Nobody is arguing what the wars did to the deficit, Oh Really. Your claim is that it led to economic meltdown. So make the connection. How did everything you claim above lead to the housing market bubble burst which is what triggered the economic collapse.<quoted text>
Bush charged his wars and tax cuts for the wealthy on his Bank of China credit card, Savannah. These debts have been added to the deficit. Geeez. And I thought airhead palin was the worst person for not having any substance between her ears.

George Bush sold the war as quick and cheap; it was long and costly. Even now, the US is paying billions to private contractors
"Actually, the Chinese had quite a bit to do with the war in that they profited from the interest on the loans they made that floated the U.S war debt. This debt will continue to increase as we remain stuck with the bill for that Fifth Fleet protecting the shipping lanes connecting Iraq’s oil with China’s ever expanding economy."
Quit trying to avoid it, quit trying to spin it, quit trying to make it sound like I don't already know about Bush and his wars. The question is...MAKE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE HOUSING MARKET BURST (which caused it) AND THE 2 UNFUNDED WARS (that you claim caused it).
You claim the 2 unfunded wars led to the collapse. The collapse was triggered by the housing market burst, that is a KNOWN FACT. So explain how what LED TO IT then CAUSED IT.
I don't know any other way to make it simple for you to understand. It's not that hard of a question...at least it shouldn't be for someone like you who acts like an expert about everything. Back up your claim. Make the connection. Or admit you can't.(Which I already know you can't since it had absolutely nothing to do with it).
