iraq was supposed to be easy and cheap, too

Matt Yglesias reminds us of how the de facto Bush Administration told us about how cheap the war in Iraq would be. Remember, the highest single cost expected was to be the paint job we'd have to apply to our tanks after they were stained by all the rose petals the liberated Iraqis would fling their way.

Well, that was wrong, too. As Yglesias reports, this war looks likely to cost us well over one TRILLION dollars -- more than TWICE the cost of the Vietnam war (in current dollars).

So the bull about how the war would pay for itself with Iraqi oil revenues? How the budget to rebuild Iraq would only be $2 billion? Deputy Defense Secretary Wolfowitz saying total costs could maybe be $50 billion? Complete and utter lies.

Hello Don Q and all,

Now for the worst part of this horrendous equation.

Bush, Cheney, and the NeoCons are Vatican operatives hell bent on impoverishing and indebting the USA. Looks like their plans have worked like a charm while the brain-dead American public remains deluded and addicted to money, religion, and politics. Who says you can't fool most of the people, most of the time...

Pay close attention, profundity knocks at the door, listen for the key. Be Aware! Scoffing causes blindness...

Humanity has long been deceived and deluded into thinking that money is a positive means to manage life, societies and civilizations. Chapter 2 of Revelations from the Apocalypse, Volume 1: Here is Wisdom thoroughly exposes the foundational deceptions associated with the concept of money and how it is actually a severe hardship on every aspect of life and every endeavor that must bear the burden of its unnecessary overhead and resulting stifling complexity. Money severely impedes the quality of life, society, and civilization by spawning myriad horrendous side effects (poverty, crime, wars, pollution, waste, greed, stress, etc.) which are all traced directly to its presence, purposeful shortage, and imposed requirement.

Here's a real hot potato! Eat it up, digest it, and then feed it's bones to the hungry...

Money was conceived millennia ago by the priesthood of ancient Babylon to subvert the resources and energies of entire populations for the benefit of a rich and powerful few. Chapter 2 further pierces the ages-old smoke and mirrors surrounding the scourge of money, banking and credit (usury) by exposing their core logic and common denominator math. It exposes the purposeful and well-sculpted math and logic trap imposed upon humanity by the Vatican, its ancient predecessors, and their secret-society cohorts.

It is abundantly clear that imposing money upon the entire world and then forcing people to participate in usury, pay taxes, compounding interest on national debts, and then to struggle their lives away for the sake of money, is extortion and great injustice on a grand scale. To cause suffering and despair for profit on such a grand scale can only be described as abominably evil. The time has finally arrived to demand a full accounting from the Papacy, Vatican, and all of their cohorts and chief supporters. They have no right to cause such overwhelming despair and suffering for millennia. They have no right to deceive practically everyone on such a grand scale. Why do our national leaders conspire with them and participate in such great evil while pretending to serve the Creator? Why do people still have blind faith in such obvious deceivers and their deceptions while they continue perpetrating such widespread and horrendous evil and abominations?

The time has come to wake-up and prove to these duplicitous scoundrels that you are only temporary marks and dupes.
