Cost of War, Part Three Of Robert Greenwald's Rethink Afghanistan Now Available For Viewing

Reported by Ellen - April 20, 2009 -

Robert Greenwald (with whom we are proud to be associated) writes:

As we pay our tax bills, it seems an appropriate time to urge everyone to Rethink Afghanistan, a war that currently costs over $2 billion a month but hasn't made us any safer. Everyone has a friend or relative who just lost a job. Do we really want to spend over $1 trillion on another war? Everyone knows someone who has lost their home. Do we really want spend our tax dollars on a war that could last a decade or more? The Obama administration has taken some smart steps to counter this economic crisis with its budget request. Do we really want to see that effort wasted by expanding military demands?
