Green Party response to SOTU

Rebecca Rotzler, co-chair of the Green Party of the United States and Deputy Mayor of New Paltz, New York (which recently passed a resolution in favor of impeachment): “The only winners in the Iraq war are U.S. oil companies, arms manufacturers, and military contractors like Halliburton and Blackwater.  Oil companies like Exxon Mobil, Texaco, Chevron, and BP stand to make billions thanks to a proposed law giving them lucrative 30-year contracts allowing access to Iraqi oil.  The billions of dollars these
corporations have made and stand to make from the U.S. invasion of Iraq prove that this was ‘blood for oil’ all along.  President Bush’s proposal to send 21,000 more troops is part of a plan to keep U.S. forces in Iraq for the long haul, to protect American corporate investments and maintain political control in the region.”
