Keep the US Strong!

Today, the Information Clearing House starts off like this:

Number Of Iraqi Civilians Slaughtered In America's War? As Many As 250,000

Number of U.S. Military Personnel Sacrificed (Officially acknowledged) In America's War 2552

Cost of America's War in Iraq

This got me thinking. We can set up a formula to encapsulate the Iraq War.

$297 billion in expenses=2552 dead US military+(>250,000 Iraqi dead)

We can round this off further, simplify it, because, well, war is inexact...

$300 billion in expenses=3000 dead US military+(>300,000 Iraqi dead)

Divide by 300, and you get this, the Absolute Formula of the Iraq War:

$1 billion war machine profits=30 US military dead + (>1000 Iraqi dead)

This could be a great campaign tool for November! It should be obvious by now that what's good for US industry is good for the US. The sole beneficiaries of the Iraq War are the US Masters of War (you who build the big bombs, etc.), and it's fairly obvious that the only thing keeping the US economy out of a depression at this point is the unprecedented spending of money we don't have on war toys for big boys.

So, here's the pitch.

Keep the US Strong! For each 30 US Military sacrificed, a prize of $1 Billion will be awarded to US industry, to keep the US Strong! (some unintended side effects may occur, like perhaps as many as 1000 Iraqi dead...)

Is that such a large price to pay for Economic Vitality?

Keep the US Strong! for each 30 US military sacrificed, a prize of $1 billion will be awarded to US industry—to KEEP the US STRONG!

(some unintended side effects may occur, like perhaps as many as 1000 Iraqi dead...)
