Vote for McBush to stay the course
When Osama bin Ladin wakes up in the morning and bows to Mecca, he must feel giddy. His goal of destroying us by bankrupting our economy is right on target. Another day in Iraq is one more day of freedom for him.
It’s now projected that the long-term cost of this fiasco is around $3 trillion, plus thousands of young lives. After spending $25 billion on reconstruction projects, Iraqis now have less clean water, electricity, schools, medical facilities and oil than before we invaded.
Iraq is not so much a country as it is a collection of tribes, all of whom have hated each other for thousands of years. Their first, second and third loyalties are to their tribe and the local cleric. Perhaps somewhere down the line Iraq comes into play. Bush could have discovered this by spending one hour with a legitimate Mideast historian. Instead, he was busy watching Cheney and Rumsfeld giving each other high fives over their "grand strategy." The only one with any common sense was Colin Powell, until Bush fired him.
If you want four more years of the same strategy, be sure to vote for McBush in the fall. Maybe we can get the cost up to $6 trillion by then.
I’m voting for whomever will begin the process of disengaging us from this mess. Only then can we continue the job of going after bin Ladin.
