War weary, whip out cash, and dead people

Even I, who thought he’d never grow war weary, at least from opposing them, have become numb to the occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now, people have woken up to the fact that big wars cost big money, not just lots of lives–lives that count far less to some than the paltry tax dollars they may have to pay to support the wars.

The thing that perplexes me most is that these so called wars of nation building were in Iraq and Afghanistan. They were supposed to be the paragons of USA capitalism and democracy? (I won’t stoop so low as to answer that question with an analysis. If you can’t do it for yourself, you are hopeless.)

If you want to know where your money went, follow the dead bodies.
