So, if you haven't apologized for supporting that war, and calling people who opposed it, like me, a traitor, then here's your chance for a little soul searching. Since most of you warmongers also happen to be deficit hawks, except for Dick Cheney who famously said deficits don't matter, maybe you'll take a look at the new report from Costs of War.
Total US federal spending associated with the Iraq war has been $1.7 trillion through FY2013. In addition, future health and disability payments for veterans will total $590 billion and interest accrued to pay for the war will add up to $3.9 trillion.Add it up, warmongers, if your math skills will let you. That's a total of $6.2 Trillion for the boondoggle you helped lie us into. And you assholes have the balls to bitch that Obama, who has lowered the deficit every year since he got in office, and almost halved it now, is a profligate spender? Wow. Just wow.
See, at this point, if you still want to defend the Iraq War, then I have two things I can think of to say to you. One, please, keep talking, wingnuts. And two? Fuck you. Just fuck you and the Supreme Court you and the traitors Bush and Cheney rode in on.
