Coalition of the Pissy

T-bogg says he hates to join the Coalition of the Pissy. But he joins on his own free will.

Is Iraq better off now than it was before? At the moment, yes. Will it be better off after the US Corporations finish acquiring all the Iraqi assets and have their own little colonial empire to bleed dry under the protection of a puppet military and private "security forces"? Nope. History and time don't stop with this moment, much as the warbloggers would like to believe.

The exploitation of the Iraqi people is over. Let the new exploitation begin...

Hey, T-bogg. I know you hate me because I left the left. But you're part of the reason I left the left. I used to miss it, but comments like yours make me feel a whole lot better about my decision.
