So, I'll pose another question should you choose to respond to either, be my guest. But, I stand by my original questions, however rhetorical they may be, as good ones to consider...perhaps for the time when some one tries to collect on the OBL offer.
With out further ado, here's a substitute question for the weekend:
- Is the Rerturn on Investment - the killing of Zarqawi - worth the outlay (Count KIA GIs, Dead Civilians, bribes paid out, whatever you like...), given that the end result is unknown (bear in mind that it may be the unknown unknows that eventually kill us)?
After blogging a bit myself and reviewing some of the writing on the killing of Zarqawi, it occurred to me it would be interesting to hear what others might think of a couple of related scary questions. So, I thought I would pose them to the blogisphere over the weekend so y'all could have at it. Let's call this....drum roll, please:
Windspike's Scary Questions for an Otherwise Sedate Weekend
- What will the W, Rove and Co. do when the person who wins the 25 million dollar reward for going Benedict Arnold on Zarqawi starts using that cash to build better IEDs to aim at our troops, or us on American soil for that matter?
- Where did that cash reward come from in the first place, and how much will it ultimately cost the American Taxpayer?
- Was this reward some kind of grand ploy to seed more insurgents to keep the "war on terror" going...ramping up to just before the November elections?
