Default Re: IRAQ

I'm just thinking out loud here....re Iraq....after doing some reading today. Consider that the Congressional Budget Office puts the cost of the war at about $9 billion a month ($300 million per day). Consider that the cost of a single Cruise Missle costs about $500,000. Consider that Saddam Hussein had about 70-80 palaces that he used to alternate staying at to fake out would-be assassins. That's a cost of $40,000,000 to take-out all of the positions.

We ahem....sent a message to Muammar Kaddafi in '86....which he understood very well after a time. A one-day bombing raid fer Pete's sake!! The tactic worked then....why the heck didn't we do something similar with Hussein? Just thinking out loud (metaphorically).
