What we could do with the money tied up in Iraq

Posted by Observo on November 15th, 2007 filed in Politics

The latest war funding request, ostensibly to be approved of before Congress takes their Holiday break, would bring the total spent on GWOT to $611 billion. Up to the fiscal year that ended in October 2007, we spent $455 billion over 55 months. That means we are renting Iraq for about 8 billion dollars a month (that includes the $ for Afghanistan, but this figure is also lower than the average since the surge started). Whether or not we wind up with a more stable Iraq than what existed before Bush undertook this adventure still pretty open, but a very interesting question is “How else could this money have been spent to better secure and advance the American national interest?”

Some astute folks over at the Boston Globe decided to answer this question in a compelling slideshow.

My favorite:

“With $611 billion, you could convert all cars in America to run on ethanol nine times over.”
