I am so angry.. We had a real chance here, and we BLEW it... Billions of dollars and buckets of blood...and all we have to show for it is funerals and angry people..

The Iraqis were ready to be rid of Saddam.. I firmly believe that, but WHY IN THE HELL didn't we spend the money to HIRE the Iraqis to do the actual work on their country?? Instead of herding them around like cattle, and "taking care of them", we should have given every family $XX.00, and some building supplies.. We could have brought them used cars..brought in food, and supplies... The Iraqi army could have been "deputized" to help clear rubble, and start rebuilding..

These people have been building things for THOUSANDS of years..

Our Politico-Boobs were so intent on "changing" them, that they forgot that the Iraqi people just want their lives to be better.. They want shops, shelter, schools,and a stable income..

We have managed to turn them against us, and for what?? We could have surely convinced them to sell us their oil at a decent rate, in exchange for the money necessary to rebuild their country..

4. Right you are.. We will fight THEIR children after them
Eventually, someone needs to just STOP IT.. All one has to do, is look at Viet Nam today.. They were "left alone" for 30+ years, and they (as a whole) harbor no ill will towards us.. and they SHOULD..

We simply MUST stop meddling in foreign countries.. Buy studd from them, sell stuff to them, but other than that..LEAVE THEM ALONE..


If someone killed my child/husband, I would hate them FOREVER.. Time is the only thing that heals these wounds..

Children learn what they live.. If they see war, they become warriors..
