enough !! lets just take over iraq

We have spent 1 TRILLION dollars there,
Things are a mess, they can't get their
Act together, this thing just isn't going
To stop.
They have oil

Lets just take them over, build a base, we
Need one there. We have PR and Guam,
Why not just take it.....we have bought
And paid for it, not only in money and
Our soldier blood.

Why we are at it might as well take Israel
We give them $3 billion a year

And just to really get everyone mad take
The Ukraine

Just for fun, someone should figure how
Much per acre we have paid per acre
For Iraq.

Re: enough !! lets just take over iraq

Let me get this straight, you believe we should "take over" countries that "have oil" and some that don't?

 

FYI, I don't know where you have been the last decade, but we have already tried the takeover thing in Iraq and had a base there. Didn't work out so well for us and a lot of Americans and something like ten score more Iraquis lost their life.

 

Take Israel by force? Seriously? Really? Let's see a show of hands here on that one. Everyone who thinks elcheapo is a brick shy of a load, please raise your hand. (I think everyone raised their hands)

 

Take Ukrane too?....what's our advantage there? What would that get us and why in the heck would we want to do that?

 

I am so happy you are not in charge of anything at all, anywhere. Go plant thistles fpor a cash crop or something.

Re: enough !! lets just take over iraq

It is cheaper to "just take them over"
Compaired to now.

In the case of Iraq, we have paid enough
($9000+ per acre) plus all the loss of life
And the horrible injuries that many of
Our young military have suffered.

Maybe we should have a show of hands
To see if they agree.

If I was in charge of some of it things might
Be different.

I know a couple of the young and not
So young hurt over there.

I believe we have already paid too much.

You don't suppose a lot of the troubles there now come from the fact you took them over 10 plus years ago under the criminal Bush administration?

 

Your take over is still being felt.

All those lives wasted on a criminal invasion of another country.

 

Are you in favor of Russia taking over Crimea too?

CA, why don't you come down here
In person to tell a young man that
Had a leg and hand blown off over
there. What you just said.

Was that aimed at me?

 

I'll bet a lot of them know it was an illegal war that they were forced to fight in.

 

Too bad they had to pay for the criminal decisions of your leadership.

You might want to reflex on the fact ISIS was greatly impowered with the "liberation" of libya and the backing of the muslim brotherhood in egypt and the syrian rebels.

And you should be reminded, until SFB Bush, opened the gates of hell, in the Middle East, was as peaceful as it had been in 20 yrs.
