Since school age I have believed that you don't just get even you get ahead. If I get punched in the eye then I don't stop till he has two black
eyes. It seemed reasonable and kept others from trying to bully me. I have been a supporter of a strong defense and repay with interest, but I find
the ratio of 3000 to 1 dead is completely ridiculous and should stop at once.
The war on terror has costs the lives of over 900,000 humans in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The blood of the dead is enough to fill 2 Olympic size swimming pools and have enough left over to fill
many hot tubs. We can bathe in the blood of our enemies!
That estimate isn't including the million severely injured.
According to the Center for Defense Information, the estimated cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will reach $1.08 trillion by the end of fiscal
year 2010. That is 3.6 Billion dollars for every single person killed in the 9/11 attacks. And the families weren't properly taken care of!
