You can't make a silk purse out of sows' ears. Barbarians are barbarians no matter how many times they can vote.
Specifically Clark Air Base. The Air Force left the hospital fully equipped. It was stripped down to the concrete in 24 hours.
Yeah, the picture of flushing 100 BILLION dollars down the drain...
These people are really ready for "freedom and democracy".
The problem with Bush is that he was never in any of these places!
Its not like the getto down the street!
All your base belongs to us!
The Big Red One left Germany a couple months ago.
>>>We're still in Germany after all.
Looting is not common in any US city.
Only the ones with LARGE populations of a certain pampered, welfare dependent minority.
consider the source. I wouldn't be surprised if the was completely made up by the AP.
Who would expect anything less than this behavoir. Not everyone is suitable to be part of a democracy....
"The problem with Bush is that he was never in any of these places!"
What is this supposed to mean?
This happens everywhere the West builds a base and leaves.
I happened to be at Dong Tam, former home of the 9th Inf Division (US) the day it was turned over to the ARVN.
All day ARVN trucks pulled in and EVERYTHING, plumbing, wire, fixtures, window frames, everything flew out the windows, onto the trucks and out the front gate.
Iraq is looking more like Nam every day.
the only thing Iraq and Vietnam have in common are the treasonsous RATS and MSM.
"Iraqis loot base after British leave"
This is but one example of a truism that those in power should have known: NATION BUILDING IN TURD WORLD NATIONS CANNOT SUCCEED!!!!
Iraqis have liberals too? Sounds just like the lame justifcations OUR liberals provide.
"All your base belongs to us!"
Agreed. The Middle East is pathologically criminal to its core. This is why dictatorships are virtually necessary there, because common law and order and decency mean almost nothing there.
Every US, British and Iraqi base should have signs all over the place that say "Looters will be executed on the spot." THAT is a language they will understand.
As my sainted grandmother used to say about one ner-do-well family in our town, "Oh the Joneses - they've always been like that!" American trash or Arab trash, the principle is the same.
Hope they bugged the base parts so we can listen in on some good stuff.
The british have a history of this stupidity in the region, the Taggert Forts come to mind
Do you even know what a Taggert Fort is, and why my comment was pertinent? Or are you just another historically illiterate US basher? If you are English, I can understand, they stopped teaching you your own history decades ago.
You spelt Taggart wrong. When was the last time you were in an English school? How do you know they stopped teaching English history decades ago or did you just make that up? I'm not English so I wouldn't know. As for bashing the US if you want to start slingling mud at Britain expect to get dirty.
