The $3,850 per second war and its victims


www.reuters.com

Assuming you read at average speed, by the time you get to the bottom of this column, the war in Iraq will have cost the United States another $760,000. More than $4 million of U.S. taxpayers' money ebbed away in the 18 minutes it took George W. Bush to explain to his country and the world last week why the war he ordered would last well beyond his presidency.

holy cow not only are the poor innocents in iraq the victims of this war..

but my american friends are also becoming victims via the tax dollar.




During an eight-hour working day, U.S. tax dollars spent in the battle zones of Iraq total $112 million. These figures are extrapolated from a report by the Congressional Research Service (CSR), a bipartisan agency which provides research and analysis for the U.S. Congress. It put the war's average cost in 2007 at around $10 billion a month.

That translates into $333 million a day, $14 million an hour, $231,000 a minute and $3,850 a second. Even for the world's richest country, this is serious money.



FAMOUS LAST WORDS

"There is a lot of money to pay for this that doesn't have to be U.S. taxpayer money ... We're dealing with a country that can really finance its own reconstruction, and relatively soon," he said on March 27, 2003.


if america dosn't do something real soon you are gonna be in real trouble the knock on effect around the world could be catasrtophic..

Ask yourselves is it worth all this money sounds like an awfull lot for what originally was attempting to find 1 guy in a cave ( yeah yeah WMD but you know what i mean)
