Actually the cost, that means expense for you and I, for the Iraq war has now reached into the trillions of dollars. Yes it is in the trillions because we have to add in all the casualty and medical expenses; which we will be paying for years to come. Those costs also include payments to the mercenary army that we hired to help fight that conflict. Perhaps your national pride is preventing you from being objective about what the truths really are. Make no mistake I am not blaming our soldiers, I blame their leaders.
Those business leaders support "The two party political system” so this assures that they, these world leaders, remain in control. Unfortunately there is a whole lot more corruption in these systems then I have time to report on, in this short article. I whole lot more of incompetence for us to pay for, but then that is how their systems tie together to make this small group wealthy and powerful.
