War can bankrupt a country

Just wondering why all our righty friends show such moral indignation when some of their tax dollars are spent on assisting those unfortunates who are not as well off as us. But nary a whimper when the money goes for 9,000 dropped bombs at six figures apiece?

Seventy-five billion dollars for starters. Ask the British, who were almost bankrupted by their occupation of Iraq, how much fun that was. Oh yes and our idea for a puppet government, seems the British installed the good King Faisal in that capacity. Turned out to be quite a “cutup” as I understand.
