Why killing civilians for business?

in response to reader comment: Why killing a peace activist ?

Dear All,

British businesses have profited by at least £1.1 billion since coalition forces took over Iraq three years ago. Private security services, banks, PR consultancies, urban planning consortiums, oil companies, architects and energy advisory bodies are all on a list of companies that have successfully set up in the country. A total of 61 British companies are identified. However, the figure could be as much as five times higher because many companies prefer to keep their interests secret. However the British business still lags behind profits paid to American companies.

We know who you are in the guise of 'liberators' and preachers of peace. Wolves under the skins of sheep- (rightly pointed out by JustMe in his/her posting 'Keep an Eye in these guys'). Do you seriously believe that the world is full of fools?
