From Yahoo! News:
"By ANDREW TAYLOR, Associated Press Writer Mon Jul 9, 6:51 PM ET
WASHINGTON - The boost in troop levels in Iraq has increased the cost of war there and in Afghanistan to $12 billion a month, and the total for Iraq alone is nearing a half-trillion dollars, congressional analysts say.
All told, Congress has appropriated $610 billion in war-related money since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror assaults, roughly the same as the war in Vietnam. Iraq alone has cost $450 billion.
The figures come from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service, which provides research and analysis to lawmakers."
... if they gave all that money and shared it evenly to the people of my country instead, every single person, including small children, would get more than $100 thousand cash each.What would you do with 12 000 000 000 US dollars per month?

Maybe the next president finds a land at the edge of bankrupcy?
|17:54:16 Jul 10th 07 - Mr. Breadlord:|

wave it into bush face telling it is the ammount he trows away every month, then buy a huge villa of it
|23:12:40 Jul 10th 07 - Mr. Killstone The Destroyer:|
what i would do with 12 billion. i would first buy an iphone and a big house and a nice car for when i can drive. id give ATLEAST 1 or 2 billion to the poor and to churches and donate it and such. but that number would probobly be closer to 10 or 11 billion cause 1 or 2 billion is enough to live off of ;).
mabye buy something else nice like a baseball team macdonalds burger king or dairy queen or something. i gotta make a profit ;)
and then give most of teh profits and donate it
|23:24:20 Jul 10th 07 - Mr. Strike Zakira:|
omg why cant they just use 12 billion dollar to bride the enemy to giving them what they want rofl
|23:31:29 Jul 10th 07 - Mr. Kassius Xxi:|
id gie it to the poor..............naah id make it all into doller coins then build a house out of them.......hey i dont need a reason
|23:33:54 Jul 10th 07 - Mr. Sakaal II:|
What if the poor buy weapons with that money and start shooting rockets at you, because you only gave them that many billions and not twice more?
|23:42:08 Jul 10th 07 - Sir Razios:|
I'd buy VU for a million, Kassius for another million, The white house for a billion. Bribe the president to make Me president for a day.
|23:45:01 Jul 10th 07 - Mr. Sakaal II:|
Or maybe the poor people get used to you giving them 12 billion a month. Then they
start living on it, make more children, and feed them with the food
they buy with that money. Let's say you could feed about 240
million people in poor countries with that money (many live on less
than a couple dollars per day). Then the population grows over 240
million and your money is not enough anymore. And then the economy in
your country goes in a recession and you need to cut the "war budget".
So no more 12 billion per month.
|00:00:14 Jul 11th 07 - Sir Bruto Cikayson:|
Put it in a savings account and keep on living normally, getting ready for college and all. Then when I've done some research I'll donate it to various causes like feeding the starving, alternative energy, etc.
I'd buy a kickass laptop first though :)
|00:04:21 Jul 11th 07 - Mr. Sakaal II:|
Of course the capital would need to be invested wisely to keep the profits running in. Well let's suppose that was already done, then what to do with the monthly allowance?
|00:26:10 Jul 11th 07 - Mr. Catman:|
i Would use the money to illegally transport one hundred alligators into D.C. who are on steroids and psp and watch from afar what happens. then id use the rest of the money to rig my sentancing
|01:58:13 Jul 11th 07 - Mr. Atreides:|
I'd use it to buy daily supply of crack...uhhh.....forget that last statement.
|02:05:47 Jul 11th 07 - Overlord Dvsmasta:|
pfft.. 500% interest. Are you just typing in any number that comes to your mind?
|02:25:55 Jul 11th 07 - Mr. Mbeidas:|
lol its right they pay alot of money but the petrol give them money and pluss also
|02:29:06 Jul 11th 07 - Mr. Mbeidas:|
i also heard if america give the cost of one rocket to starving childrens they can feed 50 million child , which is 12.5 times on my country population .
|02:56:18 Jul 11th 07 - Sir Vostov:|
If we all were willing to beat our swords into farming tools...would not the world be better.
But we men are prideful creatures...if we do not control something, we tend to destroy it so others may not.
|03:03:41 Jul 11th 07 - Sir Tiber Septim II:|
Which is exactly what we are doing in this game, woot!
|03:43:55 Jul 11th 07 - Mr. Mbeidas:|
|11:35:12 Jul 11th 07 - Mr. Mijamoto Mushashi:|
you could pay the 'underdevelopped' countries their national debt ... it would help them get their countries running ... the'd be able to grow their own economy and eventually they could stand alone and care for themselves ...
provided, that they educate their people, and try not to fight amongst eachother ... a lot of the money would be needed, just to change mentality ...
but, maybe, maybe, it could work ... show them respect, let them take control over their own situation (maybe external help is needed, but it should not be inforced), and eventually ...
and in those 12 billion, the americans spend ... bribes are included (like a lot of east-european countries get US dollars to ....)
on the other hand ... it would only be fair if we gave them a reasonable compensation and even, maybe, give back what we have stolen over the last few hundred years ... our ancesters are to blame, but it doesn't take away our responsability.
|12:45:51 Jul 11th 07 - Mr. Breadlord:|
i would buy my own land and make it a huge nature resevior and live in it like like the first humans did.
|13:02:00 Jul 11th 07 - Mr. Sakaal II:|
Breadlord, you know my father thinks the same way. That is a very harmonious way of living with the nature.
|13:40:41 Jul 11th 07 - Ms. Salmon:|
I'd buy sex with Madonna.
|03:54:22 Jul 12th 07 - Mr. Mbeidas:|
i think no sakaal , ther's a natural balance , as i once heared ther is like 950 arabian have more than billion if they justt give each man in even each man on earth will get 45 million
but ther must be a natural balance as 2 farmers watched a snake , they gone and kill it and found a bird and kill it , then mouses start to be , why cuz snakes and i forgot the name of the bird eat mouses so they gives a natural balance between good and evil .
but the thing i hate that america got the highest number of poor people
|04:42:06 Jul 12th 07 - Mr. Sigheart:|
I might have enough money to by some of the VU players girlfriends(not naming anyone but you can fill in the gaps).
|05:51:37 Jul 12th 07 - Mr. Sakaal II:|
Mbeidas, the world population (2007) is approximately 6.6 billion. If you give everybody $45 million, you will need 6.6 billion times $45 million that is 2.97 x 10^17 or 297 quadrillion dollars.
|06:11:38 Jul 12th 07 - Mr. Mbeidas:|
lol 1) nice math
i meant like 950 have billion and more
|06:42:27 Jul 12th 07 - Mr. Sakaal II:|
Well, in that case 1 billion divided evenly between 950 men makes about 1.05 million each. You should still check the figures... :)
|14:28:50 Jul 13th 07 - Mr. Breadlord:|
well sinse it comes from US citizens money thats about 200 dollars per fammily.. each moth? or something like that..going into other peoples pockets.
|16:05:35 Jul 13th 07 - Mr. Mbeidas:|
the bush's are well known in petrol company's and have many
|21:34:27 Jul 17th 07 - Dreadlord Valarion:|
What would I do with that kind of money...hmmm
1. IŽd retire
2. uhm..hoard it and protect it fiercely then spend it before I die so no spoiled grandchildren will ever get near it.
|14:06:51 Jul 28th 07 - Mr. Goldmeister:|
I don't think its right to just give the poor money it should be invested on giving all the poor people in the world a proper education. Then they could provide for themselfs for life.
|20:46:26 Dec 31st 08 - Mr. Messiah:|
1. Put the money in a bank in a tax paradise country, invest some.
|22:10:41 Dec 31st 08 - Duke Michael Deallus:|
[[No specific order after 1]]
1. Put most of the money into a bank

