Our fascists suck.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - The U.S. military on Tuesday announced the deaths of six more American soldiers, pushing the U.S. military death toll since the beginning of the Iraq war in March 2003 to at least 2,978 — five more than the number killed in the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean, but to me it means that we doubled the amount of people killed on 9/11 plus we actually made terrorism worse, not to mention we practically obliterated Iraq for no good reason and Afghanistan is worse than ever. Heck of a job, bushie.

And how about this waste by the lousy fascists?
WASHINGTON - The tally for Hurricane Katrina waste could top $2 billion next year because half of the lucrative government contracts valued at $500,000 or greater for cleanup work are being awarded without little competition.

Federal investigators have already determined the Bush administration squandered $1 billion on fraudulent disaster aid to individuals after the 2005 storm. Now they are shifting their attention to the multimillion dollar contracts to politically connected firms that critics have long said are a prime area for abuse.
Can this administration do anything right?

And what is with this troop surge NOW? Why didn't they send in enough troops in the first place if they felt that they HAD to wage this war? The military should have recruited enough troops and have enough war gear ready BEFORE the US shocked and awed Iraq. Hell, even I figured that out 3 years ago. They are so useless. Some people try to tell me to this day how the war was so urgent. I didn't believe it then and I don't believe it now.

And bush is contemplating giving $10billion for a New Deal project in Iraq that would put Iraqi's to work? Get the hell outta here. Why doesn't the US just flush it down the toilet? And why do I get the feeling that somehow the US corporations will benefit the most from this exercise? And why aren't there any New Deal projects in the US at this time? feh, on all of them.
