Let's play Pay for your Occupation!

That's right! For the low, low price of millions a month your nation can enjoy the following amenities:
  • The constant fear of dying by small arms fire, cluster bombs, white phosphorus, random mortar shells, and a host of other grisly products of the U.S. military-industrial-complex.

  • The ability to be abducted and tortured (er, sorry, harshly interrogated) for months on end.

  • The right to hand over all rights to your natural resources to transnational corporations.

  • The outright destruction of all important infrastructure and most housing.

  • Mass unemployment with the added feature of harsh anti-union laws.

  • The freedom to leave your lifelong home and join the millions of unemployed refugees either in camps in neighboring nations or within your own borders with no hope of ever returning home. For no extra cost, learn to fear your neighbors of decades as part of a colonial style divide an conquer scheme.

  • An added benefit of tons of radioactive depleted uranium littering your entire country.

  • Occasional and infrequent access to clean water, electricity and other necessities.

All these and so much more, courtesy of Senate Democrats!

One wonders if Rumsfeld and his fellow war criminals had this mind when they were claiming their war of aggression 'would pay for itself.'
