21,552,257 Americans

That’s how many educational scholarships could be recieved by American students in 2008 if we stopped using money to fund the explosion of military spending, and put the increase towards higher ed. opportunities. On the fifth anniversary of the invasion (says Campus Progress), over 158,000 American troops are still occupying Iraq while almost 4,000 American lives have been lost in Iraq alone- what of the War on Terror. Over three trillion dollars have been wasted.

What could three trillion dollars provide? Aside from scholarships for 21 million Americans, a cleaner conscience?

Nothing like burning through the power of the American dollar with the power of the war narrative in action. Monetary protection where our conscience can no longer provide cover for religious and cultural persecution.
