I swear to God you people are deliberately missing the point! How else to explain these well meaning posts about how it would be "wrong" to attack Iraq? No shit...REALLY???
Get to the fucking point and cut to the bone. The United States has been attacking lots and lots of countries and for a very long time...our "to be envied" Lifestyle demands it. Even though we don't benefit from all the direct rape and plunder and murder...our bosses sure as hell do.
This country has the resources it needs to care for every last citizen and then some...it's just that there isn't huge profit to be made that way, so everyone shakes their heads and says we can't afford this and we can't afford that...then they borrow their arses dry borrowing to build things nobody needs...but can be made to think they need.
Cut the sentimental crap about right and wrong and just talk "bucks"...BIG ones and all that people have EVER been willing to do to get as many of them as they could.
