Never - for any PNAC goals.

See: at the Mexican border more people died while trying to have a better life than in the whole time of its existance at the Berlin wall. But: they were Mexicans or other latinos.

Never. Except it would happen to be necessary for fredom. Like in the Vietnam war. But they were soldiers.

Never. Except the president decides otherwise:
"We think differently because this is a nation that loves our freedom, loves our country. And this is a nation that has got citizens who are willing to sacrifice for a cause greater than themselves. .... to sacrifice for the greatest nation....

http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2002/05/2002051...

What a difference to those queer arabs who kill temselves for getting the U.S.Army out. A great nation is really different in comparison with those shabby huts.

The great nation is so grateful for the sacrifice. Bur if the oil revenues do not flow as gently as planned, some of the soldiers have to suffer Walter Reid conditions. But what is "neglect and Frustration" in comparison to a cause greater than themselves ?

Anyway - they were soldiers.


But never ever the Bush administration would sacrifice innocent civilians. Except it were necessary like the utterly needed "catastrophic event" that PNAC was longing for to have a cause to transform the military, the country and the world. It was only 9/11, on 7/7 in London it was only Brits. So: compare it with the cause greater than themselves.

1. You forgot your sarcasm smilie!
But you will certainly find that the vociferous supporters of the official conspiracy theory (OCTers) on this board agree with your "fake" position -- you know, that George Bush may be incompetent, but he is certainly not evil, certainly not someone who would allow Americans to die in order to gain control of trillions of dollars worth of oil for his cronies.

The problem is that these OCTers have a deep and abiding faith in the basic "goodness" of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld & company.

For me, however, whatever doubt I had that Bush would murder Americans for profit disappeared during the administration's response to hurricane Katrina. Thousands of Americans died in New Orleans, not just from the initial storm and flood, but from thirst, starvation, lack of medical care, secondary drowning (trying to self rescue through deep and polluted water), drinking polluted water -- in essence because they had to wait for days for the federal government to respond.

And it wasn't because trillions of dollars of oil were at stake; it was because the "evil doers" who now run our country wanted to stay on vacation.

2. "incompetent, but not evil" - a nice and helpfull religion
It helps when you get sacrificed.

Gives you the smile you are missing. In the moment.
