We could have eradicated poverty ten times over with the money spent on the war in Iraq.

Actually, much of the money you attribute to the “war machine” went into the pockets of the poor, working poor, and middle class through soldier’s wages and jobs with US defense contractors, not to mention the trillions we HAVE spent on War on Poverty initiatives.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
