Imagine that?

How can this be in the death, chaos, civil war, violence, destruction that is Iraq?

Of course, none of the above is true anymore, is it? Even though the Left would like people to believe all is lost there.

Amazing what Bush has helped to create over there; a democracy smack-dab in the middle-east, a stabilizing presence for years to come, a people no longer in fear of a murderous dictator.

Who could be unhappy with such a thing?

Wonder who the primary investors are. Any data on that?

Most likely, the usual suspects.

Again, for whom? The usual suspects?

Whoever is betting on Iraq is most likely betting on a continuous U.S presence.

Not so sure I want to pay for it.

You are witnessing, how World war 2, got us out of the depression. It wasn't Keynes.
It is classic Adam Smith, the rebuilding of financial infrastructure.

If 9-11 would have resulted in us having a great stock market, would you have supported it?
