    How much has the Iraq war cost us??

    I'd like to know how much of our money...yes your's and my money has Bush blown with this war?? He's the worst President we have ever had and will be the main reason Obama wins...people don't think a Republican is fit to be President right now...no matter what MS61853 says, he can post 50 threads a day, doesn't change the fact we are throwing billions of dollars for a war that accomplishes nothing. Liberty for Iraq ?? They don't want to live like us and hate us, think anyone of us can walk down the street there at night?? We have problems here..can we finally work on fixing this country before another countries mess?? Bush was clueless before 9/11....clueless after Katrina...clueless on Iraq...and clueless on the economy...anyways, after seeing my net worth tumble to shit but AIG fukkers go on a 400k retreat, I'm pissed off...that's my rant for today....

    Yes it has...it could be used to pay down the debt...fix things in this country that need to be fixed...possibly have an emergency fund for the same we are doing now with the bailout...already could have been prepared for this we are experiencing...where will they get money if we are attacked right now or a natural disaster hits?? We have no reserve plans that I know of...

    According to a Nobel-winning economist, about 3 trillion when all is said and done, including the extended care for wounded and traumatized vets.

    The old Romans bankrupted themselves with senseless expansion (imperialism), so did the Brits, so did the Soviets.

    Our turn now.

    Ironically, in Sadaams's final interview before his execution, he thought this very fact would ultimately keep him in power. He thought we wouldn't remove him from power because we knew we would bankrupt ourselves. I guess we proved him wrong. Was it worth it?
