How long can this keep going on?

Unless you have a loved one in Iraq, the cost of our war there might seem be a remote abstraction. Recall how this war was supposed to pay for itself with Iraqi oil profits. Well that hasn't quite worked out, so what is it costing us? Go to the above link and select your state and/or city. For Denver, it works out to $463 for every man, woman and child. No wonder we can't afford paper and pencils for our elementary school children.
