I saw a link that said $100,000 a minute? Wow, that's a lot. Can anyone confirm this?

The money isn't the important thing at all, although it's a horrible waste. How many lives are lost there each day? When the answer was one, it was too many!

All wars cost a lot. But should we have stopped fighting the 2nd World War or the Korean War or the Vietnam War because of the cost? So should we have said when the Iraqi people ask for help, or in Canada's case, the Afghan people, say, "No! because of the enormous cost to our economy and our young men dying." So if all America and the other country;s men come home, and then the Iraqis face an evil greater dictator than Hussein, do you just say 'too bad. You deal with it." And what if that dictator is like Hitler and takes over the whole middle east? Here is a link I found http://zfacts.com/p/447.html It would be easier to give the Iraqis the money, true, but the States have to decide who to give the money to and with its former experiences, they would be reluctant to. After all, that person might decide to make himself as dictator of Iraq, just as others have. In other words, he might pretend to be a friend of the United States, but secretly work behind their back because of his evil intention. So with that in mind, would it not be best for the troops to stay in the States until they have established a democracy and fight off the terrorists?
