... . "The streets are littered with trash" There are no muslims to run the complex equipment.

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

The first quote, speaks volumes about the state of Iraq and the entire muslim world. There is no need for the trash to be thrown into the streets. This is basic way of living in a civilized world. Sadly it is not the way of people who have a 6 th century mindset act. The fact is that all over the muslim world are unable to run complex equipment and to be able to learn new skills is sad.

This is not just an Iraq problem. Many muslim countries fly in experts from non muslim countries to run many many areas. This is due to a lack of skill workers, and people with expert knowledge. This is why the muslim world is so very very poor !... Some of the muslim people blame the Americans. They muslims say they have not spent enough money and they did not take enough time to train the muslims. What ! ! ! It is the responsibility of the muslims to learn to use the advanced equipment and technology that was given to them. Why not invite massive numbers of muslims to Canada and the rest of the Western world ? Would that not be just great for us ?
