It’s payback time for Iraq

In Sept. 11, 2001, America was rudely awakened when Iraqi terrorists sent suicidal jets to America and destroyed the World Trade Center and other buildings, but it did not stop there. Many human lives were lost.

I am thankful we captured Saddam Hussein, but we need to capture Osama bin Laden and other terrorists in Iraq and Iran. We have been rebuilding Iraq and Iran at our expense as well as our own country, and to the best of my knowledge Iraq and Iran knew about the terrorist problem but was afraid to come forward instead of taking responsibility and fighting back, back in the early stages of terrorism.

Iraq and Iran have also been price gouging the world when it comes to crude oil and heating oil, Iraq owes America at least $1 trillion, and this is my plan for solving our financial crisis. It’s payback time Iraq – pay us back.
