I am surprised to see no comments, especially after some of the Breitbart's posters' ravings from yesterday. (I am still responding to comments.)
How many lives have we lost in Iraq, yet another war America did not finish? How many times will America destroy and rebuild the same nations? We don't even provide adequate care for Wounded Warriors.
In other words, Basra is on its own. The ME does not want democracy...maybe not even civilization. Foreign aid is a loser. Re-read, "The Ugly American". The only successes to which we could ever point are Israel and Japan because of General MacArthur.
PS
Katushka rockets are Russian.

Oh John. What a nasty kettle of worms.
Patton would never ever have agreed to that stupidity. In West Berlin GI's bulldozed rubble and did the rebuilding. In Eastern Germany, the vanquished passed buckets from hand to hand. We air lifted to supply West Germany at our expense. Eventually the wall came down and we kept on sinking taxpayer bucks into both sides, supply NATO and now the EU muslim debacle.
No more bail outs here or elsewhere.
Taxpayers should listen up because lobbyists WILL ALWAYS BE AROUND.
Wars are for winning and to the victor belongs the spoils.
