We rebuild countries after conflicts, including their infrastructure and then leave and have never occupied a country we defeated them in a conflict.
Umm no, you did that once.
I'm sure all the Iraqi children will appreciate all the rebuilding that is taking place there, all those new hospitals and schools, all those nice
green parks. Oh wait, that was Iraq BEFORE the US invaded. What is it now, and what will it be when they "leave"? A desolate wasteland
completely irradiated from depleted uranium.
Afghanistan wasn't even a country? Why, because they were predominately Muslim? I have friends over there fighting right now. and let me tell you
something. We are not helping anyone over there. For every good deed done, 50 or so civilians are blasted from Apaches.
Maybe the US military is different, but I've learned first hand what the consensus is amongst most of the Canadian troops I've had the privileged to
911 didn't happen as we are supposed to believe
Osama died in 2001
We are in Afghanistan, all of us, to help build a bridgehead for the US expansions, not to "free the people".
The war in Iraq, and Afghanistan do indeed revolve around OIL. No, we (we as in all nations involved) are not "stealing" the oil. Nope, we're
smarter than that, we install puppet regimes to give it to us.
Why are we even in Afghanistan if the majority of the "hijackers" were Saudis? Because of a pipeline deal that goes right up into Cheneys fat ass.
i know most people here hate Michael Moore, but he NAILED that on the head in his book.
See for most people it's hard to contemplate people doing things like this for money and power alone. That's because most human beings have
COMPASSION. i don't want to hurt someone, because I can empathize and understand how it would feel if it were me being hurt. I couldn't do
something I know would destroy the environment in 100 years, because as a human, I'd like to think the human race will continue on after me.
But, if you are a sociopath, and have no remorse or compassion, you are a free agent. Who cares what happens to anyone but you, as in the end,
everything revolves around YOU and you alone. Other people don't matter, they are merely players in a game that stars YOU.
Who cares if my actions result in the deaths of 1000000 iraqis based on lies, I'm not one of them so who cares. Who cares if the entire middle east
will be irradiated for decades? I don't live there, I'll get my money, buy a new house and car, and die fat and lazy
