And The Obamessiah probably will

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Iraq's capital wants the United States to apologize and pay $1 billion for the damage done to the city not by bombs but by blast walls and Humvees since the U.S.-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.
The city's government issued its demands in a statement on Wednesday that said Baghdad's infrastructure and aesthetics have been seriously damaged by the American military.
"The U.S. forces changed this beautiful city to a camp in an ugly and destructive way, which reflected deliberate ignorance and carelessness about the simplest forms of public taste," the statement said.
"Due to the huge damage, leading to a loss the Baghdad municipality cannot afford...we demand the American side apologize to Baghdad's people and pay back these expenses."

We oughta tell 'em to go get fucked. War is all about blowing things up, breaking shit, having fun and killing the enemy while keeping our casualties down to an absolute minimum which in urban warfare means constructing blast walls.

Our response ought to be to pack every last soldier and piece of equipment up and leave. Let the ungrateful cock suckers fend for themselves from now on.

That is really fucked up! And you're right, he probably will pay it. I hope it has to go through congress first, maybe enough of them will have the balls to shoot it down.


Eh... that's just wishful thinking.

Why do I have the feeling that he'll cut into our Social Security and medicare to make up the $1 billion... the apology, well, that's a forgone conclusion... we KNOW that's gonna happen! Watching out for his Muslim Brothers! Yo!

The US has a long history of paying war reparations - Look at Japan, Germany and most recently Vietnam.
And I agree with you, Jeff. And while we're at it, remove or destroy every single improvemnet we made to that shithole country.

Maybe they'd prefer Saddam back?

Yeah and we will find an exact copy of Sadam Hussein and return him to "the people" with all his homocidal and barbaric ways. The nerve of them.

Always the victims aren't they? I don't see any of those pullstarts trying to rebuild the twin towers!

We should pack up, blow some shit up and take all their oil. I mean isn't oil what we went there for in the first place? If I remember correctly, that's what the liberals were saying when we went in to liberate this shithole.

As for an apology, we should blow even more stuff up...

So, how would they like that? Small arms fire, cruise missles, or should we just drop off a large, shiny mushroom inducing device?
Really? 1 billion? Why ddn't they ask before? They should have made it clear that they had a price for us liberating them from a savage dictator and his sons. We should charge them for our costs. Ammo:2 billion, destroyed humvees: 2 billion, each drop of US blood spilled on their sand: PRICELESS!

They probably want to get their dollars now, before they're completely worthless!
