The Politics of Fear!

Back in the 1950's President Dwight Eisenhower gave a farewell speech in which he said' "Beware the Military Industrial Complex" and truer words were never spoken.

History has proven this warning as prophetic and all too accurate as we have seen over the last half century.

Companies such as Big Oil and Haliburton and all the defense contractors have called the shots in Washington and politicians have danced to their tune.

To give you an example of this............... why has no one in the current Presidential race questioned what the States is doing in Iraq in the first place?

Afghanistan is fairly cut and dried since that is the home of the Taliban and also al-Qaeda but we really have only two interests in Iraq. One is the "OIL" and the second was "W" getting even with Saddam Hussein for his father.

There really is no logical reason for America to be in Iraq and I can't for the life of me understand why nobody has said so!!!!

Sure I know the "politics of fear" goes a long way, but to ruin the economy to the tune of trillions of dollars, and thousands of lives, while the defense contractors make money hand over fist is NUTS kids.

But, who listens to me anyway!

"Why has no one in the current Presidential race questioned what the States is doing in Iraq in the first place?" Because the question is for all intents moot. The fact is that presently we are in Iraq. We can't change the past, only the future. What do we do now? That should be the question.
