Beside the enormous expense of this war, would anyone venture how many taxpayer dollars/US deficient debt dollars are being spent to payoff the Iraqi's/Afghan's/Pakistani's/etc. who have claims against the US for lost lives/damaged and destroyed property (add to this all the paid-out American dollars to all the tribal leaders, mid-level foreign bureaucrats, religious leaders, political leaders, and on and on) and how can one honestly not find it ironic that many of the people in our democracy who go apoplectic over tax increase spending proposals for domestic health care, child care programs, increased veteran spending, and social safety net programs raise nary an eyebrow over the massive taxpayer/debt spending dollars sunk into the black hole of this overseas conflict.
