Thank God Iraq War is Ending - 4,469 Dead and 32,213 Injured

Thank god President Obama is following up on his campaign promise to get us out of Iraq.  What did we achieve with Iraq War 4,469 dead American soldiers and 32,213 injured Americans and 100,000 dead Iraqis for a couple of trillion dollars?

Thank god McCain was not elected president, because Bin Laden would still be alive (McCain said in a debate with Obama that he would not enter Pakistan to go after Bin Laden) and there is no way in hell we would be getting out of the endless Iraq war (as he recently complained).

Let's look at the costs of the Iraq war to get Saddam Hussein versus effort to get Muammar Gaddafi.

Saddam Hussein - $800 billion, 4,469 dead American soldiers and 32,213 injured Americans.  This does not count the medical costs of taking care of these injured heroes. 


Muammar Gaddafi - $1billion, 0 zero Americans killed and Syria might reimburse us the $1billion.


I am no math genius, but it seems to me that Obama is at least 3 orders of magnitude better at getting bad guys than Bush and that does not account for the true loss - the loss of lives and the injured Americans.
