Soldiers in Iraq: important.
Soldiers at home: not so much.

Bush: Base closings will help pay for war on terror

If you want to win, you've got to cut back. That's how America prevails.

In the war on terror, apparently, in order to prevail you have to scale back your military. It's much more economical to reduce the human rights of your citizens than it is to fund your military.

Sodiers who went to Iraq from Ellington Field, Igleside, Red River, Brooks City and Lone Star, will return (assuming they're still alive) to closed or greatly reduced bases.

The war in Iraq is costing us billions of dollars per month, so the administration is trying to save a few million in domestic base costs. Of course, these base costs only eliminate thousands of domestic jobs, and don't affect Haliburton's bottom line, so they don't count in the overall cost of the "war on terra".


if they only knew... Posted by Hello

When are we going to wake up and see that this administration is leading us down the garden path? While our soldiers are scrounging for protection in Iraq, our leaders, and their cohorts, are socking away millions in profits. And whining about the cost of "freedom", so they can take away local jobs and award them to foreign nationals in order to protect our security.

So as our soldiers return to us from Iraq and find themselves reporting far away from their homes, or even in other states, they can thank Bush for making this war profitable for his corporate buddies. Because while they made a killing through their contracts, America lost jobs, integrity, and military bases.

And the graduating class cheered. Let's see how they cheer when they come home.
