Im in total agreement our system is broken, corrupt. But how can you honestly compare the two?By this logic the lives of our soldiers put in harms way are great bargains? Shall we discuss the actual necessity of the said wars? Those who were killed in these wars are disposable $? Is this the latest neocon argument? Im very curious to hear what the actual dollar amount is per American soldier. Does this dollar amount include those who came back and offed themselves after being used as the empire's thugs? What does this author (and those who choose to use this argument) price the lives of innocent civilians at?
If you can seriously argue this point then I think you should also factor in what a bargain you got for your soul.
