New report by scholars with the Eisenhower Research Project at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International Studies –
PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — Nearly 10 years after the declaration of the War on Terror, the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan have killed at least 225,000 people, including men and women in uniform, contractors, and civilians. The wars will cost Americans between $3.2 and $4 trillion, including medical care and disability for current and future war veterans, according to a new report by the Eisenhower Research Project based at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International Studies. If the wars continue, they are on track to require at least another $450 billion in Pentagon spending by 2020.

UPDATE: jbjd posted an OPEN LETTER TO GREG ABBOTT, ATTORNEY GENERAL OF TEXAS – see link at foot of post
Dear Attorney General Cuccinelli:
On September 21, 2009 I sent via email a MEMORANDUM of COMPLAINT of ELECTION FRAUD against THE HONORABLE NANCY PELOSI, ACTING in a NON-GOVERNMENTAL ROLE as CHAIR, 2008 DNC SERVICES CORPORATION (“DNC”) CONVENTION: and ALICE TRAVIS GERMOND, SECRETARY, DNC; and REQUEST for INVESTIGATION by VIRGINIA ATTORNEY GENERAL to the attention of the Attorney General. The following day, September 22, 2009, I hand delivered copies of the COMPLAINT to the Attorney Generals office.
On October 9, 2009, I offered public testimony to the State Board of Elections detailing the primary legal points made in that Memorandum of Complaint.
Congress passed the unconstitutional healthcare bill yesterday, March 21, 2010. Following the vote, jbjd, the author of the ELECTION FRAUD COMPLAINT, learned that you intended to file suit on the grounds the healthcare bill violated the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Knowing I had filed a Complaint of Election Fraud here in Virginia, she contacted me. Has there been any action on that Complaint you filed? NO!
