The Cost of War

Endless carnage in Iraq: $456 billion and rising.

Cost of eliminating starvation and malnutrition: $54 billion a year.
Cost of a year of primary education for every child on earth: $30 billion.

So, this shameful war could have fed and educated the poor of the world for over 5 years. But, you know, at least Bush is pro-life...

Not to mention the crumbling American infrastructure with its Stone Age power grids, oil refineries, bridges, etc. The current cost of rebuilding it is estimated at well over a $trillion$. Total inattention to all domestic problems is obviously a huge win for the Conservative agenda.
