Great article on how America has single handedly caused the spike of world oil prices in the past and indirectly Yankees line the pockets of Middle East dictators, and how Wars DO NOT stimulate the economy.
You mean to tell me a billion dollars a day is better spent in IRAQ then in America on consumption or job creation or, etc.?
My favorite quote:
Moreover, money spent on the Iraq war does not stimulate the economy today as much as money spent at home on roads, hospitals, or schools, and it doesnâ€t contribute as much to long-term growth. Economists talk about â€œbang for the buckâ€ â€“ how much economic stimulus is provided by each dollar of spending. Itâ€s hard to imagine less bang than from bucks spent on a Nepalese contractor working in Iraq.
