From: Recession The Movie

You do realize that the Iraq invasion and occupation is directly tied to our economy, don't you?

Ask Leila Fadel...
This week on the JOURNAL, Bill Moyers spoke with Leila Fadel, Baghdad bureau chief for McClatchy, about her experiences on the ground in Iraq.

You do realize that multiple de-regulation, signing statements and pure selfishness are the heads of the pin that prick us over and over and over.


You wouldn't stop the funding for the occupation when you had a chance. You wouldn't force the withdrawal of the troops when you had a chance.

You didn't seem phased by the dying and displaced people of Iraq and you sure don't seem phased by the continued death of the soldiers and private contractors.

"Inside Iraq" "firsthand accounts of their experiences."

So, the only thing I can determine, is that the majority of you are being blackmailed by somebody. Or maybe you are just suffering from clinical depression. Or maybe its both.
