    Interesting how "cost" in the story he posted conflicts rather significantly with the "cost" noted in the icon in his signature.

    So, which one is a lie?

    One is the current cost, one is the projected ultimate cost.

    Which would have been clear to you if you had spent 10 seconds reading the post, or if your reading comprehension skills were above 4th grade level.

    Oh, I see... its a "projection", rather than an -actual- number.

    IOW, its made a made-up number based on any nmuber of things that may or many not happen. :rolleyes:

    But, partisan bigots such as yourself dont see how any of -that- matters. :cuckoo:

    Apparently none of you read the article.

    The 3 trillion is the actual current cost, because Bush's numbers don't take into account things such as medical care for US servicemen.

    By the jreeves, what about it exactly is partisan? That you don't like the result and so smear it?

    Are you comfortable spending trillions of dollars on a war that should never have been fought, while never admitting it was a mistake to invade?

    Does this article take into effect the number of jobs the Iraq war has created, does it take into effect the taxes that those new employees paid in federal income taxes, does it take into effect the extra taxes that the military machine in defense contractors pay.....NO to all, that's how its partisan......
