Cannot be a simple cartesian relation.

Reader comment on item: Wasted U.S. Spending in Iraq (and Afghanistan): $53 billion and Counting

Submitted by Svet (United States), Nov 22, 2009 at 00:02

George W. Bush administration did not let realities get in the way of fantasy....

One cannot live in such a twilight zone....Seems as if Bush did a lot of favors to American companies to get these contracts. I refuse to believe Americans may be so stupid- to give away so much money to a Neanderthal cultureā€¦.

Who were the ones- contractors, sub-contractors that built these (useless) facilities- too developed ?

I refuse to believe it was a simple Cartesian relation: "Free, stable" and "democratic" Iraq"...


I'm not astonished with Ali Ghalib Baban's commentary.

Firstly b/c no matter what infidels to do Muslims, not only are infidels ' obligation to serve such a Muslim , but also it comes from infidels' hand, so has no value.

Secondly, if the Iraq administration is to say thank you, they will show to their undeveloped and manipulated kind that infidels are not as bad as they look. It may bother their disgraced Jihadist culture.
