Cost of Iraq War - Wall Street Crash

Cost of War | National Priorities Project

click here to learn more

www.stopwar.org.uk reveals "The cost of the Iraq war to Britain is estimated to be as much as £10 billion, and the US government spends $10 billion dollars a month on the conflict.

But the cost is substantially more when hidden costs are taken into account. Who pays for after care for injured soldiers? Pensions and injury payments?

Joseph Stiglitz, leading economist and former head of the World Bank, has estimated that the total cost of the war to the US will be $3 trillion and $6 trillion to the world."

Perhaps Sir Bob Geldof should re record his song "I don't like (black?) Mondays" ? - The catalyst for todays Wall Street crash was the growing realization that the Bush administration's $700 billion rescue plan and steps taken by other governments won't work.

I'm not suggesting that the war in Iraq has bancrupted America and potentially all it's allies, I'm sure there are many other factors of Mr Bush's administration that have led to such a financial mess. I mean there's a war in Afghanistan too. The main war has been on the taxpayer a war waged by Bank executives who dished out billions of dollars of bonuses even though they had failed in their jobs and their responsibilities to shareholders.

A society that rewards greed and failure simultaneously has only itself to blame......

Sarah Palin v the polar bear

polar bear vs Sarah PalinSarah Palin v the polar bear: who will survive? | World news | The Guardian: "the right to arm bears" Ha ha ha - Well done Tim Dowling for this (and Jasmijn de Boo from Animals Count for spotting it)- loved this article!

Biggest threat to survival
Polar bear: Sarah Palin.
Palin: Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden, feminism, belated national reality check brought on by global economic crisis.

Surely the US voters are not mad enough to let this gung ho Rambo meets Nania's Ice Queen from The Lion , The Witch and the Wardrobe into the whitehouse??

Sure democracy dictates that the Oil Industry needs it's voice but look what happened when they let George Bush into the Whitehouse - Wars, skyrocketing oil prices, environmental and economic devastation, edpidemic of preventable chronic disease, a plague of GM Soya throughout South America....... Pirates in the Ivory Coast.
