This is a website with a constant update on how much the war is costing us. It even has an option to see how much your community is paying. Thought I would share this with all of you wonderful people


costofwar.com...

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed."
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
April 16, 1953

You forget to say this number is based on "ESTIMATES" of congressional "appropriations".

The exact financial cost of a war can not be tallied in real time by a pair of anti war activists using "estimates".

That is why one doesn't want to go to war without a darn good reason.

That is why we have and pay the CIA and Military Intel so much. Oops, money down the toilet there.

Cheaper to wipe your backside with 20.00 bills.

Don't forget the plethora of no-bid Halliburton contracts under the Bush cartel and the Pentagon authority for paying many hundreds of dollars more per hammer than the $8 they are actually worth.

Once again dont forget the fact these are "estimates" by an unbiased group of activists.

And yes MA the cost of rebuilding does cost money, thank you for illustrating that.

The whole hammer scam has been going on long before Bush got into office and it will be there long after he is gone. Those Black Projects cost alot of money
