I missed this when it came out so it’s not new information. Just in case you also missed it:
Nobel Laureate Joseph E. Stiglitz and Harvard budget expert Linda Bilmes plan to present this week a paper estimating the cost of the Iraq War at between $1-2 trillion. This is far higher than earlier estimates of $100-200 billion.
And this from the comments:
But don’t worry,
the reconstruction will pay for itself. I mean, we will be greeted as liberators. I mean, protecting the nation from weapons of mass destruction is worth the cost.
Um…stay the course!
