1. Hellofa good idea! No casualties. It's going to be a mess
regardless of whether we stay or go. That's just a given.

2. If I have my way..
the US won't get off that cheaply.

Because the recent US lead war in Iraq was not sanctioned by the United Nations and because there was no request from the Iraqi government for such an invasion and because there was no act of aggression by Iraq to justify military action the war must be deemed, by all reasonable international standards to be illegal.

We, the undersigned, urge the UN to seek compensatory damages, to be paid by nations participating in the invasion of Iraq, for the people of Iraq to include, but not be limited to;

1) Full compensation for all persons injured as a direct or indirect result of the invasion.

2) All persons suffering property damage as a direct or indirect, result of the invasion.

3) All persons suffering a loss of wages or other hardship as a, direct or indirect, result of the invasion.

4) The families or next of kin of all fatalities that were a, direct or indirect, result of the invasion.

5) The government of Iraq, including local and regional governments for damage done to public property and antiquities

and

6) Punitive damages to help the people of Iraq recover in the post war period.

If international law is to have any validity then it must seek to punish violators and compensate victims when that law is violated.

3. Another idea
....or refuse to fund this agression any longer! Stop this money flow into everyone's pockets. The last $89 billion only had $4 billion make it's way to the soldiers needs. Stop the funding..bring our soldiers home. Just say 'no'!

4. A real MBA President would account for the missing BILLIONS
before asking for more.

6. He also forgot to include the 25 billion already appropriated!
Did you know that they have 2 BILLION set aside for the building of a US EMBASSY in Iraq? These guys aren't using this $ for the military! Besides, why give them more when they've lost 11 BILLION that they can't account for! GEEEEEZ! They don't think anyone notices, or what?
