Have a Coke and Some Torture!
It had to happen, but everytime we invade another country illegally, we set-up Coca-Cola and/or Pepsi bottling-plants. But this time, it's different. The plant is the investment of a Dubai-based clan/company, yet-again. You think El Prez has some deep-ties with Dubai? You think? I dunno. George W. Bush could tell his average-supporter all of this, then a 'liberal' could say the same-thing, and they would say it was a lie. We've lost it as a culture, but maybe we never had it. Before any infrastructure is repaired--or built where it never was--we get a Coke-plant, how ripe is that? Now, it appears that the US military also provides business-security for nations that fund terrorism, not just for lawless oil-companies. I was watching the Vietnam-era documentary, 'Hearts and Minds' recently, and you can see the same cronyism. If you wanted to find one-word that will sum-up the Bush administration in 20-years, it is that word. Welcome to the 21st Century (becoming more like the 19th), we'll be lucky to make it out alive as a species. Thanks for tolerating-it, thanks a lot.
