Dave of the11thhour on the cost of the Iraq war.
Three Hundred Seventy Nine Billion Dollars spent on the Iraq war so far.
According to the CIA the population of Iraq is twenty six million seventy four thousand.
Let's do some simple math.
$379,000,000,000 / 26,074,906. = $14,535.
That's $14,535 per man, woman, and child in Iraq.
According to the CIA, Iraq's per capita income is $3,500, which means we have spent the equivalent of four years per capita income on each Iraqi since our invasion of that country.
Of course the money being spent on the war is not being spent on the average Iraqi. In fact Iraqis are much worse off financially than they were before the invasion.
We could have spent the last three years tossing stacks of one hundred dollars bills out of our Humvees, and at least that way there'd be far fewer IED's, and RPG attacks on our soldiers.
In fact I doubt there would be anyone attacking our troops at all - not without a great deal of fear, and trepidation.
The war is being financed with deficit dollars (stolen from future generations of U.S. taxpayers), and is making friends of President Bush richer by the day.
What has the war in Iraq gained the average citizen of the U.S.?
I can't think of anything gained which would be worth the blood, and treasure this war has already cost this nation.

The homes in the Lincoln Home Historic Area in Springfield, Illinois see hundred's of thousands of visitors each year, but what happens after the sun sets is somewhat of a mystery even to those who work in the popular tourist site.

Magic via Science - Making Orbs with Lasers
By synchronizing these pulses and controlling them with software, our device can draw any 3D objects in air.
-Japanese National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology-
Researchers at the Japanese National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology listed their accomplishments in the field of 3D display systems using lasers to create dots of plasma out of air.
- We have used laser produced plasma technology to make a flashpoint in the air.
- We have greatly improved the brightness, contrast, and production distance of the plasma by optimizing the laser beams.
- Using a laser plasma, we have been the first to succeed in displaying "real 3D images" in a space where there is nothing but air.

Japanese researchers use lasers to creating plasma dots. Using computer controlled lasers allows for the creation of 3D dot matrix patterns in mid-air!
