One Billion Dollars A Week
$1 billion per week. That’s how much it’s going to cost the US Government to fight this war in Iraq. Oh yeah, and according to Newsweek article, “that billion a week is just the beginning. It doesn’t include the cost of running Iraq’s government and rebuilding it, which could be an additional billion a month.” Now does this seem right? With the American economy in the crappers, thinking this money could have been better spent here in the US. Oh, and we haven’t even talked about the number of American soldiers who have and will continue to come home in body bags fighting a war that seem less justified. Does anyone remember Vietnam? Here’s hoping the pessimist in me gets proved wrong about this whole sorted mess. Here’s hoping they find Saddam along with those weapons of mass destruction soon. I really would like to believe in my President again.
