Floating Windmills


How many of these would $1 trillion buy? Would buying them turn other countries against us? Would they bring down the cost of oil? Would they put less money, especially less U.S. money, in the hands of dictators? Are ideas like this smart ideas compared to invading Iraq?

Here is a question for you truth handler.

How much has the Iraq war cost?

How much has the stock market increased since Feb 2003?

How much has GDP increased since 2003?

I'm not sure what your point is. Is it one of relative size? If so, then I believe $1 trillion is a lot of money, even relative to our economy and our stock market.

I think you are correct to look at things in a relative light. You should look at the relative value of the Dollar. You should look at the performance of the U.S. stock market over the past couple years relative to foreign stock markets. You should also look at the U.S.'s stature in the world relative to other nations, including those nations which purport ideologies very opposite of our own.

Our current foreign policy has a price much higher than the financial costs of the Iraq war. A price our children and grandchildren will be paying for.

My point is that the war has been inexpensive relative to our GDP and stock market growth.
