Got a mini rant here... forgive me

I am the first guy in his chair at the "Tell Mean Spirited Jokes About Bush" convention, and I have written voluminously about the folly of the process that lead to war in Iraq... but I gotta say the train has left the station on the whole slagging the Reconstruction process thing. The notion of "The Spoils Of War" was not invented by Bush... let alone by America, and it's not going to go away because a bunch of tree huggers piss and moan about it. The news in Canada has had a bunch of limp wrists picking their boxers outta their cracks because Canada is being told to stuff-it in the big reconstruction contract zone and I think that's total crap. Not being excluded... It's total crap that people are bitching about it. Our government chose to stay out of the battle... we kept our minimalist armed forces out of the war so why the fuck are we bitching about not getting to share in the spoils? Talk about having your cake and wanting to eat it too. I remain sickened by the fact that global strategies demand western nations run around playing good cop / bad cop with the totally brain dead social structures in the most backwards-ass parts of the world imaginable. Let 'em burn for all I care... I'd rather see the money being spent on building proper schools and paying teachers proper salaries... I mean... "good school for my kids" on the one hand... and, those same kids "dead in a foreign desert" on the other. No frigging contest. However, it is an entire truck load of "more complicated than that" and people need to get a handle on the fact that they are not going to ever really understand the truths behind the masks that global politics fashions out of facts. Hell, I remember being slagged in my journal for saying the war was really about Oil and getting rid of the Dick-tater was just gravy. Look around people... money on the scales that we can't even really understand has everything to do with the spoils of war... it always has. Stop bitching about it. Have you volunteered at the local public school lately?
