Just a coincidence?

It is a mantra of Bush and Blair that the US/UK do not have any imperial ambitions in Iraq. They are, they stress, spending nearly $200 billion and killing hundreds of thousands out of the kindness of their hearts, to free the Iraqi people. Strange, then, that the US is constructing up to 14 permanent bases there and that Congress has recently passed a huge supplemental wartime appropriations bill that includes, at the request of the Bush Junta, $500 million for military base construction in Iraq.
