page 3 section 2.... this is germanys step by step on how they carried out the marshall plan's redenomination process....which is who/what iraq is supposedly patterned after. See the following articles to draw the parallels.


BACKGROUND ON MARSHALL PLAN


The Marshall Plan was more than an aid program to help Europe recover from war damage. It sought to restructure Western European economies away from its prewar socialist direction and launch them on a new path towards US style market capitalism based on a new monetary regime of a gold-backed dollar and to keep budding European social democracy from mutating into populist communism through elections........

...............On June 5, 1947, Secretary of State George C. Marshall spoke at Harvard University and outlined the Marshall Plan. Europe, still devastated by the war, had just survived one of the harshest winters on record. The nations of Europe had nothing to sell for hard currency with which to buy food and fuel, and the postwar social democratic governments in most countries were unwilling and unable to adopt the draconian proposals for recovery advocated by old-line classical market economists. Something had to be done, both for humanitarian reasons and also to stop the potential spread of communism in Western Europe...........

..................Unlike the rest of the war-torn world, the US had never had it so good, which left the national psyche with greatly reduced phobia against war. Operationally, both WWI and II were limited wars for the US fought only on foreign land. The positive socio-economic impacts from these two world wars left the US with a cavalier mentality for future limited wars, first Korea, the Vietnam, then Kosovo, then Iraq, then Afghanistan, then Iraq again and possible Iran before long. ................

.......On September 23, 2003, just six months after the American invasion of Iraq began, President George W. Bush went before the United Nations General Assembly to announce that he was prepared to make "the greatest financial commitment of its kind since the Marshall Plan" in order to help rebuild Iraq. At the same time, Ambassador L. Paul Bremer III, the top American civilian administrator in Iraq, was delivering the identical message to the Senate Appropriations Committee, telling the senators that America intended to do for Iraq what it had done for Europe following World War II.

In the five years since President Bush delivered his Marshall Plan speech, America has ... http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1G1-188347228.html
