Gallup poll sums up what Americans think of the war, rebuilding Iraq and the possibility of going to war with other countries.
I found a very topical comic in Calvin and Hobbes: It's a Magical World last night, but I can't find it online so I'll scan it in on Monday. However, I also saw this in the paper yesterday.
George W. Bush's military record.
Longass Quote of the Day:
Schultz worked at Bechtel. So did (Reagan Defense Secretary) Caspar Weinberger. There were a lot of Bechtel people in the government in the '80s at the same time that the Iraqi's were gassing the Iranis. The same people are now formulating the plans for a coming U.S. occupation of Iraq, and in turn, the same people will be given the spoils of war--whether it's Parsons and Halliburton or Bechtel. It's all kind of circular back to the 1980s, you know -- completing unfinished business--getting American companies back in there after their being shut out since 1991 and the first Gulf War.
