  1. Breaking news: Hillarious bin-Sadr just chosen for PM job: 😂
  2. Thanks for all you do Yota691. I don't think I'll have all that long, to say thanks. Haha. 😁
  3. If the Iraqi election works out and is fair, maybe they could send some election workers to Pittsburgh in 2024. 😁
  4. The sad part of this story...wasting trillions of tax payer dollars... is what is not being said. About all the Americans that could have been helped, with all those trillions of dollars. And the soldiers whose lives were lost, the wives that lost a husband, the kids that lost a dad. The only "nation building" America should be doing now, is at home. What was it really about? It is mostly rich Americans getting richer, if they own stock in war manufacturers. Crazy. I hope people realize one of the obvious lessons here: As technology spreads around the world, wars are getting harder. I remember reading that in the early 1900s, the British moved into Egypt with a couple hundred soldiers, controlled the whole country. It worked because the Egyptians didn't have guns or telephones. Now America had trouble controlling Iraq because they have lots of weapons, you don't need that much to fight back against even a great army like America has. When America leaves, Saddam 2.0 will take over. They just aren't up to democracy. I thought America learned these simple lesson in Vietnam. I guess not. You can blow the crap out of a country, but controlling it with force? Occupying it? Imposing our values on them? That's a million times harder. Don't bother, especially if it's a country with a very different religion, like Afghanistan. Total waste of time. Oh well, at least I'll make a few million out of this fiasco...President Trump warned us. He did an op-ed in a New York paper, before the war, saying don't bother going to war with Iraq, it's stupid. He told us why. He was right. The American elites didn't listen to him, so here we are, twenty years later, up to our knees in stupid. Never thought I'd make money off the stupidity of the American elite, but now I think that's exactly what will happen. Wish it wasn't so, but I'll take the money. Seriously, Americans are nice people. You sure deserve better leaders.
  5. Good post. My own comment is just as optimistic as yours. My take is that we have entered the "low risk category" of investments. The news has been consistently good, for so long, I don't see any sign this is going anywhere except, a happy ending. Yeah, the risk is long washed out. The risk was extremely high at the beginning. Now I'd rate this investment "very low risk". I know it doesn't seem that way because we have waited so long, but I think it's the truth. The "Promised Land" is in sight, folks. Moses Adam is just taking a break. Pray for him, he's been a very faithful positive leader. This time, Moses will enter the Promised Land!
  6. When it happens, invite your cousins over. Get someone to make up a big banner, with those words on it. Hang it in the living room.
  7. Maybe the Afghan currency is so much over-valued because Joke Biden 🤡 left tens of billions of dollars in first class, very fine American military equipment behind, the Afghans are selling that technology to China our enemy, it's incredibly valuable technology, fortune to be made, the currency market is recognizing all that money...hahah 😁
  8. Total Oil, at the start of the war, they used to hold 25% of all oil leases, under Saddam.
  9. Joe Stalin: "It's not the people who vote that count, it's the people who count the votes." Joe Biden: "I won!" Honestly, looks suspicious. I don't know what happened, all I can say is American elections are fishy at best. Anyone who thinks American elections are fairly counted, should put down the bong.
  10. My guess is Republicans will be unsuccessful in removing Joe Biden from office. But my opinion is that Democrats will be successful in removing Joe Biden from office.
  11. By George!...is an old English expression. It is an exclamation of surprise!....By George, I think you are correct! This will be a time of great "Sorrow"...if you know what I mean. And I think you do.
