Think Where We’d Be

September 10, 2006

“…the world is better off today with Saddam Hussein out of power. Think where we’d be if he was still there.” – vice president Dick Cheney, Sep 10, 2006

Put a slightly different way, think where we’d be if we hadn’t invaded Iraq.

  • We would be $313 billion dollars richer
  • We would have 2500 fewer grieving military families
  • We would have better relations with our allies around the world
  • We would have resources to increase border security and inspect cargo ships
  • We would not be babysitting a civil war with no end in sight

With all that time, money and personnel on our hands, we might even have caught bin Laden! At the very least it would be harder for him to radicalize others against us.

Just think where we’d be.

  1. Uh, you forgot the many, many servicemen with severe enough injuries to be knocked out of Iraq and the lifetime of care many of them will require.
