So, maybe it was 3 tons of explosive, maybe it was 377 tons. Point is, under the Bush administration's micro-management, US forces moved in to secure Iraq's oil fields, and ignored securing the dangerous weapons from falling into the hands of terrorists. Call me crazy - but wasn't keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of terrorists the reason Bush claimed we were invading iraq?
Of all the critics of Bush's war of choice, this event has been the most revealing of why Bush insisted on invading Iraq, and why everything has gone so horribly wrong.
To you Bush supporters who still champion the war effort for all the good it's done - it's high time you realized that Bush never shared your priorities. We live in fear not because of terrorists, but because of the Bush administration's handling of terrorist actions.
What I find most frustrating is that the wars we are usually fighting are over the remaining land, water, and energy resources left. Yet, fighting these wars costs us unimaginable amounts of these ever depleting resources as well.
It's as if, after seeing a possible end to humanity in the distant future, our leaders have decided to RACE to that end with as much violence as possible.
There's no excuse for this. Hard times do not call for desperate measures -- that's a lazy and unimaginative view. Hard times demand cooperation.

It all started three years ago on deviantART. [link]
A project to bring the federal budget to the people that pay for it.
Gaining momentum on deviantART [link] and then blossoming worldwide, Death and Taxes: 2008 is culmination of months of work and years of refinement.
It is the 2008 Federal discretionary budget of the United States. is a representational poster of the federal discretionary budget; the amount of money that is spent at the discretion of your elected representatives in Congress. Basically, your federal income taxes. The data is from the President's budget request for 2008. It will be debated, amended, and approved by Congress by October 1st to begin the fiscal year.
The poster provides a uniquely revealing look at our national priorities, that fluctuate yearly, according to the wishes of the President, the power of Congress, and the will of the people. If you pay taxes, then you have paid for a small part of everything in the poster.
So now you know what you've paid for, the next question to ask, is why?
Spread the word! This is a poster of your near future!
Topluluğun üyesiyim bir süredir ve heyecanla da takipteyim. Tershane ölümlerine dair yazdığım bir şiir vardı. Eğer beğenip deviation olarak koyarsanız, "yaşasın benim de çorbada bir tuzum oldu" der ve sevinirim...
