"That's how much the US is paying each month to fund the wars in Afghanistan and
Iraq, with most of that - $10 billion - going to Iraq. The GOP couldn't find
money to address the health care crisis nor was it financially possible to take
action against global warming but somehow funding a war against Iraq, which had
no connection to 9/11, was possible. Worse still, the earlier predictions for
spending were not even close."
One can't help but think what ways that money could have been better spent.
