I suppose that's an easy attitude to have when it's not you, your kids or your friends that are over there getting shot at for the benefit of Halliburton and other crony companies. Maybe if you were of draft age (BTW it's 18-35 now in the legislation that's already in the pipeline, and if you're not connected like Bush was in Vietnam you won't get out of it) you might actually think of what it is you're "spending" that makes it "worth it" to go on such excursions- i.e. American human lives with families and souls. Not to mention the thousands of innocent men, women and children in Iraq that inevitably get killed in an American military intervention and this subsequent occupation. And if you think the draft is unlikely (in the US, obviously in Canada you're safe from it) just remember that's what everyone thought when Roosevelt said our "boys were not going to be sent into any foreign war", and before the Vietnam war. Oh yes, the military culture is different now and depends on the skilled volunteer, not cannon fodder, but believe me after the next "terror" attack on our soil those training systems will kick into high gear and everyone who can't afford to get out of it will just have to pitch in to the war effort. I'm sure there are plenty of BushCo connected companies ready to step up and help train more occupiers for Iran, Syria, or whatever demon the US public come to blame for the next thing, having been shown no credible evidence. And as to the election: The way Bush talks about it is almost comical: "well, I'm not worried about it because we're going to win..." well, do you know something we don't, like maybe how Diebold, the company that makes hackable touchscreen voting machines with no paper audit trail is run by Republican loyalists? Who can make ATMs that don't lose track of a cent but make touchscreens with "proprietary" (not availiable for public review) software that can keep two voting records simultaneously? It would be laughable if it weren't true. I just wish some of the families of those getting killed in Iraq would step up and start holding the lying supporters of the war accountable for murdering their kids; that is, after coercing or brainwashing them into believing they were morally obligated to go there and follow illegal orders from on high. "Hard work," Bush tells us. How the hell would he know?
