50 years in iraq

Our leader wants us in Iraq on a permanent basis, just like the 50 years we've been in Korea. I guess it will take that long to drain the oilfields. Read it and weep. Or gnash your teeth, rend garments. Whatever.

This is so infuriating!

"The war on Terror is going to take a long time..."

Who are they trying to kid? This isn't a fucking war on terror! This is an occupation. The war on terror is in pakistan and Afghanistan, places where we are woefully short on troops, and where fundamentalist Muslims are quickly regaining control and power. We are going to stay on indefinitely? WTF are these neocon assholes thinking? Are they trying to deflect a terrorist attack in country by putting our children up as targets in Iraq? IMPEACH NOW!

Yep, like Tater says, it's infuriating but we've known for some time now that they've been building bases so we could have a continuous presence.

This really isn't new and it pisses me off that they act like they just learned this today. It's been part of the plan from the beginning.

Off to rend!!

Figures, the SOB starts another Vietnam war and can't get any part of it right. Of course we will be engaged in the region for the next 50 years, but ONLY because of the arrogance, deception and incompetance of the Bushliburton administration.

That's what I said (big fucking emphasis on the I) when we rolled in there in 2002. It's always been about the oil. Always has been. I know I'm on the fringe, but I've always thought the attacks on 9/11 were conspired acts, not from the middle east, but from the oval office.

It's all about the oil.

So, Iraq will turn into a regular "unaccompanied tour" for the soldiers, along with Korea. Except with IEDs and active combat. Goddamn. In addition to all other consequences from this, our Assclown in Chief is going to drive troops' morale all the way down the latrine hole. He's taking away even that hope of "when this is over..." for them.

If he had to work out of a White House Annex over there, watch how fast we'd be done.
