Shouldn't the rest of us Americans be shopping around too?
Okay. We shopped. We bought. And what did we buy? The War on Iraq. "Look what I picked up at the mall today, dear. 2,500 dead soldiers. Oh, and I also got this cute little torture kit too. It's called Abu Ghraib!"
We spent our life savings buying a torture kit? Won't that look nice on the shelf next to the Bible.
That war had better be worth it! That war had better be a good buy. We'd better be getting our money's worth out of that war!
Are we? Face it, guys. We've just spent our life savings on a lemon. We've been had.
PPS: To become an embedded reporter, I need an airplane ticket to Baghdad, a helmet and a Kelvar bullet-proof vest. If anyone has any of the above, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 510-843-0581. Thanks. And, in exchange, I'll bring you back a "Consumers Report" on Iraq.
