This guy did some number-crunching, and made a list of what could be done with the USD$1 trillion spent in Iraq. Some of it is kinda interesting (buy every person on the planet an iPod), but there is some that's striking (set up every child born in the US, starting now, with Social Security benefits when they're 65).

That's what the article said. It started by saying stuff like iPods for everyone, or paving every highway in the US with 23.5 carat gold leaf. Then it started talking about the health/social security benefits.

So, I think the guy who did this needs to get a life. He obviously doesn't have a GF to **** or anythin else useful. Buy him a guitar, TS, or a hooker.

Are you seriously retarded.. These are the times I wish I could flame people. It's called an article. Read one once in a while.

I guess writing a book would mean you never moved out side the house?

Oh take the piss all you want, but I'm not the one saying we'd all be dead if America didn't participate in this war am I?

And I'll have you know that I'm actually very mature for a 16 year old. Look up my posting history, for example.

Your understanding of war and global politics has truly enlightened me, Skippy.


I want my free iPod. And a Porsche.

And while I'm at it, the heads of nineteen Iraqis on my doorstep would be nice. My tax dollars are paying for this war; I'd at least like to see some of the benefits.

Phew. I thought we had a certified case of asshole-ism here.

I mean, how can anyone possibly think that Iraq had the power to touch America?!? Do they even have an international airport with flights to America? Sheesh.
