Read it and weep: The Three Trillion Dollar War. The Iraq war has already cost us more than the twelve year Vietnam war and twice the cost of the Korean war.
The Bush tax cut, shoddy reporting, a timid congress and a huge real estate bubble lulled Americans into a stupor while our future was being flushed down the toilet. If pro-war McCaine wins the election, I'm outta here.
US infrastructure both old (highways, bridges) and new (broadband, fiber) is long overdue for an upgrade relative to our aspirations and size. Our primary and secondary schools are obsolete.
Imagine what that wasted money could do for infrastructure, schools, job retraining and healthcare. We are spending $12 billion a month. Let's shut this war down now!
The crazy thing is that besides this horrific financial loss (and carnage let's not forget), we are less safe from a military standpoint. Way too many of our troops and military hardware are in Iraq. This leaves us unable to respond to other legitimate threats.
Someone please pull the plug on the outdated and, as far as I can tell, greedy and malevolent leaders responsible for this mess.
