e over the bulk of the lucrative contracts (Haliburton has already one one contract)which will be paid for by Iraqi oil. American companies will make tons of money and the Iraqi people will remain poor.

Here's a joke: Why doesn't Geogie do something about the homeless or the poor in America? Because they don't have any oil. Long live trickle-down economics.

The fun has only just begun.

I was just thinking to myself earlier today, despite my objectins to the war, it really was a great thing to see a people liberated. Now, having set this precedent, we need to get rid of all of the rest of the dictators in the world... that would be cool. it's not going to happen, because that's not what this war was about, just like it wasn't about wmds, either. I can make more dangerous stuff in my kitchen than what they've found so far. And that's just my chili.

Unless you signed an agreement that the US would end a war with you only on the condition that you got rid of those things you can make in your kitchen, there isn't much comparison between those and Iraq's weapons.

it's not contradictory to be ecstatic about the great outcome of a decision you didn't agree with. everyone is glad as all hell to see iraqis party--me too! but, i'm still despondent that we didn't come to liberate iraqis; that we aren't living up to our promises with the afghans; that we burned our bridges with the entire world to get here; and that we don't have a plan for what's next.

"Dickie, Donny, and Georgie"? What is that, and example of the Maureen Dowd Fan Club debating method?
