6 Out Of 8 Iraq Reconstruction Projects Are A Failure

  1. But they are a grand success for HAL and its' subsiduaries. Only the most cult-like cannot see how corrupt our so-called leaders are.

    WAR is the most profitable human endevor, even going back to the civil war. That is why 1/2 of your taxes are spent on war and the war machine and why we have had 100 years of constant war and invasions, and why the world have becomce less free and more destroyed since then. We are a death cult. :(
  2. If anyone is paying attention, Eisenhower is rarely if ever mentioned by the Repubs.

    Why? Because he warned of the dangers of the military industrial complex and its growing power and influence.

    What Ike warned us of, has materialized in the worst way for over 50 years, with the Bush Cabal near the ultimate of graft and a blank check to the military industrial complex and related efforts of companies like HAL...

    Carry the battle to them. Don't let them bring it to you. Put them on the defensive and don't ever apologize for anything.
    Harry S. Truman

    Gee, wonder why the dems don't quote him.

    Eisenhower was talking about arms suppliers. I think a comparison with Iraq reconstruction is a stetch at best. How about all those congress persons that make the Pentagon build outdated weapons platforms because it keeps jobs in their district? Like "sheets" Byrd. Check it out, he's is the worst offender when it comes to pork.

    The reconstruction 'effort' in Iraq is an premeditated failure.

    The Neocon agenda wants America in the MiddleEast for the next 50 years.

    The 'failure' of Iraq provides the context for permanent military bases and sustained troop levels.
  6. Of course Democrat's Wilson, FDR, Truman and LBJ wasted little on military endeavors. Between them almost one million American's died.

    Bush is the first Republican since Lincoln to fight a bona fide war (although calling this a war is like calling Hillary honest).

  7. How does what Wilson, FDR, Truman, LBJ did have any important logical bearing on Bush's failed war?

    Strawman....par for the past his prime....

  8. Would someone explain to me why it is the responsibility of the American taxpayer to fund projects in a country with the third largest oil reserves in the world? WTF have they done for us? Of course it's our own fault for not taking control of their oil reserves and running them efficiently and without corruption. We could have funded the occupation and the rebuilding effort.
  9. Hey babe, it's YOU who introduced Ike (who died in 1968) into a discussion about Iraq.

    If Iraq FREAKS YOU OUT then you're going to have some truly difficult times when President Hillary goes after Iran.
