After The War 

The vultures always gather around the body. 
The war in Iraq is not even over yet and the 
worms are crawling out of the woodwork.

Germany, France and Russia are clamoring 
about how they should have a part in rebuilding 
post war Iraq, that they should be included in 
the lucrative construction contracts and reap 
the benefits of a war they tried their 
collective best to prevent.

We've already found evidence of Russia providing 
weapons to Saddam, not that they made a lot of 
difference since they weren't really that effective. 
I've got a sneaking suspicion we'll have the evidence 
before all the chickens come home to roost.

Not only are they demanding a part in the 
reconstruction of Iraq, they are saying that 
the U.S.A. and Britain should take a back seat 
in the efforts. This is just pure audacity and 
arrogance. If it was up to me I wouldn't let 
France, Germany and Russia have the Porta-
John concession.

I think it's time for the U.S.A. to start acting 
on our behalf. We've already moved industry and
jobs out of this country with N.A.F.T.A. and 
other political trade agreements we've made. It's 
time we started looking out for our citizens and 
our allies' citizens.

Iraq was in need of reconstruction before the 
war even started and now much more so, and they 
can pay for it. We saved most of their oil wells 
from being torched by Saddam and we're putting 
out the fires at the ones he did ignite.
Iraqi oil can well pay for what needs to be done 
in their country.

Not only do we and our allies deserve the major 
role in the rebuilding of Iraq and I am not 
talking about revenge, but also there is a very 
practical reason for doing it that way.

We have sacrificed the lives of young men and 
women in the liberation of Iraq. To walk away 
now and turn it over to the ham fisted, politically 
motivated, American hating United Nations, in 
my book, would be to dishonor the memory of 
these brave young people.

Let's face it folks, the United Nations has 
become a cliquish, backbiting society of 
loud-mouthed, eunuchs who won't do anything 
itself and try to thwart the intentions of those 
who desire to.

We have spent billions of taxpayer's dollars 
liberating Iraq and making the civilized world a 
safer place and whether they're willing to admit 
it or not that includes France, Germany and Russia.

The Iraqi people have suffered enough the last 
25 years. They need real help, not bureaucratic 
double talk and red tape. They need action, 
not words.

We desperately need to establish a trust with the 
Iraqis and we can't do it with a gaggle of nations 
who don't trust each other, arguing about who is 
going to supply the bricks and who is going to 
supply the mortar.

It is my firm belief that if there are two people 
working together, one of them has to be the boss
to get anything meaningful done.

I think that the U.S.A., along with Britain and Spain 
should take the leadership role in rebuilding Iraq, 
regardless of what the rest of the world thinks, 
especially if we're going to get it done in this 

Pray For Our Troops.
