Not to get to political, and not to defend Bush, I hated him. But the billions wasted on the war is not what really ruined our economy, though it did not help. It was the housing market crashing and other things that really screwed the economy over.

I am not trying to sound like the US is perfect and more important then your country, etc. But we simply supply to much of the worlds food (exported, paid for, not talking about donations). When our economy gets bad, it makes everybody else food prices go up; as they have been everywhere.
It is a great big system; if you want your economy to stay good/get better, well then your country better either come invade and take over the US or you better hope the US economy gets better faster, or if you are not suffering yet you will soon.
