Why were sending blimps to Iraq


1. To spy on registered Democrat soldiers in Iraq
2. To keep an eye on the oil.
3. To find the $9 billion we lost
4. To cover the new super bowl: Lucky ducks versus sitting ducks.
5. Another excuse to give Haliburton money.

6. Probably to broadcast propaganda radio signals to .....
Iraq, maybe Iran? :shrug: They used to use them to locate submarines during WW2 also, but don't think that would work now-a-days. Um maybe bogies? ... or maybe they will just scroll "Give The Fuck Up" along the sides of them like the goodyear blimp advertises during sporting events? :think: Peace.

7. Surrender Dorothy!!
I'm betting that some GOP supporter has convinced the admin that they need a little sugar. Either that or they have evidence that they are willing to bury in exchange for the blimp contract.
