What about the cost?

Reader comment on item: What If the United States Had Not Invaded Iraq

Submitted by David Olds (United States), Sep 12, 2005 at 11:25

You failed to mention the main problems with this war. The cost in money and blood. Other means could have been used to gain the same advantages of this war. Why not assassinate Sadam using less costly means. Use the money to apprehend or kill terrorists in the US and abroad and secure our borders. President Bush is overconfident and incompetent, a dangerous combination for our country.
