Derisive diatribes about the state of the nation, nation states and swerving leftward

According to the CSM, the price tag for Shrub's War is rising. Iraq has now surpassed $300 billion, according to government estimates, and if we had in the cost of Shrub's miniwar in Afghanistan, the total price rises to around $500 billion, making it one of the most monetarily costly conflicts in U.S. history. When we add the cost of taking care of the war-injured and so on, I'm sure we'll be paying out far more than a trillion in the decades to come. So there's no reason to feel too upset about this. Our grandkids will help share the cost with us.
