Your View: Cost of war

LET me assure Kim Bray (YPCT 4-7-17) Australia’s foreign aid is small change when compared with the billions of dollars Australia spends on following the United States in its war-mongering in the Middle East.

How much did the invasion of Iraq cost Australian taxpayers? And how much is it still costing us? Ditto Afghanistan and now Syria.

Just as well those countries won’t send us the bill for all the destruction and human misery we have caused there. Germany had to pay a hefty price in reparation after World War II but I can’t see any country game enough to apply the same rule for the US and its acolytes, not in the near future anyway.
