54. Let me see. We blow the shit out of a country
Edited on Sun Dec-26-04 05:23 AM by Carl Brennan
then attempt to set up a permanent occupation. Then we talk about market efficiencies of privatizing the oil there. What needs to happen more than anything else is that the US must gets its ass thoroughly kicked in Iraq so that it will think two or three times before it tries to attack another country SOLELY for its resources.

If the US cannot or will not learn from this then let the US eat its shit and die.
