Does it matter?

Financially, you cannot afford to stay there as long as it will take.

The question then becomes how much of your own money are you willing to throw away before you inevitably leave? Is bankrupting America worth it to you? If so, you may as well stay there for 100 more years.

I think most of your countrymen don't think Iraq is worth their country's financial ruin.

i know, right? that's the big joke. we'd be as bankrupted as surely as the Soviet Union was in Afghanistan.

these Republicans talk tough, but there's no ability to put the money where their mouths are. no one things 100 years in Mesopotamia, some kind of American Empire, is going to be worth the trillions in treasure and the millions in blood.

it's just dick swinging.

Exactly. I think Ron Paul is the only Republican who understands and stresses the financial cost of the war. It seems that John McCain and the other Republicans really don't understand the meaning of "inflation." I don't understand how they want to cut taxes while increasing war spending, which is the biggest type of government spending.

100 years war, at about $100 billion a year, would cost $10,000,000,000,000.