|22:26:57 Dec 31st 08 - Mr. Kegstand Mcfarland:|
If I had 12 billion a month you folks would never have to hear about war in the middle east again...it would be a roller rink, all glass. To top it off anyone who protested after that would find another black market bought russion nuclear *beep*nal landing on their country too. I would then take all your women and give them my seed and within 20 years or so my demon spawns would start taking over what is left of the unmelted civilized world. We would then colonize several spots and let only the best looking women stay. all men in service in said colonies would have free tang. all those outsaide the walls would be chuckin rocks at each other and running from the wildlife they once dominated.
|22:32:24 Dec 31st 08 - Mr. Vishnu:|
|22:32:41 Dec 31st 08 - Mr. Kegstand Mcfarland:|
If you want a more realistic approach to ending criminal activity you just start shooting family members of suspects and civilians close by or dismember them in public while alive until someone starts giving up names...Even if its the wrong names you will sooner or later hit someone who gives the right names or you will run out of people...Either way it's win/win. No more hiding criminals! Taa Daa!
|22:35:06 Dec 31st 08 - Mr. Vishnu:|
But that's just inhumane... I am a humane person... hehehe as far as you're concerned... Lol
|22:36:21 Dec 31st 08 - Mr. Kegstand Mcfarland:|
I not forgetting, I said colonies would be set up. At this stage in life we can live in a basic aquarium and provide ourselves with all the tools needed to survive in a bubble :) And if it didn't work I still die with bewbs in mai face...
|22:52:49 Dec 31st 08 - Mr. Blood Frenzy:|
i'd probly donate 1/10 to charities/churches, I'd put away aload of it in a bank, I'd buy some stuff for me, friends, family, random people on the street who claim to be my long lost cousin etc. And I'd put all the remainders into buying aloada shops/companies to get even richer with lol.
|00:10:17 Jan 1st 09 - Mr. Vishnu:|
which would all eventually close....
|00:32:36 Jan 1st 09 - Duke Michael Deallus:|
I would go back to England and live in my family's castle :) (I am not kidding)
|01:08:22 Jan 1st 09 - Mr. Vishnu:|
|03:25:57 Jan 1st 09 - Prince Valan Septim:|
Sean Connery ftw!
Michael, they'd better have wi-fi there!!!
|07:24:35 Jan 1st 09 - Duke Michael Deallus:|
I could play VU their next year ;) I would have to carry a weapon to keep Scientist off my property
|08:08:40 Jan 1st 09 - Death Lord Draven:|
12 billion a month eh? But makes 18 billion a month for the country, that's the part no one tells you. War makes money, it doesn't lose it. That's why everytime there's a financial crisis we go to war somewhere. It's not a Republican or a Democrat thing, it's the government spending out of control plain and simple. Ever since we went to the fiat money system the spending has been non stop.
|16:59:30 Jan 1st 09 - Hentai Verll:|
I'd buy myself a harem.
