yes dori, how much is enough to line the pockets of the miltary industrial complexes coffers for coffins at halliburton? lotsa cold hard cash to be made in the precious to us but worthless to them comodity that is american soldiers lives.

this invasion is in thge downward death spiral that was predicted by experts who warned bush senior during desert storm in the early 90s. he was adivised that once they had liberated kuwait, which was justified, that to press on to baghdad would result in the likely civil war carnage we are presently seeing take place.

w jr. (small w intentetional to match his intellect) was recruited by cheney, rove, wolfowitcz and the rest of the neocon/nazi cabal to finish the job that bush sr. wisely decided not to do.

the expontential increase of scandal after scandal that is currently exposing this bushicon administration for what it truely is, is quite astounding. how on earth do repug 08 candidates think they can possibly come out on top at the polls in nov? should be a landslide/slamdunk for the dems across the board as they should easily gain control of the white house, a bigger grip on majority power in congress and serve notice to the gop majority on the supreme court that they are on a slippery slope.

yeah dori, how much cash is enough.

How much cash is enough? The people in power now want ALL of it! They would happily put us out on one of those melting ice flows--that is how much they value anyone beyond themselves.

You are right rooster, at least George H.W. knew not to go into Iraq. But then, George W only listens to his father from above...or something like that.

Funny others have that father from above also, but don't hear him saying he left W in charge of the world!

Price Tag for War in Iraq on Track to Top $500 Billion By Ron Hutcheson
McClatchy Newspapers

Monday 30 April 2007

Washington - The bitter fight over the latest Iraq spending bill has all but obscured a sobering fact: The war will soon cost more than $500 billion.

That's about ten times more than the Bush administration anticipated before the war started four years ago, and no one can predict how high the tab will go. The $124 billion spending bill that President Bush plans to veto this week includes about $78 billion for Iraq, with the rest earmarked for the war in Afghanistan, veterans' health care and other government programs.

Congressional Democrats and Bush agree that they cannot let their dispute over a withdrawal timetable block the latest cash installment for Iraq. Once that political fight is resolved, Congress can focus on the president's request for $116 billion more for the war in the fiscal year that starts on Sept. 1.

The combined spending requests would push the total for Iraq to $564 billion, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service.

What could that kind of money buy?


Answer at the link...

What do we value?

What do we value? Fiat currency so China can pick up the bill for the war.

Making money out of nothing- what a racket. Ain't the fed reserve great! Setting us up to bankrupt us and create the ultimate chaos the world needs to tip it over the edge of insanity.

They're taking money from the poor that could solve America's problems and using it to kill more poor people and create more problems. They value the price of the lives the poor have to pay to feed their greed and will to power.

Money makes the world go round Moneymoney money Moneymoney money Moneymoney money That stinking clanking, sound it makes the world go round. Bullshit baffles billions, and kills a lot of them too!!!!
