View Full Version : Do they ever learn?

I strongly suggest that the United States Government take a few pages from history and re-read them just to verify that this is a real stupid move.
Somehow, I wish I could say I am surprised..but I am not. the US is one of the largest arms dealers on this planet. The income generated from this is phenomenal. It has also armed most of their enemies..but what the hay, at least they get money out of it right?

It sort of makes sense in light of this:
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">There is no easy exit from Iraq, but defence secretary Robert Gates has admitted for the first time that the Pentagon is poring over the options. </div></div>
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> AT THE Army College in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Major Daniel Morgan is studying the lessons for Iraq of the Sovietsí chaotic exit from Afghanistan in the late 1980s. The roads were choked with tanks and heavy weaponry, making the demoralised soldiers easy prey for guerillas. </div></div>
US braced for bloody pull-out (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article2159377.ece)
So the result would be that Iraq is left with 2 or 3 factions, armed to the hilt (because we know they'll get their hands on these weapons their neighbours will have), fighting each other and no US troops. The question is "To what end?"
Chako, the mideast has been armed to the teeth for the last four decades.
The U.S., because it has a transparent form of government, is announcing what they are doing; and what they are doing is trying to equal out the massive amounts of arms dealt to certain mideast regimes from Iran, Russia, and other countries of the like. The only difference is those countries do not have a transparent form of government, and do not publish things of the nature for common knowledge.
Below is the US foreign middle east policy:
Let's equal out the amount of arms by providing them to whoever wants them in that region. If they happen to use them to shoot on us, we just shoot back.
And yes, we could put an end to this by not getting involved and not providing weapons and let them slug it out amongst themselves.
But we have to make sure we do not kill our own business interests in said region, and as such it's to our benefit to keep the conflict fueled as much as we can, without making it to obvious.
At least even you don't have a clue as to what it is you post anymore
I know very well what I post, you just have trouble grasping the meaning.
Ummm...yeah, that's it...
See how easy it is to admit the truth?
