|Cost of the Iraq War|
(Brussels Tribune, March 27, 2013)
According to those close to General Powell the celebrated military commander of the 1st Iraq War, Powell said "Three trillion? I heard $1.7 on CNN and FOX! That means that had we just paid $200,000 for every dead Iraqi it would have cost $290 billion dollars, not $3 trillion! xxx xxxx xx! xxxx xxxxxx xxxxxx xx xxx!"
"I know that this bill....the 'Last Clear Chance To Do No Harm Bill' is too conservative and sensible for some who think that the world is best left to free wheeling and dealing or for lawyers who make their living off of conflicts. They want the rule of law, but laws that promote domestic and international warfare. But you have to break some eggs to make an omelet, which is what will happen to Iraq after Halliburton is finished fracking the hell out of it. So then, you make people carry insurance. We can call it the 'Omelet Bill'," Powell is reported to have said as he was leaving his therapist's office where he is being treated, along with Condoleezza Rice, for acute Stockholm Syndrome.
