In case any of you are interested an excerpt from Joseph Stiglitz new book can be found on the Vanity Fair website.<br><br><a href="http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2008/04/stiglitz200804" target="_blank">http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/f...stiglitz200804</a><br><br>
It appears that the President misunderestimated the cost of waging war in Iraq. Rather than costing the U.S. $50 ~ 60 Billion it will end up costing closer to $3 trillion. $25,000 from every American household.<br><br>
I am not sure what the cost of not invading would have been - maybe that number is unknowable?

<i>for one-sixth of the cost of the war, the US could put its social security system on a sound footing for more than a half-century, without cutting benefits or raising contributions.</i><br><br><a href="http://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/stiglitz97" target="_blank">http://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/stiglitz97</a>

I am waiting for an update on the Brittany Spears situation. This stuff about cost of war is just a distraction.
