Got an extra $8K lying around?


Because that is the cost to run the war for every man, woman and child in the United States, per the Congressional Budget Office. Per MSNBC:

According to the Congressional Budget Office’s report on the costs of the Iraq War, the $2.4 trillion price tag over the next decade comes out to some $8,000 for every man, woman, and child in the United States. CBO Director Peter Orszag met with some of the members of the House Budget Committee today — 13 of the 21 Democrats, and 3 of the 15 Republicans — with the ominous news that “it’s clear under analysis that the nation is on an unstable fiscal path … with the higher debt and interest costs, is going to cause severe economic dislocation, which are exacerbated by war costs.” Orszag said a big factor in the large price tag is the reset costs. Reset costs originally meant that the money would be spent to return military brigades to the same standing as before they were deployed — i.e. fixing tanks and vehicles, or if irreparable, replacing them with similar equipment.

Bullshit on a stick..thats what this crap is..How much is going to the contractors..lining their pockets my dear reader? Total cost for this debacle: $2.4 TRILLON and counting…

This of course, doesn’t include what it would cost to attack Iran…
