In my opinion a good chunk of the fall of the USSR was because they blew there resources and military might trying to conquer and tame Afghanistan. Good thing we won't make that mistake.

Communism (like socialism) takes away the incentive to work (no work, no sweat) resulting in dimished wealth for the state. Capitalism generates much more wealth for the state (via taxes) and individuals by increasing the incentive to work

Y'know, when you put it like that, it now makes a lot of sense why Iraq was invaded in the first place: it was job stimulus program.

and that relates to my comment or your poster in what way?

He's pointing out the futility of make work programs, and feels that most recent wars have been nothing more than make work programs. Although maybe I'm wrong I probably shouldn't speak for other people. But that's how I feel.

Did you not just a**ert that Capitalism creates more incentives to work? A destabilized certainly is a great incentive for work and profit, just as it was before. The term here is Crisis Capitalism, and so you know, this is all germane to your comment.

No, that's what I was saying, what I was saying is that War in Iraq is a great, big ol' Crisis-Capitalist scam, and as a Libertarian, why are you speaking for me? Are you or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?!

*destabilized Iraq
Curlyrocks - October 20, 2014, 5:31 pm,
Because as a libertarian my 2 favorite things are shooting off my mouth and making inaccurate a**umptions about people on the left.
Cannabal - October 20, 2014, 5:33 pm,
Took the outta my mouth. :P

The war in Iraq was just a stupid move by the government and had nothing to do with capitalism. It's like slamming socialism because a socialist president allow the fed to pump so much money into finding out why les***** are fat or wendy davis attacking

greg abbot because he is in a wheel chair.

Neither of which has anything to do with the definition of socialism, but everything to do with stupidity.
Cannabal - October 20, 2014, 6:23 pm,
I'm not sure you're entirely familiar with what the definition of Socialism really is, never mind Communism. And there is nothing more in demand than rockets, bombs, and Petroleum, so a Capitalist affair it most certainly was and still is.
EmmaRoydes - October 20, 2014, 6:52 pm,
Geeze, that's a real tough one. Socialism: a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.
EmmaRoydes - October 20, 2014, 6:53 pm,
Communism? Where did I say anything about communism?
EmmaRoydes - October 20, 2014, 6:56 pm,
Petroleum, you have to be kidding. USGS estimates we have 2.3 trillion barrels in un***ped reserves.

I'm willing to grant that considering all that black gold was bought up by China of all places. But I can't think of any other rationale worth waging a war, especially when the Weapons of Mass Destruction weren't exactly accounted for.
