 Pretend for a moment the war is occurring in a vacuum and we’re not even considering the cost to Iraq and its neighbors.  According to an article published today in New Statesman, the cost for the war and for caring for our wounded and for the tangential impacts, such as the cost of oil, will eventually cost the United States $2.5 trillion!  That’s a lot of cheeseburgers.  The article goes on to suggest that the numbers of wounded flowing through the VA are being “recalibrated” to match Pentagon figures.  Well worth reading:
