Pentagon’s urging, President George Bush created a new State Department
office for civilian stabilization and reconstruction missions. He
directed that office to create a Civilian Response Corps (CRC) so the
president can mobilize trained civilian volunteers the way he already
can mobilize volunteers for the military reserve. President Barack
Obama is supporting this effort, and the Corps will receive $323
million if Congress approves the budget Mr. Obama submitted last week.
You mean the kind of reconstruction missions you and your pals Wolfowitz and Perle opposed while you were trying to hand the country over to Ahmed Chalabi?
has fallen to U.S. military personnel. In Afghanistan and Iraq, for
example, American soldiers and Marines have had to organize municipal
governing councils, arrange for basic services (such as electricity),
and manage hospitals. These tasks divert the military from its core
combat-related missions and could be better done by skilled civilians.
Like those Blackwater/KBR/Halliburton fellows!
Pentagon to lend State a number of planners, especially some with
experience in managing the military reserve.
BWAHAHAHAHA. Yes, because the Pentagon planners did such a bang-up job providing for the reconstruction of Iraq after we blowed it all up. Let’s get those guys on the case.
