That’s a big number right? Yeah, that’s how much U.S. taxpayers will spend fighting “the war on terrorism” in Iraq by 2017. F that. Not only is that an INSANE amount of money to spend on a ridiculous war, it’s not even real money! It’s borrowed! Here’s what Reuters reports:
“Finance charges for the money already spent on the war will total $415 billion from 2001 to 2017, according to CBO. For the next decade, ‘interest outlays would increase by a total of $290 billion over that 10-year period,’ CBO told the House Budget Committee, which is reviewing long-term war costs.”
It’s really time for it to stop because I’m already having enough trouble getting ride of my own credit card debt…I don’t need unjustified debt brought on by a cheeseball president too.
