    Wait a minute, you just said in another thread that we should let half of a major city basically die of thirst, if they can't afford it, all Americans. But we shouldn't prevent the terrorists from securing an area that gives them the resources to attack us on our own soil again? Meh..

    Water is cheap.If they are can not afford it is because they are not prioritizing their spending.A bum in my city can easily afford water, so why can't half those people in Detroit you claim to be dying of thirst?

    I am sure that excuse has been use for a lot of conflicts.But I am not buying it this time.Degenerate neocon scum are always looking for a bull **** excuse to get us into war and many gullible people buy it.

    Many of these degenerate neocon scum claim "oh you can't be an isolationist". It was trying to interfere in everyone's business that got us into this mess.

    Half the people in Detroit can't afford to pay their water bill and that's alright with you, because they're obviously worse than bums? Dude, you need to dwell on that a little more.

    You obviously didn't read my post for the reasoning on why we're going back in? Doesn't matter now how some dimwits got us into it, we're in the **** now.

    ....hmm. okay. And do you think they might be planning on coming back? How many do you think are flowing in and out per month? Year?


    These people are training an at-home Jihadi force of European citizens. Like it or not, the Middle Easts' problems are our problems.

    I have actualy opend a thread on this already.

    What I hope will happen is that their citizenship will be revoked.

    Some have already returnd, those that **** their pants after arriving in Syria and fled back, those are now facing trial for supporting terror organisations.

    They can still buy water from the store. They do have programs that help the poor

    Nearly Half Of Detroit Water Customers Can’t Pay Their Bill « CBS Detroit
    “We do have programs that do help those that are just totally in need; can’t afford it — but we also know that there are also people who can’t afford it would can not pay and we know this because, once we shut water off, the next day they are in paying the bill in full. So we do know that that has become a habit as well,” said Garner.

    Neocons will come up with any bull **** excuse to get us involved in another war regardless if its financially and or militarily. Oh its to stop terrorism from spreaden, oh we need to stop the ruskies from taken over Ukraine, oh we need to stick up for our allies.

    War economies do keep folks working. Makes for good press for the Kingdom of Washington - that means more claims that job rates are up. The good citizens get excited when job rates are up. Casket companies and funeral home businesses thrive. The US is becoming the world leader in maintaining war economies.

    Why do you keep saying Neocons, as though they rule the US? Yes, they're nuts about using the military to spread Americanism, but that's not what's happening in Iraq right now. It's becoming a situation that will affect every US citizen at the pumps and possibly create a base for attacks on US interests.

    I bet you dollars for donuts we'll be back over there before the Holiday Season.
