    It’s no wonder that we have spent way too much money on funding the so-called war in Iraq, and so-called “War on Terror”! All this is just another political theatering from Obama like Bush, and it’s just a phoney draw down of all combat troops!

    I read the other day in the paper that we gave $1.9 million dollars in computers to Iraqi school children that were stolen and auctioned off for $45K. I flip the page, and the article says the local community college is having cutbacks because they were refused a $2M grant. This whole war is wrong on so many levels.

    I bothers me that so many people do not either care or understand the current situation. And worse, if they do understand and are still either apathetic toward or even support these policies.

    Thank you all for these thoughtful responses. It appears I was too quick to judge Ron Paul and make such claims about him. Based on your descriptions, I think I need to learn more about him, and that is why I will go through more of his videos.

    And everyone fails to realize also that these ridiculous salaries are all TAX FREE as well. So that $100,000 someone is making over there simply driving a truck (not unlike your stereotypical trucker here in the US) is closer to the equivalent of making $180,000 over here!

    On another note, the military folk I’ve spoken with (who must remain nameless) have informed me that the remaining forces in Iraq are being advertised as non-combat, but the mission is far from over. Apparently the non-public plan, so I’m told, is to be there for at least another 15 years. There is plenty going on that is not being made aware to the public. I wish I could say more, but I fear for my life.

    Eight years in Iraq for a n illegal, immoral war. Ten years in Afganistan same thing. Now they say we need to keep our troops there to train their armies. If they can’t be trained in ten years, it means they don’t want us there. Our CIA and NSA are hellbent on destroying these poor people. Karma is a bitch. America has paid a huge price. Read Co. Fletcher’s, The CIA and the Kennedy Assasination. These wars are for the military/Industial Complex…Money. They are control freaks.

    It sounds to me like Ron Paul hates America? Why can’t he be FOR America and FOR our troops instead of being AGAINST it? Why does Ron Paul want to destroy America?

    I think the real mission in Iraq was to establish a central bank, which was done in 2004.

    Ron Paul Stated that “”Of course the number of private contractors who perform many of the same roles as troops, but for a lot more money, is expected to double.”"

    Ron Paul is Right and here is why. A US green card holder or naturalized citizen from Iraq can get up to $179,000 (Job advertising agency).

    http://www.jobline.net/jobiraq1.htm
    “”All the jobs are outstandingly well paid with salaries ranging from $ 60,000 to $ 175,000 a year, depending on age, qualifications and experience. in addition there are costs of living allowances and free transport from the USA, there and back.”"

    http://www.rense.com/general46/hal.html
    the pay continues up the scale upwards to $250,000 per year for other jobs working for KBR

    While a US combat soldiers get $7.50 per day and 225 per month

      This says we still have bases in Germany. US Citizens are paying for military bases all over the place.

      Not sure if I’m reading your comment correctly, as I cannot intone your intent, but if you’re implying the US has no bases in Japan or Germany, need I remind you of the whole controversy about moving a US base from one end of the island to the other is what resulted in the ouster of the Japanese prime minister earlier this year.

    MISSION FAILED: Obama has broken promises more than an old lady breaking her hip. The war on Afghanistan is going to get an F-. Even if the war has been finally won by some miracle (which there is 100% doubt that will ever so happen) the economy will still be in shitzone. Why are we killing muslims while we are spending tax dollars doing so in the middle east?! We should be drinking tea with them! This is why you shouldn’t vote people from Harvord or Princeton.

    Dr, Paul is a consistent and brilliant man whose patriotism is true. Not a Sunshine Patriot or an attention seeking goof. America’s greatest hope, our guy on the “inside” of our oppressive Congress fused with large corporations and fascist elected officials.
