$11 Trillion--The True Cost of the Iraq War

The Worldwide cost of the Iraq War is $11 Trillion Dollars.

The costs to the United States is $3 Trillion Dollars.

It's all detailed in the book, “The Three Trillion Dollar War: The True Cost of the Iraq Conflict” by noted economists Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes.

As Robert C. Koehler stated, "
If we truly face up to what we’ve done, we’ll never go to war again."

Now think about our three current Presidential contenders. McCain and Clinton are definitely more trigger happy than Obama. It's time for a President who is not so quick to use the military to resolve conflicts and will use our military only when it is absolutely necessary....

Our President outsourced the war to lawless mercenaries who raised a stink in the world’s nose, and lost us most of the friends we used to have. These and all the support contractors are costing us Trillions (with a ‘T”). Focusing on foreign wars meant Bush was not watching the domestic economy, and it has spiraled out of control. We need a leader who can put the country back together.
