Edit: I didn't realize that two snarky four word sentences would garner so much commentary.

Think about what would have happened if Bush wound down the Iraq war in say 2008. On top of the unemployment from the recession we would have thousands of ex-military looking for jobs. We would also have defense contractors laying off in droves. The recession would have become a full blown depression.

This didn't happen because more than a few Republicans realized that they could have an economic stimulus without them actually voting for an economic stimulus. The wars provided the cover for the necessary ongoing deficit spending.
