Iraq war costs could top 2 trillion

The cost of the Iraq war could top $US2 trillion, far above the White House’s pre-war projections, when long-term costs such as lifetime health care for thousands of wounded US soldiers are included.

Al-Qaeda No. 2 wasn’t on site during U.S. attack.

Pakistan on Saturday condemned a purported CIA airstrike on a border village that officials said unsuccessfully targeted al-Qaeda’s second-in-command, and said it was protesting to the U.S. Embassy over the attack that killed at least 17 people.

The US is not at war with Pakistan, yet is so out of control that it allows a spy agency to launch missile attacks. It’s all quite insane, isn’t it?

    The Beast is out of control, the only answer is to kill the beast or die.
