Dripping With Irony: U.S. General Says Some Iraq Insurgents Care About Money

U.S. General: Many Insurgents in Iraq Paid – Yahoo! News

This has got to be one of the most ironic war coverage pieces I’ve read since the whole mess began.

“Many insurgents conducting attacks in Iraq are primarily motivated by money instead of ideology, and can receive $150 for setting a bomb and more for other types of assaults, a top U.S. general asserted Tuesday.”

When more then half of the U.S. population thinks money and economic concerns were the primary motivator for the war this doesn’t make us look any better.
