Deda BS: Most Iraquis better off (66* d) RE: BS: Most Iraquis better off 16 Mar 04

Maybe we didn't do such a bad thing? I'm not too clear on this "we" thing. Halliburton is making a tidy profit. All the reconstruction contracts are being handed out to US companies, none to locals, no matter how capable they may be. Can you say "war profiteering"? How about "looting"? "Cronyism"? It isn't only the Iraqi dead who haven't been interviewed -- it's the newly homeless, the newly para- and quadriplegic, the newly widowed and orphaned. We've sure opened up a world of great opportunities for them!

I think that if the US had never propped Saddam up in the first place, he would have been out of power long ago. And if "our oil" hadn't somehow been misplaced under their sand, we would have let them work out their own destiny; we would have let them learn to fish, so to speak.
