Everybody in charge wants to convince we the people that the cost of those wars was insignificant right like the 800 billion dollars that BS websites like "costofwar.com" says is insignificant, but it gives morons like Swampy a somewhat digestible number to throw around. They dont want to see the facts that Bush put the entire worlds economies at stake by starting 2 wars that would have such massive price tags.
Does that figure account for the rearming of our arsenal or veteran disability and long term care?
Costofwar.com is funded by a liberal think tank. It supports many of the same values that you seem to support.
And can you make any real connection between the current world economic situation and the Iraq war?
Our collapse was caused by an artificial real estate bubble that collapsed. I think every president since Reagan can take a little credit for that.
This villianization of Bush over the Iaq war is getting tiresome. We can argue the validity of his reasons for starting the war, but it was not now and will never be a major issue in the history of America.
