The occupation of Iraq will cost $3 trillion, America's most expensive conflict since WWII.
Can YOU spend that money better?
Here's your chance to go on a virtual $3 trillion shopping spree and prove it!
Browse our online store, fill up your cart, click the checkout button, and send virtual gifts to everyone you know.

A private island fortress? Healthcare for all? Anything you can imagine, and if you can't find it, add it yourself!

I have not tried spending it yet but will enjoy the thought. Hope others will try it out too.

I know of a group that decided that everyone was a terrorist and spent about that much either trying to prove it or doing their best to turn innocents into terrorists. Just for fun, lets call them the b*shkabarians.

The problem is it was only a means to an unstated end. Their stated end was to stop terrorism; their actual goal was to line their own pockets with the $3,000,000,000,000 without doing anything to actually earn the money.
