I guess I was stretching the meaning of "value" to its economic sense, in that -- "value added", or as Pat Summerall might say, to its "True Value".
Maybe, we should develop a law where we would need to apply for a permit for war. And one of the center pieces of information that we would need to show up front is the "Valuation".
So, Mr. Bush, you say your war is valued at upwards of $300 billion. I think your "plans" are a little skimpy on details. And I think you need to revise them such that there's no demolition of anything, and that you've maximized the safety aspect, so that no one dies or is maimed.
Plus, I think you need better architects. These guys you're relying on are going by some way outed "code" (of justice).
And your contractors, Blackwater, are on the government's shit list.
And if you can't get buy-in from the world community at the various public comments, you will not get passed "go".
Which way is up?
