The Iron Triangle

The confluence of the military, big business and politics.

See how it works. An interesting video about the Carlyle Group; about G Bush senior's business interests and his son's political influence; and about the financial benefit of war.

And the nominee for new head of the World Bank:

A 'policy wonk with sharp elbows'

Robert Zoellick is nominated by Bush Jr as successor to Paul Wolfowitz as head of the World Bank.
"Described by former colleagues as a policy wonk with sharp elbows, Mr Zoellick's background means he is familiar with the rigours of international diplomacy. Before his official jobs under Mr Bush, he served as a protege of James Baker, a long-time confident of the Bush family. Mr Zoellick helped run two presidential election campaigns and served in the administration of Mr Bush's father."
