    FULL STORY

    Zora first mentioned this over a year ago. How can anyone say that this entire fiasco is about anything other tha fattening the pockets of people with oil, defense and construction interests?

    UGH.

    It's really all quite sad. And as an American living overseas I have no plausible explanation as to just why we destroyed the country in the first place!! Other than money was there to be made by a few in the Bush inner circle.

    Sometimes I just keep getting reminded, vaguely, of a play. The Mouse That Roared.

    There is no money to be made in that, Orca.

    7 out of 8 substandard. Typical performance for gov't construction projects.

    If they can make it 8 for 8, then servicemen from the Boston area will feel right at home.

    I put a good deal of effort into it last year, when it was just the Iraqi police academy. Nobody gave a shit then, I doubt they will now.

    Anyone claiming to be a fiscal conservative who still supports this administration is a piece of human excrement, and I really just don't want to get into it yet again.

    We are under the domination of an administration wholly comprised of corrupt, money-grubbing tyrants. Fuck all of you who pull out any piece of shit they can find anyone else having done in the past, and using that as a FUCKING excuse as to why we should just bend over and take it from this far more organised, greedy, and effective regime. You don't get it- great. Why does the whole nation, and by extension the world, have to pay for you to continue having the right to be ignorant?
