdad is a vampire!

Iraq bidder's apartheid past - "Fluor Corporation, the US building firm tipped to land a massive reconstruction deal in postwar Iraq, is facing a multibillion-dollar lawsuit claiming that it exploited and brutalised black workers in apartheid-era South Africa."
[...]
Fluor denies all the allegations. Meanwhile, it has emerged that Jay Garner, the retired US general who will oversee Iraqi reconstruction, is facing legal action over his activities while president of a defence company, SY Technology (now SY Coleman). [aren't they the folks who produce the Patriot Missile System? h_b]
Lawyers acting for rival DESE Research claim Garner lent his weight to senior officials at the Space and Missile Defence Command, where he previously worked, to deny DESE a research contract on a system for attacking enemy satellites. DESE's lawyer, Howell Riggs, also claims that Garner received a 'payoff' from successors at the defence command in the form of another lucrative contract."
