 315-billion.jpg

I found this on Crooks and Liars:  This is what $315 billion dollars looks like stacked up…the little dot at the bottom is a car.  The CBO is estimating that the occupation in Iraq may end up costing the U.S. $2.4Trillion.  So now multiply this little stack by 7. FUBAR to the 10th.

  1. Wow, what a waste. But keep in mind that much of the money returns right back into the USA economy. How much I couldn’t guess but every piece of equipment, bullet, bomb, and military paycheck we (the USA) funds goes partially or mostly back to the supplier or to the troops, or contractors. So it’s not all that bad. Actually, it could be worse. What about all the money the US will spend years and years after we pull out, trying to fix and rebuild everything and all the military life long medical bills. Can you imagine that we are still in South Korea spending billions of dollars every year, just in case!
