You can’t unleash it in the name of sparking an economic boom and then be shocked when Halliburton overcharges for everything from towels to gas, when Parsons’ sub, sub, sub-contractor builds a police academy where the pipes drip raw sewage on the heads of army cadets and where Blackwater investigates itself and finds it acted honorably. That’s just corporations doing what they do and Iraq is a privatized war zone so that’s what you get. Build a frontier, you get cowboys and robber barons.” ~ Naomi Klein

  53. “Quickly capping 363 oil well fires in a war zone is impossible. The fires would burn out of control until they put themselves out… The resulting soot might well stretch over all of South Asia… It could be carried around the world… [and] the consequences could be dire. Beneath such a pall sunlight would be dimmed, temperatures lowered and droughts more frequent. Spring and summer frosts may be expected… This endangerment of the food supplies… appears to be likely enough that it should affect the war plans.” ~ Carl Sagan

The whole point of being in the Army is wanting to get killed, wanting to test yourself to the limits. Now you have to fly 15,000ft above the war zone to avoid getting hit.

They have children and lives, and they have to deal with all of the things that everybody else does.” ~ Tim Daly
  62. “You look at any war zone and you talk to any soldiers and they have to blank out – in order for that to work for them, in order for them to survive they have to blank out something in themselves in order to do it.” ~ David Morrissey
