“if you want a shorter rebuilding process…” blah blah skip the rest of her inane useless drivel. Here’s an idea for Ann, how about you start with a solid rebuilding PLAN!
Last I checked those things helped a whole lot.
Oh yeah, she needs to re-evaluate who we are fighting against. Slaughtering civilians like cattle really won’t help us. But hey, I am glad she wants to turn our soldiers into heartless murderers.[/quote]
I think what she is saying is that, it takes more time, and costs more to wage a war that distinguishes enemies from civilians, and spares the civilians, and that her only problem with that is the fact that liberals are using that increased time to complain and demoralize the rest of America. She in no way shape or form condoned heartless killing, she merely stated that is the only other alternative, to a humane war.
And of course the US is serving its own intrest, thats the job of a government duh! I want my government looking out for me first and then everyone else. Is that selfish, hardly. I am perfectly well capable of deciding when I should sacrifice something of my own to help someone else. I’ll be damned if someone else decides I should be less well off for the sake of someone who does not pay taxes ( Which the government to some degree already has done). Not only that but the government can’t decide that whole of its population should suffer for some people over seas. A government based on freedom just should not have that authority. Our government should make every decision with America as the benefactor.
So in the hypothetical situation that we do stabilize Iraq, I would not be surprised if the Iraqi government sells us oil for a cheaper price. In reality if that is the plan we are already paying a stupidly high price for that oil right now.
Have you seen how the people in Iraq live? They could benefit from a better economy. Which would allow schools and better education. Eventually that would lead to a strong ally for democracy in the future. Also better educated Iraqis would be produced which would help on technology fore front.
Right now some people in Iraq search for metal debris from the war, so they can sell it for money. So you have some 10 year old kid digging up a missle to sell for food.
