Dear President Bush,
Where was Peter Chiarelli, the military’s #2 man in Iraq, three years ago? His sage advice of putting the young angry men to work would have been most helpful to Paul Bremer, the head of the Coalition Provisional Authority. I recall others suggesting job creation to be a prime initiative as unemployment soared to over 40%.
Well, at least now Peter has his eye on the prize. And Paul already got his award. Let’s just hope it doesn’t end up like Afghanistan, where people illegally cross the border into Iran for work. Ooopss, another similarity between US and Iran, an illegal immigrant problem! What does it mean when people leave a free democracy to find employment in a member of the “Axis of Evil”? Write me back, I want to know.
