It does cost us a lot of money to churn out dummies at the end of the government school assembly line. While they are in school, and like you said....especially when they enter society.

Have a hard time with the crack thing again, huh?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

So for $300+BILLION we have killed over 100,000 Iraqi Civilians, destroyed the Iraqi Civilian infrastructure, started a Civil War in Iraq. Started a Religious War in Iraq. Started an insurgent movement that is NOW tied to Al Qaeda [but was not in Iraq before the war started].

Further we have 2,695 dead US soldiers and 232 dead Coalition Troops and nearly 40,000 wounded. All of this for a trumped up war that had nothing to do with WMD, Terrorism, or Threats to the United States. And above all, after almost exactly 1000 days, we are NO CLOSER TO WINNING than the day we started. Generals in the field are requiring more troops to “stabilize”, the projections are in YEARS, not months and we still don’t have a reason for being there. OBL was never there, nor was Al Qaeda, nor were terrorist organizations that were actively targeting the US.

So $300+Billion, No Victory, No OBL, No Exit Plan, No Logic. Just a few days of video for “Freedom isn’t Free” posters and “Shock and Awe” videos. Otherwise we have done nothing but POUND SAND FOR 1000 DAYS.

HELL OF A JOB BUSHIE.

It always looks darkest before the dawn.

If people had as little resolve in previous wars, Ameicans would be speaking German now.
