I have a "Cost of War" counter in the left sidebar, just like a bunch of other blogs. I looked at it (I realize it look at it every day, but actually considered it) for the first time in a while. When I put it up in '04, it was half of what it is today. Imagine the good we could have done in the world and this country with that amount. Makes you realize how much of America's potential these assholes have squandered, let alone the lives they've wasted.
