ANYONE who profits or who participates by any means or methods in a plan to profit from instigating or engaging in military conflict is a CRIMINAL in my books… a CRIMINAL of a magnitude that would make the Enron crooks look like pickpockets.
The American people don’t deserve this horrendous black mark against their nature. I don’t believe the average American supports war or profiteering from it. But the “average” American’s “say” has been hijacked by the rich and powerful barons behind the military-industrial complex… and I doubt these CRIMINALS will ever willingly allow the people to decide if and when their country goes to war.

bu$h has said many times he wants all amerakuns to own a home. he also says most of us want us to be in, and stay in Iraq.
Owning a home isn’t as easy as bush or chainey and their Mortgager friends say They would like to saddle each and every one of you with a huge debt sometimes referred to in the market as “Home Ownership”. They even have formulas to show you haw much of your income should be going into your home investment.
The hard truth is, home ownership only occurs when you pay your mortgage off and hold clear title to your property. Until then your a debtor. If you cannot afford a given home using a fixed rate of interest and 15 year life of the mortgage do not, I repeat DO NOT BUY!!!
The housing market is going belly up due to the lack of over-sight to assure the lending institutions are practicing sound policies, some of which are mandated by Federal law.
As a result the housing market and all it’s components, likd Iraq are on a one-way track to complete failure which might result in a major breakdown in our economy.
Of course people like chainey will continue to get even richer in any financial environment.
So, You wants get out of your mortgage in iraq and move to a new neighborhood, like say, I got it! How about Iran?!!!

Sorry Dick (head touter).
If you think the war in Iraq has almost broke our backs, and may still happen, which I do.
Then to even consider attacking Iran is positively suicidal.
Consider how tough it’s been fighting just a handful of outsiders in Iraq and how that will be multiplied if we were to undertake Iran with the Iraqis at our backs and Syria and Saudi Arabia becoming more alarmed at our so obvious Emperialistic behavior.
We are being controlled by a bunch of treasonous mad men!
