SEARCH BLOG: IRAQ
It appears that Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have come up with a new ploy... through which they hope to ensure defeat in Iraq in the face of recent success... that shows Reid and Pelosi to be the Neville Chamberlains [or Benedict Arnolds] of the 21st century... they will ensure that the military runs out of time and money so that it can't win.
The Pentagon says it will have to cut off civilian contractors in order to fund the war effort unless specific funding for the war is passed.Fine start eliminating those contractors based in Nevada and California... and think about closing some military installations that take up valuable real estate or ocean front and employ a few people in those states. I'm sure that Harry and Nancy won't have a problem with that. For example:
Northrop Grumman of Los Angeles, CA; CEO: Ronald SugarHow about $13 billions for the troops instead? Whaddaya think, Nancy? You certainly wouldn't want the money spent on some civilians in California now, would you?
Military contracts in 2005: $13.5 billion
Total contributions in 2004 election cycle: $1.77 million
Total CEO compensation for 2002-2006: $30,049,800
Products and services: B-2 stealth bomber, amphibious assault ships, training Iraqi army
Can't you hear the porkers squealing already?..
