Exactly Why Are We There Again?

Rebuilt Iraq Projects Found Crumbling - New York Times:
"In a troubling sign for the American-financed rebuilding program in Iraq, inspectors for a federal oversight agency have found that in a sampling of eight projects that the United States had declared successes, seven were no longer operating as designed because of plumbing and electrical failures, lack of proper maintenance, apparent looting and expensive equipment that lay idle."

So it's not to make a stable nation out of Iraq, apparently. I mean, if even your "successes" are washouts (7 out of 8 times, and this is in the "stable" areas), then don't you think it's time to cut your losses and get the hell out of Dodge? But not the Commanderin' Chimp. Hell, if we just hang in there another four, maybe 40, years, it's just got to get better eventually, right?

And after all, the contractors are still getting paid, and isn't that what's important?

GET OUT! NOW! WE ARE ONLY MAKING THINGS WORSE FOR THE IRAQIS AND OURSELVES BY BEING THERE! GET THE FUCK OUT!
