Guns into Plowshares, Anyone?

From Boston.com:
Including the $124.2 billion bill, the total cost of the Iraq war may reach $456 billion in September, according to the National Priorities Project, an organization that tracks public spending.

The amount got us wondering: What would $456 billion buy?
Among the highlights:
- Free gas for everybody for 1.2 years
- With just one-sixth of the US money targeted for the Iraq war, you could convert all cars in America to run on ethanol.
- Feed and educate the world's poor for five and a half years (WTF?!?!?!!)
- 14.5 million free rides to Harvard

This shit is depressing. Fucking warmongers.
