Up to $60 billion squandered in Iraq and Afghanistan says The Wartime Contracting Commission. It’s time for massive overhaul.

As regular readers will know, I don’t publish very many articles here under the US Politics heading, in fact this is only the second.

Today’s article about the $60 Billion that has been squandered on contracts in Iraq and Afghanistan, is an exception because whilst Dr Lant gives his own thoughts about how to solve the problem, and he’s probably right, I have another suggestion.

But first this article highlights an issue which is a common issue across the world.

How can a developed country with so many people living in poverty, with so many natural disasters happening within it’s borders, causing more hardship and suffering to it’s own people, squander $60 Billion on a war, especially when that war is not even on it’s territory, but half way round the world?

My answer to the problem is simple; ‘Don’t get involved in the first place, and keep out of other countries affairs’. The US involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan started out with good intentions but now it’s just an unneccessary drain on resources and costing unnecessary lives… on both sides. And I also include the UK’s involvement in the same thought.

I admit that may be a little simplistic and probably would not work but I don’t know whether anyone else has noticed… the US did not get involved in the recent troubles in Libya (although the UK did with air support) and already Khadafi has been virtually ousted from power and the country is in the hands of a new government. Need I say more?
