I am opposed to the IRAQ war. The Boston globe over the weekend put up a simple comparison of what the current price tag of the war, at 456$ billion once the current US spending bill is passed, could have bought otherwise. It’s simply staggering to think of how insane it all is.
“According to World Bank estimates, $54 billion a year would eliminate starvation and malnutrition globally by 2015, while $30 billion would provide a year of primary education for every child on earth.
At the upper range of those estimates, the $456 billion cost of the war could have fed and educated the world’s poor for five and a half years.”
