... For Operation Shock and Awe. I figure that means I did my part. (Took out pretty much 100% of their offensive capabilities in one day, with very little collateral damage.)

What I remember from "Shock and Awe" was we used a lot of very expensive bomb to blow up empty (except for the cleaning women) office buildings in Baghdad so that we could pay Haliburton an outrageous amount to rebuild them.

Show me one job in the civil sector where you run a department or bureau with 500 employees and make less than $150K.


It looks like the most you can make in Kansas is just over $100K. I worked for the State of Kansas long ago, I left because the pay was so low. I doubled my pay when I left.

The fact that you have a 3G signal doesn't guarantee any minimum performance...

Well it provides for a sort of minimum performance. The wikipedia article to which you linked claims it does anyway.

...I'm laughing at this. Nobody is going to go back, find the former president, put him on trial, say "You did shit during a war while you were president that we should hang you for,"

That never happens to former presidents,

Slobodan Milosevi

It's unthinkable

Charles Taylor

Former presidents are untouchable

Radovan Karadzi

Can't happen to soon I say.
