    Naw man, you have to embrace the future. Imagine it, warehouses stocked with freedom and democracy just waiting to be shipped off to an oppressed people!

    I don't know exactly what you are trying to say there, but we in fact carried out the recommendations of Cheney's Report, we used a military method to assure that Iraq can't withhold access to their property from Western oil anymore.
    We don't get any signigicant amount of oil from Iraq...that goes to China and India. Are we getting money from the sale of oil? Perhaps as a form of payback for upgrading and repairing their oil infrastructure on our dime?

    You may just have to go back and reread their recommendations. They have noting to do with the US getting oil from Iraq, or money from the sale of Iraqi oil. They have to do with ending Nationalized oil in Iraq that prevented foreign investment in Iraqi oil. Mission Accomplished as the banner said. Iraq is once again open to big oil for the first time in over 3 and a half decades, thanks to our invasion and help setting up a new corrupt, but US friendly, Regime that we remain to protect from the Iraqis.

    I'm failing to see a downside, or a malicious intent...and a corrupt regime, for that matter.

    Hate to throw a fly in the ointment, but shouldn't we perfect our own freedom and democracy before we start exporting it by force of death to others?

    It seems only those that have a problem with killing people to militarily control another's use of their own property have a problem with it. Go figure!

    Look, we're single handedly creating the future of the United States, while providing a clear and understandable job creator that could very well pull this entire country and possibly the world, out of this economic funk. You keep arguing for self-rights, self-governance, and individual rights.... what are you, a closet conservative?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    LOL! Oh you're serious aren't you? I sort of figured that might be the case when you thanked Ikari for the facetious post.
