How much more money can we divert away from our shores to that "money pit" that Iraq has turned out to be. This money will do nothing to help the Iraqi economy. As soon as we leave, the civil war or "insurgency" as the Bushdroids will call it, will escalate and it will just be one huge mess over there. Thanks for sending my hard earned tax dollars over there so I won't be able to count on Social Security when I retire among many other things this $1 billion dollar investment could have helped in our country.

That $1 billion could be used to send probes to the outer edges of our solar system......or it could be used for crumbling American infrastructure...or it could be used for the health of the American people.....etc etc

Why are the people of other countries more important to our government than the American people?

Bush expects a return on investment of this one billion. I'm optimistically betting that 15% or so will make it past waste, loss and corruption to be of true benefit to the Iraqis. One the one hand this sounds about right compared to many charities out there, on the other hand, sounds like a poor business decision by a poor businessman. Ultimately it is probably just so we can on the face of it appear to be helping Iraq while we pull out of it shortly, though as a goodwill gesture I think it will be a failure as well.

what is sad to me is the state of healthcare in this country... and yet we dull out another billion to put a band-aid on an amputation - that we created - based on a lie.

as rich as this country is, there are so many without healthcare. it just seems crazy to me that we can't make healthcare available to every citizen of this country.

IMO, there is no amount of good that could possibly justify all that has, and will, go wrong in this war. another billion - another wasted opportunity for this country.

I have an idea. Let's have congress give Bush the right to legislate by presidential decree, then he can dissolve congress and the courts, and appoint his own judges and then he'll be president for life and we can call him King W.

I'm sure there are a few whacked out neo-cons out there that think this is a good idea.
