    Default Bachmann Wants Iraqis To Pay ‘Several Million Dollars Per Life’ For Every American Wh

    Geez. This woman is as crazy as she looks.

    By Ian Millhiser on Nov 13, 2011 at 12:05 pm
    In an interview this morning with Meet the Press’ David Gregory, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) repeated her claim that the Iraq should pay America for the privilege of having their nation invaded and occupied for most of the last decade — and then doubled down by calling for Iraq to pay millions of dollars for each American killed in that country:
    It’s over 800 billion dollars that we have expended [in Iraq]. I believe that Iraq should pay us back for the money that we spent, and I believe that Iraq should pay the families that lost a loved one several million dollars per life, I think at minimum.


    http://thinkprogress.org/security/20...q-pay-us-back/

    There is also a video of her spouting off these ideas.

    Wow, she truly is a wonder.

    Wow. The even scarier part? Donors have given her millions upon millions of dollars to enable her to even run for President.

    Money well spent....

    Why do people even waste their time ripping on this stupid woman? She's got zero chance at being president. The left sure wastes a lot of breath on this idiot.

    Although with this field of crappy candidates, and the fool currently holding office, then you can just take your pick and rip the hell out of any of them. Sad sad situation in this country.

    Romney for President, I suppose.

    :facepalm:

    Not a Bachman fan. But I do think Iraq should pay us back a trillion or so in oil that should then be sold on the open market to pay down the US debt.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    In a perfect world, that would probably happen since the Iraqi's are such reasonable people. But sadly, that wont ever happen. Thats basically saying "Ok Iraq, were calling your tab. Give us a Trillion dollars for invading your country for almost a decade oh yeah and throw in another trillion since we took down Saddam Hussein for you too."

    If anything after we get the fuck outta there, Iraq is going to give us the middle finger and yell "dont let the door hit you in the ass on the way out."

    I didn't listen to the clip, however, I'll say something on the concept:

    You go to war to stop a dictator that keeps starting wars and flouting UN resolutions and win said war. It is then obvious stupidity to then take a portion of existing (and very plentiful resources) from the defeated country in order to at least cover your expenses? Especially when the amount you are going to take are not even a small fraction of what the country will retain after your country recoups all cost?

    Any other non-western country would have secured rights to enough oil to cover the expenses at least. Russia would have done it. China would have done it. Pretty straightforward if you ask me.

    Oh, but dare a US politician even suggest doing such a thing, then it is idiocy. Yeah, right.

    it's kind of different when the country you're "at war" with never attacked your country. This wasn't "a war", this was "an invasion". This is like me breaking into your house, destroying a bunch of your stuff and then asking you to pay for my medical fees because I sprained my knee on the way out.

    Not at all. Geez. You presume complete innocence on the part of the homeowner.

    More like: If you had a criminal breaking into peoples houses nearby. Killing people, and setting fire their assets. And stealing the house next door, only to be removed by force, after getting pleas from the local neighbors to help. The guy sometimes even kills some of his own household to test out some of his weapons. Finally a restraining order is passed by the majority of the people in the neighborhood, only to be ignored for a decade, and for various additional reasons you finally decide to put a stop to this guy. You then take him out, and leave his house and property with his family, but decide to take a small percentage of his assets to pay you back for the expense of having to deal with the problem. The bad guy's family still gets to keep 90% of everything.
