Iraq-related expenditues, what a bunch of Washington stupidity. It is very simple--cost effective and will make America money. At a set rate of $35.00 per unit of oil, the bean counters in Washington will determine the cost over runs to remove the inventory of supplies we have in the country. That amount, adjusted for the fact they have never been right about any cost for seventy years, and the money we will have to pay our own business leaders, politicians and supream court justices to buy us out of this stupid war, the adjusted again for the loss of life at one million per American will be divided by that $35.00 and that is how much oil we will begin in July of 2009 taking from Iraq. This oil will be sold and processed in America so the American people can have for three year fuel under a $1.00 a gallon.

It is time to allow the Iraqi government to pay for their freedom. As they did not purchase it with their lives and blood, as the government was put in place by the American military I feel we should allow them some discomfort by being allowed to give bACK TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, in oil what we will have to spend so they can start their civil war and lose.
