Jobs To Bring Democracy To Iraq?
Most stories of people going to Iraq for jobs
are due to the financial downfall of the current US
economic environment. The pay is great, three to
four times the amount you would get for the same job
here in the US(If the jobs were here).
Over 15,000 civilians have been contracted(mostly
by Halliburton Co.) to rebuild and bring Democracy to
Iraq. To put the body count against that, it is not too
bad, 30 have been killed, 20 captured, and over 200 have
been wounded. Most of these number have risen just in the
past month due to the Shiite and Sunni Anti-American uprising
and internal civil war in every large city. So Iraq as a
social engineering project has ended up as a failure(not
that Bush has had much success with our economy as well, let
alone another countries economy) and with only 60 days(June 30th)
until the new government will take over, not one has yet
to be chosen.
So even at this time the future job market for Iraq is looking
very grim. Unless drastic measures, like the U.N. to rally
international support to get it resolved, not much is
going to happen except a larger body count of both civilian
and armed forces.
