The Three Trillion Dollar War (and still counting!)

Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel prize winning economist tells us, via the Australian (US newspapers just can't be bothered?) that the Iraq War has cost us Three Trillion dollars - so far. I suppose it's all just funny money, but it's not all that funny. And as the business dudes always ask, "what's the ROI?"

Well, you've got death, destruction, detention, pain, maiming, hatred, physical and psychological distress, crushed lives, dead children, massive collateral damage...

The people who dreamed up this little adventure have lots of "splaining" to do. "Staying until we finish the job." Madness of the highest order!

UPDATE: And some people take this dude seriously. He's been in the Senate a long time...one really starts to wonder about the Senate!

UPDATE #2: I think this ad from the H. Clinton campaign is supremely silly. I know they are scratching their heads trying to come with an angle to stop the Obamamentum, but this ain't it! Who will answer the call at 3:00 a.m.? Sheesh!
