Its like when you play monopoly against a kid, you keep giving them breaks in rent, and lend them money so you can keep destroying them. Makes sense to me.

wow, that's enough to give every citizen in the US about $22 bucks.

I am not saying that flippantly, either, this is one case of this. I wonder how much spending we could cut, jut by not sending our money top asshole regimes across the world.

Sadly it's not about cutting spending, all that debates about government spending and if it should be cut is just theatre for the plebs. This was a business investment. By investing in the people we're fighting we can insure they keep fighting and that we can keep spending more to enrich those in the military industrial complex. It's why we created ISIS after al-qade was no longer a big enough boogie man. The show must go on!

I wonder if some day the truth will be shown in a irrefutable, widespread way... and if that day comes, will the people care? learn anything about it?

I had this conversation a month ago.

If I was granted a few million from the US government I would actually make some money investing that back into America directly. Rehabbing houses and building out infrastructure. Either residential wind turbines or solar panels and tank-less water heaters for everyone.

Better usage would be paint, flowers and money to repair broken windows or fences. Making a neighborhood look nicer and maintains them will inspire people to take better care of their own areas.

We areas start looking run down, people care less and will allow more worse things to happen.

I dont think you understand how capitalism works.The goal is to run the government into the ground so private industries can take over infrastructure and utilities and make money directly without paying a royal tax to government.

Could start with the billions we give Israel.

Uh no, that's part of the Camp David accords. And we can't just break those.

We give Israel money that they're only allowed to use to buy weapons from US. That's paraphrased but seriously look into it.

No, actually, that is $22 we paid into taxes that we have away without really having a say how it will be used. Of course, a few dollars might be thought of as import taxes ... But still.

What about the 2.3 trillion the Pentagon reported missing the day before 9/11?

Oh, it's not missing. They just don't make up bullshit responses like $500 hammers and shit like that to cover where it went anymore.

All the DoD financial records, auditors and investigators were located in that branch of the pentagon that got hit on 9/11. Not only is it missing, but all the evidence is destroyed.

assuming that there is no return on investment you would be correct. But most people do not stay on it for extended periods of time. Any many get back to work or use the time to learn a new skill so they can get a better job.

Copypastad from the other site. Come on.

TIL: OP didn't do all his research before trying to karma whore. The money was found in 2014 INSIDE the Central Bank of Iraq. Wow Google! That was hard!
