Staggering Numbers

From this weeks Time magazine:

$500,000 Amount the Iraq war costs per minute, according to a joint analysis by a Nobel-prizewinning economist and a Harvard scholar, who noted that the amount spent on the war each day could pay for health care for 423,529 children.

$50 billion Amount the Bush Administration plans to increase its 2008 budget for military operations abroad.

Are you fucking kidding me? This war is so insanely absurd! I'd rather live with the fear of being attacked by terrorists than continue to see this much money being wasted on killing people and displacing them from their homes. Does it really help us to ruin an entire country, piss off all of our allies and make the people who hate us even more determined?

Come on. Give it up. Let us move on to more important problems!
