How concerned should the U.S. be that Iraq is awarding more than $1 billion in contracts to Iran and China to build power plants?
I find it very troubling, considering all the money we have pumped into their country. -William, Rockford, Illinois
The nerve. Iraqis have the gall to think that Iraq is their country. Ingrates! Smart shoppers though. Halliburton and all the other no bid contractors have failed miserably on building or rebuilding any of the infrastructure they are sucking our money to do. I wouldn't award any contracts to an occupier who is systematically destroying my country. -Allan, San Jose, California
Jack, If that doesn't tell America it's time to pack up and come home, nothing else will. Are you listening, President Bush? -Chaston, Hampton, Virginia
Well, I'm sure glad we can afford it and don't tell me they are using their money. -Walt, Everett, Washington How much does it matter if the Bush administration's appointee to head family planning programs has been critical of birth control?
Appointing Susan Orr goes along with the Bush power elite's plan to keep all poor and lower income women barefoot and pregnant. Sometimes I wonder which century these fools live in. -Kathleen, Ventura, California
How much does anything this bunch of overzealous blowhards has done matter? They have led us on a steady path to the form of government that they profess to be fighting all along. That is a government ruled by religious fundamentalists. And the sheeple just roll over and let them. -Alan
I do not see a problem with having someone with a Christian background being in charge of family planning. Does it always have to be someone who is pro-abortion in charge of family planning? -David
How much does it matter? Bush's pick is like putting Osama bin Laden in charge of the CIA anti-terrorism wing! -Matthew, Wooster, Ohio
Jack, It's huge! Birth control has proven to be quite effective when used properly, and the amount of money spent on preventive measures is much less than what it costs society to have children who are unwanted. -Matthew, Summit Lake, Wisconsin
It makes a former Republican weep. -EJ, Granville, Ohio
