Iraq: One billion dollars a week

Raed Jarrar says, at a time when the US army is spending more than ONE BILLION DOLLARS every single week in Iraq alone, the United States government doesn’t have enough money to go ahead with basic development and infrastructure projects.

The billions of dollars wasted by the war adminstration should be spared to be used for better purposes. This money should be spent in fixing the many mistakes committed in Iraq, and for enhancing the qaulity of life in the US.
