Its just another aspect of the same problem that caused the banking meltdown. The rich elite gorge themselves on insane salaries for a decade or two by throwing the stock market under a bus in the name of quick and easy profit, and then when the time arrives to pay the price for the greed, they socialise the losses and the little people (aka taxpayers) end up picking up the tab, via federal bailouts.
Same deal with the war. Sacrifice the lives of the commoners, burn all their taxes up on a trillion dollar war, and then reap the profits that come via non-contest contracts being awarded to big US mining/oil companies. Privatise profit, socialise loss. Its the new world order.
