Regardless of your position of the war in Iraq you cannot argue its expense.
Currency in an incredible amount, and at an incredible rate, is spent to fight a war…physical, emotional, spiritual, and of course actual monetary expense.
To be honest, I think the monetary expense is the cheapest of the four.
It is hard for me to fathom 1 TRILLION dollars…the amount spent on the war in Iraq
An author, who to be fair, is decidedly anti-war, took a year to attempt to quantify the expenditure in Iraq.
He wrote a book called “What We Could Have Done With The Money”
The website is pretty interesting, and helps give an idea of just how much money we are talking about
**especially look at the how you would spend $1,000,000,000,000? link**
