Isn't this stupid (Iraq) war part of the reason why are in such a deficit?

I think we should open "Lobbyist Hawk Hunting Season". This is ridiculous. Republicans preach about being fiscally conservative yet they lobby to spend all of this money on unnecessary military crap.

Update: Remember people, this war based on a lie is costing us about $10 BILLION /month! That's BILLION! I know there are many people that don't know numbers that well (it's 1000 stacks of $1 million). I would rather give this money to GM and Chrysler to help Americans keep jobs HERE IN THE US.
Update 2: And lets stop with the "defending" argument. This country never attacked us (Is this what FOX News is reporting?). We need to defend ourselves from ....OUR POLITICIANS.
