Speak Up: War -- what is it good for?
Saturday, November 18, 2017
War is the biggest cost to the U.S. Treasury and there is nothing else that really comes close to it.
We spent $2 trillion in Iraq alone. We spent probably a trillion to blow up Iraq and another trillion to put it back together.
How insane is that?
The entire food stamp program is not even $100 billion and that is only one-tenth of a trillion.
I don't know how much we have spent in Afghanistan. Probably another trillion and we have nothing to show for it.
It is just a lot of money down the rat hole.
