  •  Wow. Just wow. (6+ / 0-)

    Wouldn't it be better to use, oh, I don't know, these 500+ million dollars on rebuilding Iraq's infrastructure pro bono? Someone might actually like us there then. You usually don't shoot the person who rebuild your house in the head. At least, not without fair warning.

    But I'm sure they'll solve the problem. Granted, it'll take another six months and another five hundred million dollars, but I'm sure ole Georgie'll just send another shipful of dollars to Iraq. Unsupervised, of course.

    I've heard of throwing money at a problem, but this base is ridiculous. Why not throw money at a solution? Besides, if we're due out of Iraq 'soon,' why build such a base? Why squander money? The Democrats have to start asking some nasty questions now. It's good politics, sure to build support for the next elections and crush mr. 28. Besides, it's right to do it. The soldiers deserve better.

      ...let's not have too much of that.

      Well, to answer your question.

      Squandering money is much of what that war is about as
      was Vietnam if you look into closely.

      The Democrats have to start asking some nasty questions now.

      Sorry, I don't think so--we're talking the big-time here, like I said the heavyweights in politics don't fuck around when it comes to their money they stole fair and square--check out the S & L Scandal.

      Besides, if we're due out of Iraq 'soon,' why build such a base?

      Why ask such a question? What indication do you have that the U.S. will withdraw from the strategic center of the world? Makes no sense and it won't happen since the American people are still mainly interested in shopping.
