In 2006, the Cole Inquiry found that the one company responsible for all of Australia’s wheat exportations (the AWB) had supplied a total of 14% of the funds towards Saddam Hussein’s war regime at the time. An estimated $300 million was given in bribes to the Iraqi government because the way it was laundered through the books made it look like the AWB was increasing it’s total revenue (something that looks good for the company and attracts investors, etc).
tl;dr An Australian company funded 14% of Iraq’s total war effort in 2006 because it made them money.
I wish I was making this up. I don’t know if I explained it properly but whatever.
