America is built on capitalism. In Iraq billions of U.S. Tax dollars are being spent on rebuilding and on maintaining our troops there
I appreciate the service that our troops give us. I am not sure that we should be there but we have our young soldiers are there and we need to take proper care of those troops.
I thanked Andrew S for his article and for his service. As an American we have every right to expect and demand that our tax dollars are spent wisely. I am taking Andrew's word that Haliburton did some good work over in Iraq or contracted some other companies who did a good job.
As an American I still contend that it is not un-patriotic to criticize the government for a foreign policy issue or any other issue.
I will contribute to the cause as I have been caring for the soldiers after they have left the service in whatever way that I can. That is my job and role in life. One area that needs to be addressed is the government will have to come up with the money to care for 20,000 wounded veterans. Citizens who want to support the troops should also be contacting their representatives and asking for additional funds for military hospitals and veterans facilities to care for the massive influx of severely wounded troops. Many of these people are shattered for the rest of their lives
In regards to Dick Cheney getting rich off of Haliburton's recent activities he is not.BUT........
America is built on capitalism. Dick Cheney is not getting rich off of Haliburton he has already done that. Haliburton owes Dick about 23 million dollars but no worries the Cheneys have an insurance policy to make sure that they will get paid one way or the other.
