Cost of Iraq, Afghanistan tops $1 trillion

"I think that in general the American people, while obviously this is very difficult financially for us, will continue to support the troops that are there and the Congress will reflect that," Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin said this week.

But with Americans tiring of war and getting more concerned about U.S. indebtedness, political pressures are expected to grow for winding down U.S. military operations and their costs in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin: the best possible way to support our troops is to bring them home, right the flip now.

One has to look with disgust at how completely "knee-jerk stupid" Senator Levin believes thinking Americans are.

And thinking Americans, Senator Levin, who love their country and whose taxes pay for these immoral and illegal wars without end have had their eyes opened, forcibly, if you will, by a torrent of credible information you can no longer control.

We know why this government's military went into Iraq; control of the oil for private profit.

We know why this country's military went into Afghanistan; installation of the pipelines to control Eurasian oil, and control of the illicit drug trade for private profit.

And Mr. Senator, I would almost be willing to be that there will be, come the elections this year, a furious anti-incumbency backlash for what you and your cohorts in the house and senate have allowed to happen to this country under your watch.

Thinking Americans, Senator, have no illusions about who you and your colleagues work for, and that is absolutely not for We the People; it is for the large corporations who fund you all to keep themselves protected by keeping you in power.
