The Cost of the Iraq War

Today's Democracy Now featured an interview with two leading economists (available at http://www.democracynow.org/2008/2/29/
exclusive_the_three_trillion_dollar_war) about the cost of the Iraq War.
According to the report, they say that the cost of the war is around 3 trillion
(THREE TRILLION) dollars. Yet, the Bush Adminstration says otherwise.
Public information available reflects that the cost of the war is "off budget". But, this is staggering and sad!!! As the money is being spent and we're being fed what a friend of mine once called happytalk, the local school district in Orange County, California, has just adopted a tenative budget that cuts 21 million dollars from the budget. What is our priority?

George W. Bush does not have to worry about anything. He's already set. But what about the rest of us who have to be faced with the challenges? When I hear such stories, I am convinced that George W. Bush is probably the worst President this country has ever seen. I can't wait to see the back of him.
