The Iraq War - Where is the money?





The Iraq War – Where is the money?


On a recent Vice-Presidential debate between Gov. Sarah Palin ® and Sen. Joe Biden (Dem) , Sen. Biden reiterated how six years of spending in Afghanistan equates to only three (3) weeks that the United States spends on the Iraq War. Of course if the United States is spending $1M US Dollars a day in Iraq one would reconcile while the hardest recession in the American Economy was brought about. Of course, there are so many reasons that a leading economists can given but the truth is that an average Joe or soccer mom as Palin said is the one who ultimately suffers.

The debate goes on with the lessons of morality in preserving the democratic ideals of the greatest superpower on earth after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. But knowing the American way of life, was there ever a day that Americans did not complain about things. In fact, was this not a way of getting what people wanted by way of complaining about things. Then now, when poverty sets in as a cost when is complaining about enough in the ideological American way of thinking.

We can perhaps go all over the excuses of why the money run out through Iraq but the truth is Americans did allow such events to unfold. The reality is that it will take years before a complete total troop’s withdrawal is finally made and meantime what happens to the America?

There had been so many countless books written about this war, Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, the Commanding Generals of the US Army and the contracts awarded to big companies yet there seems to be not a lot information of the specifics of how, when, where and actual disbursements were made. Of course, one should expect the Bush administrations response of “for national security” specifics cannot be elaborated but when the pointing fingers is done it’s seems to be down to the penny

As the economic recession worsens, the expects will greatly impact the next generations to come as without knowing they are already in so much trillions of dollars in debt. History will be written in many generations about the War on Terror, Iraq War or the George Bush War on Saddam Hussein. I guess, one of the hardest part of writing books is stating the truths and facts while thinking how people will be psychologically affected on what a writer writes about.
We all know where the money went but the average Joe does not know how it was spent, how much spending on a day, a week, a month (in true facts) but we do know that the money is gone, and we do know that what has happen cannot be undone
