So can we all ask the ruling parties responsible for going to war in Iraq for the money they spent on our behalf, to be put back in the various national coffers?
Or was it our fault for electing them?

Because I'm guessing the Chilcot Report, given it's 7 years of work, is probably close to accurate..

I did a google. It's in the Trillions now.
And I suspect you're right.

Hey, hey, HEY!!

Petrol here dropped back below $1 per litre for the first time in about 15 years - that's gotta be worth something, right? And that's what it was all about anyway, right?

(it's back up over $1.10 / L again, but that's not the point... right?)

I think it spread on to rare earth minerals.

Quote:
The aerial surveys determined that Afghanistan may hold 60 million tons of copper, 2.2 billion tons of iron ore, 1.4 million tons of rare earth elements such as lanthanum, cerium and neodymium, and lodes of aluminum, gold, silver, zinc, mercury and lithium


As for cheap gas, it's at almost $3/gal again in CA. As for whether this was all worth it, I think that depends on if you've been on the receiving end of govt pork projects because some people have definitely profited greatly from this entire affair.
