Okay, let me see if I’ve got this straight:
- In order to avoid real protest against an unnecessary war, the Neocons decided that they had to avoid a draft at all costs, because a draft would cause Americans to actually pay attention to what is going on. In other words, the Neocons couldn’t have gotten away with such a crazy war if Americans were getting drafted (they learned that lesson from the Vietnam war)
- So the government has instead had to pay tremendous sums to mercenaries from Blackwater and elsewhere
- That’s why the war will cost over $3 trillion dollars
- Which, in turn, has destroyed our economy
Did I miss anything?
