50 billion. haha. With the last appropriation bill its going to be over 600 billion. War just doesn’t work economically without the whole ‘spoils of war’ thing to finance it.
Source for this claim please? Seems you are lumping in ALL the war appropriations and blaming it all on Iraq. That is intellectually dishonest.
Yeah, if anyone told Bush $50 billion, they were complete idiots.
911 attack estimated costs were well over a trillion dollars for the US economy.
