The Cost of War is a hard figure to come by. Some say the U.S. will spend 100 MILLION in Iraq and 100 MILLION in Afghanistan today September 1, 2009. Some say much more when you figure the care of the wounded and mentally disabled soldiers returning from the battlefields.
Please take the time to Go Here: Cost of War
You can put in your state and see how much it has cost your state since 2001 to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. You can even put in your CITY and see how much it cost your city to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Give it a try. This is why the libraries are being shut one day a week, and some City Halls are being shut one day a week, and other state agencies, like the Dept. of Motor Vehicles, etc.
This week, we will hear the call for more troops for Afghanistan. We will be told we must defeat the Terrorists there so they don’t come here (heard that one before?).
There is no WINNING through our presence there. We, the U.S. government and our states and cities and our people are all going broke supporting the EMPIRE. Bring home our troops home NOW, no more funding. Send an email to your Congress Member or Senators from this link PLEASE.
