D.C.-- Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) introduced
a bill into Congress today that would give the families of
American soldiers killed in the Iraq invasion and occupation
shares in companies such as Halliburton and Bechtel. The bill
would also use corporate profits to pay the healthcare costs
of wounded soldiers, including those expected to develop diseases
later due to exposure to depleted uranium rounds used by the
profits will be made in the rebuilding of Iraq as a result
of the invasion and occupation," Frist said. "It's
only fitting that families share in the wealth that their
loved ones died to secure."
groups demanded that the bill be made retroactive to the veterans
of the first Gulf War, pointing out that although only about
700 soldiers died during the war, many thousands have died
since due to exposure to DU and other toxic chemicals.
for Halliburton expressed concerns that the bill might set
a dangerous precedent, and possibly imperil the participation
of American corporations in the planning and promotion of
of companies are reportedly preparing a counter-proposal,
offering to place statues of US soldiers in prominent areas
of Iraq, and reciting the names of deceased soldiers during
the opening prayers of stockholder meetings.

faced with the question of what kind of government are you
going to establish in Iraq?
it going to be a Kurdish government or a Shi'ite government
or a Sunni government? How many forces are you going to have
to leave there to keep it propped up?
