Iraq may not be WWII, but it's an incremental and integral part of a coming economic shitstorm - Depression may be a slight overstatement, but maybe not. The Shock Doctrine may well apply to the near-future in the U.S.A.
An FDR approach right now in the USA is needed just to make repairs. It's embarrassing that a technologically advanced country doesn't have its electric lines buried in the ground instead of hanging overhead, for example. Lots of people could be employed just getting that done. But those in power would rather have prisons than full employment which could lead to rising wages.
