War Is Criminal: The Money Side
The war in Iraq and the war in Afghanistan have both been against civilian populations. (Neither has a government fighting us back.) That's the most criminal aspect of our government's conduct. But here's another criminal aspect. Nathan Yau at Flowing Data shows a graph of the way money in Development Fund for Iraq was spent.
Seems to me this is grounds for prosecution.
I'd like to see some graphs showing how far that money would go (both here and in Iraq) if well-spent.
