As of this last Sunday, we have spent 1 Trillion dollars in our wars of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Feel safer?

I wish they would transfer some of those funds to help pay some national debt.

No, but I can already hear the next warhawk politician asking for another trillion so that I do feel safer.

And Terry, I feel like the U.S. created 10x the amount (and enabled the [edit] [potential] creation of many more) of hateful islamofascists by further ruining our image with these wars/civilian casualties than Osama could have drawn to his side in double the amount of time.

No, but at least air travel is much more complicated.
