$3.7 billion a week

That, according to Defense Secretary Robert Gates, is how much money the Iraq War costs. And that's over and above the $9 billion plus per week that the Pentagon gets in its annual budget.

Could you imagine if we allocated resources to dealing with problems based on the actual seriousness of the threat to our way of life, rather than satisfying the egos of old men in Washington who need to see their will triumph?
