So you feel like you got your money’s worth in Iraq? You feel like we got a good deal for the USA? I sure as hell don’t.
So, ‘xactly what cost did you pay?
Many of us who were there saw, watched and handled some really neat stuff that wasn’t really there.
As far as the war’s overall value? In my exspereince and to my knowledge, both first ahnd and through open source data, is that about 3 US brigades worth of foreign fighters won’t be bothering our shores. They are being entertained by their reward of virgins.....
As to the cost in blood and treasure, sure, no war that is not in your own backyard is ever worth it. But on the other hand, Iraqis now have the opportunity to figure it out on their own, how they do that is up to them. They now produce over 3 million bbls of crude per day, selling much for revenues and supplying their own internal needs. We but some of that oil too.
I hope they do well in memory of our fallen.... If not, that’s on them.
